This Earth Day, Make a Sustainable Start at Home

Tips to reduce waste - World Earth Day 2021

This Earth Day, let’s make living sustainably a possibility. We all must have, at some point in our lives thought of reducing environmental impact in some way or the other. What better time to start than Earth Day? Celebrated each year on April 22, Earth Day underlines the need to build a healthier, more sustainable planet.

How can you help? By starting to form greener habits like the ones mentioned below

Conserve Energy:

Start by turning off the lights and electronics when unused, turn off your desktop computers at night instead of putting them to sleep. Change your light bulb to compact florescent bulb. Turn off the lights every time you leave home. It’s easy to overlook these habits but once formed, one doesn’t have to think about it consciously.

Go crafty with your kids

Find a way to make use of things around the house. Don’t throw away things just yet, use them to make DIY crafts and other utilities for home. For example, use old boxes for storing stationary and old clothing to make rugs. Make it a habit to reuse cans, bottles and plastic and recycle them.

Eat locally grown organic food

When we think organic food, we always think of imported veggies from across the globe. But getting foreign grown veggies to your doorstep can significantly increase your carbon footprint. Therefore, look for organic choices from home-grown local farmer’s market instead.

Use Water Judiciously

This one goes without saying - take shorter shower, install low-flow showerheads or faucet aerators if required, turn off the tap while brushing and get a water bottle you can reuse.

Walk everywhere possible

Take a walk instead of using your vehicle. It does well for the environment and also keeps you fit. It not only reduces carbon footprint but also reduces noise pollution.

Grow your own veggies

Not everything needs to be store brought. You can easily start growing your own herbs and spices for everyday kitchen use like coriander, curry eaves, onions, mint, basil, parsley and the likes.

Make compost out of your kitchen waste

All your leftovers in the kitchen sink can be used as compost for your plants. Things like tea bags, leaves, egg shells, banana peels, newspapers and scrap papers can all be used to make homemade compost.
