The Path to Sustainable Living
Sustainability isn’t just a checklist of activities to complete. If you’re looking to live a more sustainable lifestyle, you need to dig deep and make meaningful choices that will change your life.
At Bona, we’re always working to be more sustainable and have been doing that for decades. We know that truly effective lifestyle changes don’t happen overnight. Eco-friendly changes are possible and open a path to sustainable living. A sustainable lifestyle can be had by many if we commit to small changes that add up. Here are some tips to help get you on your path to green living.
Analyze your lifestyle.
Before you start choosing how you’ll be more sustainable, look at your current habits and see where you can make more earth-friendly changes. Consider things like energy consumption, eating habits, transportation and water use. Take stock of your habits and find ways you can start being more efficient in your consumption.
Simplify your space.
Another way to live more sustainably is to get rid of things in your home that you don’t use anymore. Let’s face it: we all have at least a couple of things that we no longer use or love as much as we used to. Take these items and sell them, donate them and give them a new life. After you’ve decluttered, you’ll be better suited to track how much you think you need vs. how much you actually use.
Make small changes.
Growing your own vegetables, buying food from local sources or staying away from plastic bags at the grocery store are all easy changes to make small steps towards a more sustainable lifestyle. Small changes in energy consumption can make a big difference as well. Making sure unused appliances are turned off and unplugged while not in use and switching to more energy efficient LED lighting can help save money as well.
Use your purchasing power.
Choose to let your money make a statement and choose products that are made by ethical, socially minded sources. Fair-trade, organic, local, or certified environmentally safe products are excellent ways to make active choices in the effort to be more eco-friendly.
