I'm kind of in a whirlwind this spring. I feel like so many things are changing! Maybe not on the surface, but definitely internally. I'm sifting through a lot of personal changes right now, and it's been interesting, to say the least.
Certainly interesting have been all the different emotions that come with doing a 30 Day Minimalism Challenge. I can't necessarily say all these things I'm feeling are stemming from a simple list of tasks, and I don't mean to be melodramatic, but the challenge has stirred some momentum in me to evaluate different areas of my life, including what kinds of things I can do to live a more "green" lifestyle.
Since the internet is full of algorithms to fill your feed with more of what you've already been looking at/buying/searching for, my Pinterest feed has been something of a rabbit hole of never-ending ways to go green, shop ethically, and pursue minimalism.
It's only fueling my fire!
Today I wanted to share some of those ideas that have been circulating in my feed. Here are 25 Ways to Go Green.
14. Turn off the lights and open a window instead
15. Use LED bulbs
16. Upcycle or donate rather than throwing things out (if in decent condition)
17. Switch to cloth diapers
18. Cook in batches and meal prep
19. Take shorter showers
20. Make your own cleaning products (see Pins below!)
21. Make your own shampoo
22. Wrap gifts in newspaper or recycled paper rather than wrapping paper
23. Trade yard tools with neighbors and friends
24. Use glass containers rather than plastic
25. Take the stairs
While some of these may not apply to me (like cloth diapers), I'll certainly be adding a handful to my own habits.
What are some ways you're going green? I'd love to hear!
