It is our responsibility to take care of the environment and natural resources of this planet. Pollution, unplanned use of natural resources, inability to take proper steps to protect the environment and huge population have already damaged the environment of this planet. We have to be careful before it is too late.
Green living is a lifestyle that not only secures a healthy living for us but saves this environment as well. By following green living tips you can live a healthy life, save money and perform your bit of responsibility towards this planet.
If you have been told that it is difficult to lead such a lifestyle, then it was false. Green living is considered the simplest form of living a life. Plenty of green living tips and ideas are available around. I have picked up five easy and effective tips to help you get started with. Apply these ideas in your life; become healthy, happy and a responsible citizen.
Love this planet as much as you love your home
This is the basic requirement; unless you love this planet, you will not feel the urge to apply the green living ideas in your life. Nobody wants to live in an untidy home; you always try to keep your home clean. So use organic products as much as you can, do not waste natural resources and recycle reusable products as much as possible. Avoid plastic bags, wrappers and products; plastic does not biodegrade and remains unaltered for years.
Grow a plant
Plants are like the filtering units of this planet. They supply oxygen in the air and take an important role in cloud formation as well. Grow plants in your home garden; inspire others to grow plants too.
Save Energy
Energy consumption is increasing in a frightening rate; if we do not control our energy usage and make the best use of alternative energy, entire world will be in a big trouble.
If using alternative energy is not affordable for you, switch to energy efficient LED lights. LED stands for light emitting diode; LED light bulbs are much more energy efficient than incandescent lights and CFLs. It will not only reduce your energy consumption, but will protect the environment too.
Water Conservation
Effects of global warming are so prominent; glaciers are melting and sea level is rising above the normal. Scientists have already cautioned us to be careful about the usage of water. Unplanned water consumption has destroyed the natural underground water reservoir of earth! Rain water harvesting is the best way to go at this point.
Use Organic Products
From food to products of daily use - you will get an organic, herbal or natural form of everything. Switch to organic products and live a healthy life.
