Sustainable swaps to live a greener life and be more eco-friendly.

Becoming eco-friendly is increasingly more common as we’re starting to become more aware of the negative implications that our daily routines have on the planet. Like it or not, Global Warming is a thing and it’s not going to get any better unless we do something about it. If you’re looking to live a greener life but unsure where to start, we’ve done the hard work of putting together some easy sustainable swaps you can start introducing into your lifestyle.

Ditch your plastic toothbrush

Every year, 30 million toothbrushes are thrown away in Australia and end up in the ocean or landfill. If you’re still using a plastic toothbrush, make the swap to bamboo to help reduce plastic waste. Thinc Eco, has designed the perfect alternative, they’re biodegradable Bamboo Toothbrushes are home compostable and will help you keep your teeth squeaky clean!

Cut down on everyday plastics 

Plastic is not only bad for the environment but is also harmful to our health. Did you know every piece of plastic ever made still exists today? There are countless ways you can reduce plastic waste, an easy trick to reducing plastic is by eliminating the use of plastic produce bags that most supermarkets provide. Instead, make the switch to Thinc Eco’s Reusable Cotton Produce Bags. 

Plastic isn’t only harmful to our planet but it also carries nasty chemicals that end up in the food we eat. When packing leftovers in the fridge or mindlessly buying a plastic-packaged snack, think about the implications it has on the environment and the chemicals they carry. A couple of great substitutes would be bamboo lunchboxes, to store your leftovers, or reusable silicone ziplock bags for healthy snacks on the go or to store your cosmetics. 

DIY cleaning products 

Chemical cleaning products can be extremely harmful to our environment and they can also put a dent in the wallet. Most of them are packed with ingredients we can’t even pronounce. There are plenty of natural DIY recipes you can make yourself. Check out this handy all-purpose spray recipe, you should have all the ingredients.

Walk more, drive less

This is an easy change you can make today. By walking more and using your car less, you’ll reduce your carbon footprint as well as getting some daily steps in, plus it will save you a ton of money, so it’s win-win!

Visit your local market

A great way to live a greener lifestyle, and trust us, you’ll feel great for doing it, is shopping locally. Spending a Saturday or Sunday morning at your local produce market is a feel-good activity and will also support local farmers. Buying from a mass-produced grocery store means that the food has to travel more to reach you, so buying locally will reduce carbon footprint as the food doesn’t need to travel as far. Just don’t forget your reusable produce bags and a shopping bag.
