Have you always wanted to be more eco-friendly, but you aren't sure where to even start?
You are not alone! It is easy to get overwhelmed with all the earth-friendly options and actions that we hear about all the time! Let us help you to take a step to be more sustainable today!
Reuse your shopping bag!
Eco-friendly shopping bags are such an easy way to help the environment! Find a trendy, sustainable pattern or choose a simple cotton tote and never worry about using plastic bags again! Always try to keep a spare one or two in your car in case of unplanned groceries. Why use reusable enviro bags? Australians use up to 3.9 billion plastic bags annually - and that's 175 each a year on average! Choose the Earth-friendly bags and feel great shopping guilt-free and in style!
Stock up your pantry in a bulk food store!
Are you feeling overwhelmed every time you think of going plastic-free while shopping for your favourite ingredients? Visit one of The Source stores and forget about your worries about waste free bulk shopping! At The Source Bulk Foods, you can easily find all of your yummy nuts, seeds, grains, herbs, and spices! You can also find all of your cleaning and beauty products, superfoods, snacks and so much more! Bulk food stores are proudly plastic bag free and they invite you to bring your own containers, bags, and bottles to refill as well!
Go vege for ONE day a week!
In the last couple of years, movements and initiatives like Meatless Monday, which promote avoiding animal products one day a week, have grown rapidly!
Let us tell you that just after one month of eating veggie, an individual human being will help avoid the death of 33 animals, the use of 33,000 gallons of water for animal food production, the destruction of 900 square feet of forest, the creation of an extra 600 pounds of CO2 gas, and the feeding of 1,200 pounds of grain to animals that could have fed starving communities worldwide. From these numbers, it's easy to see that even one person adopting a vegan diet for just one day has a significant impact!
Jump on your bike!
Trying to find a way to be more earth friendly and slim down at the same time? Leave your car in the garage and get a city bike! Cycling to work or to get your morning coffee fix will both make you more ecological and bring so many health benefits! It increases your cardiovascular fitness and strengthens all of the major muscle groups of your body! Taking time for a mindful bike ride can be your own meditation, a little break from our busy lifestyles.
Get a KEEP CUP!
Did you know that ONE MILLION disposable cups are ending up in landfill every minute? No, it's not a mistake, EVERY MINUTE! You can get them in glass or ceramic version, our berry favourite is Pottery For The Planet with so many beautiful designs!
Hopefully, we have inspired you to go a little bit greener this Winter!
