If you ask yourself now, what and especially how you can start to recycle and live a more sustainable lifestyle, we collected some good basic tips on how to start:
1. Reduction: And with that we mean your whole consumption. It begins with having less hot showers, consciously reduce the usage of air conditioners during summer and less usage of the heater in winter. Instead of posting letters and reading paper magazines, you can send mails and read the newspaper online. Also an alternative would be using car pools, E-vehicles or public transport, to reduce the bad emmission of cars. And last but not least, as our NinetyNine soaps states: stop the water while using me!
2. Second-hand: It is not only cheaper for you it also reduces the enquiries on rarely resources.
3. Conscious: Try to buy products which are recycled or have ingredients, which have a lower impact on the environment. For example, buying local and organic products with less packaging. Eating less, or more concious produced meat, as meat has a huge environmental footprint.
Even small steps can have a massive impact and we owe it to the planet. We as a team for example try to conciously make decisions to decrease our carbon footprint. For example by using products made of wood, bamboo and other more sustainable products. Our toothbrush for instance are made of bamboo and instead of plastic straws we use paper straws. The toothbrush cups are also sustainable and we only use green cleaning, avoiding the use of chemical products.
As you see, the more you pay attention, the more you can create change. Do not look away and be part of a good change.
