Adopting a sustainable lifestyle offers numerous benefits, from reducing waste to preserving the world’s remaining ecosystems.
If you want to live more sustainably, it often begins by making informed decisions about what and how you consume, and from there, taking small steps to limit your consumption or choosing planet-friendly alternatives.
Thankfully, there are a broad range of sustainable goods—from food products to cosmetics—that fit the bill (without “greenwashing”). There are certain characteristics that make items sustainable, including the materials used to make them and the manufacturing process themselves.
Living sustainably also means being mindful of how your everyday habits affect your carbon footprint. How you travel, shop, and eat, and whether you recycle, can all reduce your footprint and your overall impact on the planet.
