When it comes to the environment, we can all individually contribute to a more sustainable lifestyle. Recycling your rubbish is just a part of life, however there is so much more that can be done as part of your everyday routine, it's simple and will help contribute to the overall environmental health and well-being of our planet.
I decided to do some research and the more I read the more I was transformed. Consider all the items you use everyday in your own household, plastic coffee capsules, toothbrushes, rubbish bags, sanitary pads (yes these are predominately made up from plastic) baby nappies, plastic cling wrap, not to mention the little bits of plastic packaging from parcels and bits and pieces. These bits of plastic normally go into landfill, and have a guess at how long it will take to breakdown? I was completely shocked! When I read that it can take between 500 to 1000 years I felt sickened.
Actually the more I read the more overwhelmed I felt. So right there, I decided that I may not be able to make a difference on a grand scale, but I was able to implement small changes in my own life that would impact the amount of rubbish I was producing.
If everyone could be more mindful of their own daily actions, we could start to make a difference on a bigger scale. Education and starting a conversation with people about being more environmentally aware is important. There are so many ideas, books and articles that can feed you with information towards zero waste.
I thought I would share a few simple things that everyone can start doing right now, if you don't already that is.
Opt for a compostable bamboo toothbrush
Most items have a recycling place including batteries, computers and mobile phones but did you know some X-rays can be recycled as well? Before you throw it out and it ends up in landfill, take a couple of minutes to search online and see if there is a recycling plan for that item. As consumes we drive production through our demand for more to be made, so let’s start supporting our innovators and companies that are working toward a cleaner, healthier planet by being more mindful of our own purchases.
