10 eco-goals for a more sustainable and healthier 2022
Once again, the time has come to draw up the list, whether written or just mental, of good intentions for the coming year. Let yourself be inspired by our 10 eco-goals for 2022!
- Invest in better quality clothing items
Better quality fabric is often a synonym for durability and compatibility with your skin!
- Support brands and labels that are ethical and environmentally conscious
- Grow your own herbs, fruit, and vegetables
Even if it’s just a few pots around the house, it all helps! One of the most obvious advantages is that you can control which fertilisers and pesticides to use and, above all, you can use the best time to harvest the fruits of your labour.
- Practice minimalism
Think twice before shopping, buy less and better. Try to use everything you own to its maximum purpose, including waste materials, which you should recycle.
- Find toys made from natural fibres
Firstly, toys made of natural materials are safe, even when your child puts them in his or her mouth. What's more, they are sustainable (wooden ones are even biodegradable!) and, because they are more minimalist, they help your child develop his or her imagination.
- Try to buy local food and to consume less animal products
Buying locally reduces the emissions associated with transporting food, and reducing the consumption of animal products has benefits for both your own health and the welfare of the animals as well as the environment.
For example, use reusable cotton pads for removing your makeup or stainless-steel drink bottles
- If you do need to buy new appliances, clothes, toys, look second hand first
For example, buy from second hand shops or from sustainable clothing outlets, to give value to pre-loved garments and to those from past collections.
- Unplug devices when not in use
Most electronic devices consume electricity even when turned off. It is best to unplug appliances when not in use.
- Looking for a sustainable birthday gift for your loved ones? Plant a tree!
Treedom is the most popular platform, but there are also others that can meet all your needs.
