4 Easy Ways To Live Sustainably At Home.

{AD} I think it’s now more than important to live a sustainable lifestyle for various different reasons. Not only is it extremely good for the environment but it will also make a huge difference for the next generation. The choices we make right now, both big and small, do have a huge impact in our environment. I’m really glad that more people are promoting and encouraging others to follow a sustainable lifestyle because remember, we only have one world.

In today’s post, I wanted to share with you 4 ways to live sustainably at home. Before we start making any changes outside, we should be changing what’s happening inside – more specifically in your home! These are things that you might be already doing or things you weren’t already aware of, either way they will help you live more sustainably. As always, if you are interested – keep on reading!

Je pense qu’il est maintenant plus qu’important de vivre un mode de vie durable pour diverses raisons. Non seulement c’est extrêmement bon pour l’environnement, mais cela fera également une énorme différence pour la prochaine génération. Les choix que nous faisons actuellement, grands et petits, ont un impact énorme sur notre environnement. Je suis vraiment heureux que de plus en plus de gens promeuvent et encouragent les autres à adopter un mode de vie durable, car rappelez-vous, nous n’avons qu’un seul monde.

Dans le post d’aujourd’hui, je voulais partager avec vous 4 façons de vivre durablement à la maison. Avant de commencer à faire des changements à l’extérieur, nous devrions changer ce qui se passe à l’intérieur – plus particulièrement dans votre maison! Ce sont des choses que vous faites peut-être déjà ou des choses dont vous n’étiez pas encore conscientes, de toute façon elles vous aideront à vivre de manière plus durable.

SELL OR DONATE YOUR ITEMS

If you are a hoarder like me then you probably have a ton of unnecessary items pilling up at home, especially clothes. One of the best items that you could probably sell and make profit is clothing. If you have any clothes that you don’t wear or don’t see yourself wearing them anymore, consider selling or donating them. Not only are you not wasting the items but they will help those in need. This applies to other household items as well! By selling or donating the items you don’t need anymore, you are extending the life/use of the item.

Si vous êtes un accumulateur comme moi, vous avez probablement une tonne d’objets inutiles à la maison, en particulier des vêtements. Les vêtements sont l’un des meilleurs articles que vous pourriez probablement vendre et réaliser des bénéfices. Si vous avez des vêtements que vous ne portez pas ou que vous ne vous voyez plus porter, pensez à les vendre ou à les donner. Non seulement vous ne gaspillez pas les articles, mais ils aideront ceux qui en ont besoin. Cela s’applique également à d’autres articles ménagers! En vendant ou en faisant don des articles dont vous n’avez plus besoin, vous prolongez la durée de vie / l’utilisation de l’article.

One of the best and most effective ways to live sustainably is by using eco-friendly & sustainable products at home! If you are able to find a brand that sells household products then it’s a win-win situation. If you haven’t heard of The Cheeky Panda before then you must check them out! Not only are their products eco-friendly and plastic free but they are also made in 100% sustainable bamboo. When I received my toilet rolls, the packaging was plastic free as well! Their products are completely natural and don’t contain any chemicals.

You can find a huge range of products from beauty to baby products on their website. In addition, they donate a part of every product sold to help protect the rainforests.

L’un des moyens les meilleurs et les plus efficaces de vivre de manière durable est d’utiliser des produits écologiques et durables à la maison! Si vous parvenez à trouver une marque qui vend des produits ménagers, c’est une situation gagnant-gagnant. Si vous n’avez jamais entendu parler de The Cheeky Panda auparavant, vous devez les découvrir!

Leurs produits sont également très doux pour la peau, donc si vous avez la peau sensible, ils sont un must!

 

RECYCLE!

I know it’s something that everyone already knows but I cannot stress how important it is to recycle as much as possible. It’s something I notice even now, people don’t really recycle and it is harmful for the environment. There are so many ways you can recycle that won’t cost any extra money for instance, use a reusable bag instead of buying a plastic one, make sure that you are putting the right materials in your recycling bin and have separate bins for every material which will make it easier to recycle afterwards.

