It's that time of year again, when we make resolutions about who we want to be and the things we want to achieve in the year ahead; going to the gym more, donating money to charity, spending more time with our families. However, setting targets that will truly make a positive impact to our environment, nature and the world around us may feel overwhelming for eco-minded resolution-makers.
We have put together our top 5 simple yet effective goals that you can incorporate into your new year's resolutions for 2022.
Shop locally and reduce your carbon footprint: Make a point of visiting your local farmers market. Keep an eye on what's in season in your area and do some homework on the producers that supply your favourite foods. If you like to pick up a morning coffee on your way to work, try popping into your small independent coffee shops instead. And remember to take your reusable cup with you!
Switch to loose leaf or plastic free teabags: Tea drinking is a familiar hobby shared by many of us; yet, with 165 million cups of tea consumed every day in the UK, our habit generates a lot of trash! The good news is that everyday waste may be readily prevented by making a few simple changes. Whether you buy your tea in bulk, produce it yourself, or get it prepackaged in environmentally friendly materials, making the switch from traditional tea bags couldn't be easier!
Check secondhand before buying new: Purchasing used items, particularly clothing, does not always imply that you cannot afford new items. It's possible that the products at secondhand shops are rare vintage, limited-edition items, or anything of substantial worth that you'll never get another chance to acquire if you miss out. But the most essential reason is the amount of pollution you can save. Choosing to shop for pre-owned products is a wonderful option for any purpose you have. They provide excellent value to you while also benefiting the environment, its a win-win!
Buy less food or meal prep: A simple approach to get started on your sustainability objectives is to be more mindful of what we consume. Food waste is a major issue across the world, not just because of the moral considerations of totally fine meals ending up as waste instead of on someone's plate, but also because of the trash's carbon footprint and environmental effects. Meal prepping provides an easy way to prevent the purchase of unnecessary foods while saving you money!
