4 trendy ways to go eco friendly in 2020

The sad and harsh truth about today’s society is that we’re destroying our beautiful planet. We’re now living in 2020, and now is the best time to begin making changes to help live a more eco-friendly life, which, in turn, will help slow down the deterioration of the earth. While you may not be able to make catastrophic changes to the planet alone, every little effort you make will make a difference. Not sure where to start? Here are some trendy and effective ways to go eco-friendly in 2020.

Switch to vegan meals at least once a week

Veganism is about much more than not eating anything that comes from animals – it’s a lifestyle choice. Being a dedicated vegan means refusing to use anything harmful to the environment in any way. Don’t worry; nobody is forcing you to become a devout vegan; we’re merely suggesting to sub in a vegan meal once a week to reduce damage to the environment. There are many delicious and fulfilling vegan meal ideas out there, so don’t be afraid to experiment!

Ditch the car as often as possible

We all know how harmful cars are to the environment, yet we continue to use them to commute around day in and day out. Consider ditching the use of your car now and then and switching it up. You could try alternative methods of transport such as:

  • Public transport is easy and relatively cheap to use. 
  • Electric bicycles are much better for the environment and reasonably cheap to run compared to a regular bicycle. The most maintenance you’ll probably encounter is replacing the electric bike batteries now and then!
  • Walking is eco-friendly, completely free, and great for your health!
  • Carpooling dramatically reduces the number of cars on the road. Why not set up a carpool at work?

Replace harmful products with eco-friendly ones

Did you know that the products we use to clean our homes are damaging the environment? There are plenty of eco-friendly cleaning products available in stores these days, so why not replace your harmful chemicals for something that’s kinder to the planet (and your health too, may we add!). Products such as Method are exceptionally environmentally friendly and still provide that wonderful clean smell around your home!

Only use reusable items.

Switching from plastic to reusable items will significantly lower the amount of plastic waste you produce each year and save you money at the same time! Here are some examples of reusable items you could switch out at home:

It would help if you also considered reusing plastic boxes and tubs you accumulate over time rather than throwing them away. They can be great for storing pre-made meals in the freezer or even help keep your fridge that little bit tidier!

Being eco-friendly doesn’t have to be difficult, and with a few small changes, you could massively help the planet too!
