THE LIST FOR A NATURAL LIFESTYLE LIFE - BE CREATIVE!
The mental, physical, emotional transition to natural life takes time. To see our wasteful behavior, to gain knowledge and background, to change our habits or to find good eco-friendly products for home
To not produce waste or to produce as little of it as possible.
Natural lifestyle is to talk about substitutes or solutions, we will talk about a mental change, using the environmental friendly rules:
We live in a world of over-consumption and for most of us, the first priority is comfort. Because of this, industries invested a lot in trying to make their products more convenient and easier to use –which led us to where we are today, the era of disposable products.
We don’t need to clean them or carry, we just throw them away and they disappear.
Disappear? We wish.
Substances such as plastic, polystyrene and more are none degradable. They pollute the earth, produce greenhouse gases, end up in the ocean, polluting it and damaging the animals.
The mental change is to start looking at the products in our hand and realize that throwing it away won’t make it disappear, so the solution is to refuse it.
When we look at a product and ask ourselves, do we really need it? Mostly the answer is no, and for the better.
When the answer is yes - we try to reduce the damage.
We choose glass over plastic, because glass is degradable, and it reduces the damage our shopping does. There are many ways to reduce the damage, but to do so we need to first be aware of the damage we do.
Whether it's a container you already own or something you don’t want to stop buying, you can get creative. The idea is to stop looking at things we own and don’t use and describe them like garbage, and try and find out how they can serve us in a different way.
Don’t give up on your belongings too quickly. There is someone who could repair them, and sometimes you can fix them by yourself. Don’t buy a new one so easily, first try to repair it.
Recently, many environmental specialists say that recycling isn’t a solution. It’s a process that wastes a lot of energy, sometimes pollutes and in a lot of cases, especially in plastic, the outcomes aren’t efficient.
Still, the rule about plastic is that it’s better to try and recycle it than throw it in the garbage.
It is one of the most important tasks – because environmental change needs the help of all of us. Try and apply the natural list in your life, for a cleaner world, for us and for future generations.
