The benefits of Sustainable Products for the
is becoming critical for our future generations and the protection of our
environment that we are eco-friendly and ethical in the products we use in our
day to day life.
sustainable products in our daily lives promotes green living which helps to
conserve energy and preserve our environment preventing air, water and noise
So, how can you become more
focused on not harming the environment and becoming aware of how different
choices affect the environment, is the best place to start.
sustainable products rather than products that are not ethically created and
reusable will reduce the impact on the environment and preserve the natural
resources. Products that are recyclable and sustainable will stop filling up
the landfills which are an unsustainable form of waste management.
Geographic estimated that the amount of plastic bags that enter our
oceans every year is over eight million tonnes. This is a staggering figure and
should encourage people from all walks of life to do our bit to eliminate
single-use plastic bags because they are the major contributor to this massive
amount of plastic that is polluting our planet.
How to add sustainable products to
your daily life
place to start your eco-friendly journey is in your children’s
lunchboxes. Being conscious of what you pack and having no plastic
in lunch boxes will help to stop polluting the environment. There is a global
community of schools, colleges and universities working to reduce plastic waste
and join the Plastic Free
Schools program which encourages education, collaboration,
investigation and action to help find solutions to find plastic-free
alternatives. There are plenty of affordable ways to pack a waste-free
lunchbox, and keep NZ beautiful!
great way to add some sustainable products to your family’s life is wrapping
your child’s or family members sandwiches in a reusable
sandwich wrap. These wraps are designed to fit a sandwich, bun, roll
or bagel and have a velcro closure that is adjustable. They are hygienic with a
food grade film which is waterproof and can be wiped clean or put in a washing
machine. There are plenty of cool colours and fun designs available to add a
little ethical element to your daily lunch.
a reusable coffee cup
to take with you when you next grab a coffee at your local cafe will also
eliminate waste and products in the landfill. There are an estimated 2.8
billion takeaway cups and lids put into landfill every year. You can help to
reduce this use of disposable coffee cups by bringing your own cup. With plenty
of different sizes and designs available, you are sure to find the perfect cup
to enjoy your morning brew and at the same time doing your bit for the
straws are another huge part of the landfill dilemma, globally 360 tonnes of
plastic straws are thrown away daily! Be eco-friendly and say no to straws when
you are offered one in a restaurant, cafe or takeaway store. There are
fantastic alternatives available which are stainless
steel drinking straws which are stylish and cool but best of all
help the environment as well.
