There are many steps you can take towards a more sustainable lifestyle and and for using sustainable energy this is something I have been pondering on for a while and wondering if it’s achievable for us. There are many ways this can be achieved some of which I will highlight in this post. You can also check Google for ideas on how to be more sustainable and check for sustainable energy sites to use.
Another thing you should be aware of are businesses you use or products you buy. If you are going to take steps towards a more sustainable lifestyle then it’s so important that you are buying sustainable products and also buying from businesses that practice sustainability too. This is really important to ensure you are putting your all in to it.
It’s also a good idea to make sure that everyone in your family are also aware of sustainability. What it means and how to practice it too. There are loads of easy ways to do this with your family and loads of info online too. It’s so much easier these days to be sustainable and follow this kind of lifestyle.
The way you use energy and the type of energy you use it really important. There are so many different ways you can use sustainable energy like renewable energy, solar panels and wind farms etc.
This is one way that we can take steps towards a more sustainable living. There are now charging stations available out and about and you can even get your own charging stations are available for residential areas and for business locations making it so convenient if you are ready to take the step to an electric car. They are also very reasonable now to own which is great.
Enjoying nature and the simple life
To a certain extent we are already doing this as we love the outdoors and exploring. You can achieve this by taking forest walks and nature trails. We also like to go up to the mountain and set up a day camp and just explore the area with a picnic. The children get so much enrichment from it and really enjoy the outdoor education. I love how much the ankle biters know so much about nature and wildlife.
Owning your own business and being sustainable
If you own your own business you need to ensure that you are taking steps to being sustainable. You also need to ensure that your are sticking to sustainability laws. You could check make an appointment with an attorney like Douglas Healy.
Recycling items you no longer need or buying items people no longer need
We have regular clear outs of toys , clothes , furniture etc that we no longer use. We either go to the recycling centre or the charity shops. I also give things to friends and family to re-use. I’m a big fan of vintage items so love a good rummage in a charity shop or car boot sale. I love the idea of passing the little ones toys on to charity and teaching them that it is good to give them to other children who may love playing with them. At ages two and three we are already introducing the sustainable lifestyle to them.
