How to adopt a sustainable lifestyle

How to adopt a sustainable lifestyle

Sustainability can be defined by the avoidance of the depletion of natural resources to maintain an ecological balance.

Yes, this definition is very wide and many could argue what is sustainable and what is not. To make it simple, as it is a subjective definition, we will try to explain our vision of sustainability.

Make sure you know what you are buying

The first thing that comes to our mind when we think about sustainability is consumption. Getting to know how and when the products you buy is a very important step. To do so, you can:

  • Do some quick research on the company on their approach to sustainability on neutral websites. A great source is CSR Hub, which allows you to search for a company to know its sustainability rating.
  • Lookup the particular materials used by the item you buy to make sure it’s produced without harm, dangerous materials, or child labour

Reuse and repair items

In our fast-paced world, people tend to throw away and replace rather than reuse and repair. This is one of the biggest issues we are facing. When we throw away stuff and buy brand new items, there are several problems:

  • The items we throw away might be useful for someone else
  • The items we throw away cause pollution as it needs to be treated by waste management – and only a tiny fraction is actually recyclable
  • When we buy new items to replace our preloved ones, we increase the need for production of these items – and therefore pollution

There are a few places and websites that allow you to repair your items such as:

Do not throw it away, Partage it!

 

If you do not need or want any item anymore and it is still functionning, someone else will be happy to have it.

By giving your item a second life, you prevent the creation of additional waste and production of another item.

On Partage, you can give a second life to your unwanted item and get rewarded.

Use less energy

One of the most important tips to be more sustainable is to use less energy in general. There are numerous ways you can save energy (and money) by turning off unused appliances, turning off your Wi-Fi box when you are out of your house is a good example of what you could do in addition to the obvious steps.

Go paperless

In our modern world, we need less and less paper in our every day lives. If you still receive paper version of your bills, bank statements and others, going paperless will save tons of paper in a year.

Don’t waste food

 

Food waste is one of the biggest issues in our world. Food is wasted at the source (by producers) and at the destination (by us – customers).

There is some progress being made on the producer side. Even if it’s taking quite a long time. But there is something we can our on our end prevent it from happening. You can for example:

  • Reuse your old break for crouton
  • Shop by using the app TooGoodToGo – it will allow you to prevent waste of food by shops and you will save money at the same time
  • Cook stir fries when vegetables are about to go off
  • Freeze your meat if you are not sure you will eat it before expiration

Wear sustainable clothing

Sustainable fashion was very exclusive a while ago. This is not the case anymore. You can also find sustainable clothing deals on our Special offers area.
