A Green Plan & Environmentally-Friendly Products
Think for a minute of what you do to maintain your health. You eat your veggies. You do an activity you enjoy. You go to the doctor. The benefits of consistent effort over time can’t be underestimated. This is how we make change, get what we want, and maintain our health. With a little Green Planning, our environment will also benefit from consistent effort. Quite simply, regularly supporting environmentally-friendly products and business can make a big difference over time.
Make a Green Plan: Buy Environmentally-Friendly Products
When a problem is big and overwhelming, like climate change, we tend to try to think of big answers. Big answers are great, but often they’re like wishing you’d win the lottery to meet your financial goals. The real work, the achievable plan, is almost always accomplished in small steps taken every day. We have a Fitness Plan and a Financial Plan, so why not a Green Plan?
Here are three easy Green Plan steps for daily living:
- Combine errands to use less gasoline
- Bring your own bags to make less plastic waste
- Buy environmentally-friendly products and support corporate green
Don’t just look for the recycle sign on packaging. Look at ingredients, sourcing and manufacturing locations, and company mission. Also, don’t believe everything you read on the packaging. Use your phone while shopping to make responsible consumer choices.
Environmentally-Friendly Products Weren’t Always a Thing
Sometimes the news seems bleak about corporate greed, climate change, and failing regulations. However, consider the progress we’ve made in terms of consistent effort. Year over year more environmentally-friendly products and socially conscious companies enter the marketplace.
More and more consumers are aware of what they’re buying and the impact their purchases make on the world. Consumers are considering the use of raw materials, the locations of manufacturing, the disposal of packaging, and the allocation business of profits.
Make a Difference with Environmentally-Friendly Products
Searching for ways to make a difference can be overwhelming when what you care about is as huge as “the environment.” But, like any big project, helping protect the environment becomes manageable if you break the solutions down into action items.
Can you imagine being a conscious consumer for the rest of your life? Buying environmentally-friendly products, using less gas, eating local foods, and shopping with your own bags are things you can do every day.
Just like eating veggies adds up to a healthy body, small, consistent actions can improve the health of our planet. You can feel encouraged that making good choices for the environment over time will be met with success.
