Years ago I decided I wanted to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. I thought it was going to be super hard but we’d start small and work our way up. Little did I know just how easy some changes were. Today I’m sharing 4 Easy Ways To Live A More Eco-Friendly Lifestyle.
4 Easy Ways To Live A More Eco-Friendly Lifestyle
There are many reasons one should try to be more eco-friendly but the most obvious to me is so we leave the earth in better shape than we found it. As I said, it’s really so simple to make a few changes to your lifestyle and you soon they’ll become routine and won’t want to go back to how you used to live.
I think it goes without saying but using less paper products and recycle those you do use will help our planet immensely. Use the notepad feature on your phone for a grocery list, don’t print emails if it’s not necessary, use paperless billing options if it’s offered (which most places actually give you a discount for going that route). Recycling is simple and definitely one of the easiest ways you can help our planet.
If you have a baby one thing you cannot live without is diapers. But so many diapers overflow our landfills on a daily basis and with them taking over 500 to decompose, that’s just not good for any environment. Plus, did you know that you are technically supposed to dump solid waste before throwing a disposable diaper away? One thing you can do is use cloth diapers. Using cloth diapers could save around $1,860 from birth to potty learning. Baby wears them then you wash them. It’s that simple. We’ve used cloth diapers with 2 of the 3 kids and I could not imagine having to buy disposable diapers again. There’s also reusable swim diapers which are just as environmentally friendly and adorable!
Yes, there really is such a thing! We can’t really avoid washing our clothes so why not help the planet while you’re doing it? NEW! Tide purclean is the first bio-based detergent with the trusted cleaning power of Tide. It’s 65% bio-based but with the same cleaning power you expect from Tide.
Shopping at Target, I found Tide purclean on an end-cap and with the $1.00 off neckhanger coupon, I knew I just had to try it. The breakthrough product has a stain-fighting power that is out of this world too. I’m sure we’re all familiar with how a toddler eats, right? It’s not pretty but Tide purclean does an amazing job of getting everything out of my son’s clothes the first time. Of course, I had to do the sniff test and the Honey Lavender test passed the test from all family members.

Gone are the days of wasting hours cutting coupons (remember, we’re wanting to save paper!). Lots of stores accept coupons from your phone and there are many apps that are specifically for coupons. One I have used for years is the Target Cartwheel app. While shopping for Tide purclean I scanned the barcode on the product and up popped a 5% off savings. You can either search the app or use the in-app scanner to literally scan each bar code on the items you have in your shopping cart. If there is a savings for that item it comes up and you click Add.
