In today’s world, taking steps to protect our environment has become more important than ever. And the truth is, living an eco-friendly lifestyle is much easier than you might think!
Here at Inspire Me Naturally, we are big believers in reducing waste and minimising our carbon footprint on the earth. One of the best places to start? By making a few simple changes at home, and looking for eco-friendly alternatives where possible to some of our most commonly used products.
If you’re currently looking to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle, keep reading for 5 ways to get started.
Swap plastic bags for reusable produce bags
Did you know that an estimated 3.76 billion plastic bags are contributed to landfill each year in Australia? With many Australian supermarkets putting a ban on plastic bags from the 1st of July, there has never been a better time to make the switch to reusable alternatives.
Our reusable cotton produce bags are not only environmentally friendly, but also help your goods stay fresh for longer. We also love our convenient Trolley Buddy shopping bags, made from recycled materials and including a thermal insulation pocket to keep your groceries cool!
Make the switch to reusable coffee pods
Australians use billions of coffee pods daily, with the traditional aluminium and plastic pods taking anywhere between 150-500 years to break down in landfill.
One way to help reduce this waste is to make the switch to reusable coffee pods instead. Our reusable coffee capsules are designed for lifetime use, allowing you to enjoy your morning brew each day without contributing to landfill.
Bamboo is one of the most sustainable materials on the planet, and these days there are so many great eco-friendly bamboo products available for some of our most common household items.
Use a travel cup
Australians throw out over 3 billion coffee cups and lids each year, making them one of the biggest contributors to landfill.
With the war on waste becoming more important than ever, reusable travel cups are now being embraced as a smarter, eco-friendly alternative. You’ll also find most cafes offer discounted coffee pricing in return. Our bamboo eco travel cups are made with natural bamboo fibre and are environmentally responsible & reusable.
Say no to bottled water
Although it may seem convenient to buy plastic bottles of water on the go, it’s much friendlier on the environment (and your wallet!) to fill up a reusable drink bottle from home for everyday use. BPA-free or stainless steel reusable drink bottles are a better alternative for regular use, and are also free from harmful plastics.