Je sais que c’est quelque chose que tout le monde sait déjà, mais je ne peux pas souligner à quel point il est important de recycler autant que possible. C’est quelque chose que je remarque même maintenant, les gens ne recyclent pas vraiment et c’est nocif pour l’environnement. Il y a tellement de façons de recycler qui ne coûteront pas d’argent supplémentaire, par exemple, utilisez un sac réutilisable au lieu d’en acheter un en plastique, assurez-vous que vous mettez les bons matériaux dans votre bac de recyclage et avez des bacs séparés pour chaque matériau ce qui facilitera le recyclage par la suite.

GROW YOUR OWN FRUITS & VEGETABLES

I think this has to be the most creative ways to live sustainably and that is to grow your own fruits & vegetables! I know this is something that’s not accessible to everyone if you don’t have a garden but even if you live in an apartment, you can try to grow your own fruits, vegetables or even herbs by planting seeds in a container or pot. Not only will you be able to save money by growing your own food but it’s also very good for the environment.

Je pense que ce doit être la façon la plus créative de vivre de manière durable et c’est de cultiver vos propres fruits et légumes! Je sais que c’est quelque chose qui n’est pas accessible à tout le monde si vous n’avez pas de jardin, mais même si vous vivez dans un appartement, vous pouvez essayer de faire pousser vos propres fruits, légumes ou même des herbes en plantant des graines dans un récipient ou un pot. Non seulement vous pourrez économiser de l’argent en cultivant votre propre nourriture, mais c’est aussi très bon pour l’environnement.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR READING!

This post is in partnership with The Cheeky Panda.

  1. Grow your fruit and vegetable? Not everyone is able to do something like that and Eco-friendly product are pretty expencive and not everyone can affort them. It’s correct to start from us to do something for the environment, but it’s not enough if we don’t have a little help!

    1. Eco-friendly products are expensive depending on the product in question which is a shame but if you are in a position to afford them then it’s something good you can do for the environment. As for growing your own fruits and vegetables, unless you are growing every single fruit and vegetable – the seeds aren’t expensive in my opinion. But you are right, it would be a lot better if we had a little bit of help. Thank you so much for reading 😊

  2. I always wanted to have an herb garden but never tried. I think I am ready. My family and I recycle and donate as much as we can every time by eliminating items from our closet that we no longer use. I would instead go to a family or individual who can make use of them. Thank you. I truly enjoyed your blog.

  3. Great post!
    I think it’s important that people don’t feel shamed about ‘not doing’, and feel good about doing what they are able to. It’s true not everyone can have a large veggie garden, but maybe you can just grow a few herb plants in your window. That gives you access to fresh product, that you don’t have to buy, and doesn’t use any packaging. Every little bit adds up.
    Two things that used to go with ‘recycle’ were reduce and re-use. Those are also important, and don’t get discussed as much any more. It can be a pain but I keep my Amazon boxes and often use them when I sell and have to ship an item. Saves buying another box or shipping envelope.

    1. Thank you so much! 😊 You are absolutely right, it’s not about about how many things you do, it’s about what you are able to do – no matter how big or small it is – to help the environment in the way you can. As long as you are contributing something, that’s what matters. I use my Amazon boxes as well to either store or sell items.

  4. Great post, and you can garden with any container and just a little bit of space even if it is just a little herb garden, it is also just good for stress relief. Eco products are expensive I agree but I do try to buy the eco alternative whenever I can, they are usually very high quality and every little bit helps. Just doing maybe the little thing you can do will make a huge difference in the long run.

    1. Thank you lovely! Exactly! Eco-friendly products are expensive but the quality is amazing so it’s understandable that the price is a bit high. Thank you so much for reading ❤️

  5. I have been recycling items for use a lot recently! I have been burning a lot of candles so keeping the glasses from those. If you know of the Gu desserts, I have been recycling the glass pots from those as something to put my miscellaneous bits in whether it’s jewellery or my beauty blender. So important to be eco friendly!

    1. I use this candle trick as well! Ohh that’s a fab idea! And yes, I know them! They look super delicious but I’ve never tried them. I’m definitely going to check them out now haha. Let me know if you have any favourites, I’ll probably go for vanilla or chocolate. Those are my favourites!

    2. I tried the Spanish lemon cheesecake one last time, and I think I tried the chocolate ones before that. Both were delicious! They are also gluten-free too so don’t feel half as bad when I have it hehe.
