5 Easy Steps to a Sustainable Life

Making steps towards a sustainable life empowers you to take charge of the things that are withing your control. Green Living is a choice we can all choose right now.

 

  1. Food waste is the world’s biggest contributor to landfill. There are many ways you can ´garden´ your way out of this scenario, such as growing your own leafy greens and salad veg – some of the most perishable items in your fridge. Consider a Vegepod or starting a vegie patch and start reducing those food miles too. Setting up a worm farm like our Hungry Bins will deal with any other food waste AND make great fertiliser out of the worm castings and wee in the process. Autumn is the perfect time to start a compost too. Read our Time to Go Green

 

  1. Habitat creation is one way we can all contribute to the well being of our fauna. Making safe havens at home by introducing water bowls for hydration, native flowers for nectar, grasses for seed and some dense, low shrubbery for shelter, as well as saving trees – especially those that have hollows, are key.  You can plant your way to animal paradise and let them do the insect patrol.

 

  1. Chemical warfare should not be enlisted for home gardens. Surely we can out smart bugs!  Come and talk to us about eco-friendly options to protect your plants and stay one step ahead of any problems with clever practice.  If you’re wanting to learn more about how to detox your garden, check out our Green Clean blog

 

  1. Just like outside, indoors can be keptsmicko with eco alternatives like essential oils, vinegar and baking powder. For centuries we used these to clean, growing herbs to help purify and cleanse our surroundings.  Join us for a workshop  to learn more or check out our clean your house

 

  1. While you’re inside, fill your home with plants and let them do the hard work removing toxins from the air. Plants are the ultimate air conditioners AND feel good companions, nurturing your well-being and your health.  To find out which plants work the best, check out our Breathe Easier
