Creating a sustainable lifestyle takes a lifelong commitment – to learning, experimenting, exploring, committing to increasingly sustainable practices. If your day-to-day actions are more environmentally-friendly you not only help the environment, but you can benefit financially, physically and mentally as well. For example, getting rid of toxic chemicals, plastics in your home and using natural products inside the living space will have a more positive impact on your indoor air quality.
Previously there was this slogan in sustainable industry - Reduce + Reuse + Recycle. Now Compost has been added to this which makes it really sustainable. Below are some of the products that show real path towards sustainability.
Plastic consumptione each year:
''Plastic'' the wonder material that we use for everything. Our addiction to cheap, plastic products and packaging, and a comprehensive global failure to steward these materials properly. Each year, an estimated 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide. That comes out to over one million per minute. A recent study revealed that 8 million tons of plastic waste flows into our oceans each year, enough to cover every foot of coastline in the world.
Clay pot cooking seems to be all the rage these days. Earthenware pots are relatively inexpensive and beautiful to look at, as evidenced by the lovely products featured at clay pot specialty shops. They have a number of unique properties that distinguish them from metal pots. There are many people who absolutely love cooking with clay pots. One reason is for the apparent health benefits they give.
BENEFITS OF TERRACOTTA COOKING:
The first is that clay is porous. This means that moisture and heat circulate through the pot during cooking.The most unique thing about clay pot cooking is that you soak the pot in water before using it. Then, while cooking, the pot gradually releases stream. This cooks your food in a particularly moist way, and it means you can use less liquids and oils when cooking. Clay pots are also slightly alkaline, which will reduce the acidity of foods (such as tomato sauce) you make in it.
The word “compostableware” is becoming increasingly common. Whether it’s your to go box, or the lidded soup bowl, or the bio plastic cups for your drinks. And yet, something’s not quite right. That soup bowl starts to bend. The to go box gets soggy. The cup is made from corn, which, GMO or not, is unsustainable and responsible for many issues both agricultural and economic in our society today.
And that’s just the beginning.
