COVID-19 Transformation: 5 Ways to Live an Eco-Friendly Lifestyle

With the spread of corona virus, our lives have gone head over heels. And therefore, people have started living a simple life, which has led to a new transformation. It has made many of you realise the importance of issues you were overlooking till now. And that’s living an environmentally-friendly life.

Finally, you must have learned that our planet is not a resource that will serve you forever. It’s payback time, friends. So, let’s join hands to live a simple life to save the planet. Here are five ways that would help you to live an eco-friendly lifestyle.

1. Go organic:

Not surprisingly, the debate over organic vs. conventional farming is polarised. With fewer chemicals and quick spread of the current virus, the need for organic food has escalated. It is usually fresher as it doesn’t contain preservatives to make it last longer.

Therefore, you can choose healthy, local, organic, low impact, and seasonal diets for green living. Also, curb your food waste. Apart from this, the demand for organic food will increase to the max when you would prefer to consume it. So, support organic farming and organically grown products.

2. Take sustainable transport:

The use of low carbon transport mechanisms is an ideal way to live an eco-friendly lifestyle. It heightens the need to increase sustainable transport services. Moreover, it’s less air polluting, so it keeps the air cleaner, reducing the diseases. Along with this, such transportation allows you to save money (that too in times of rising fuel prices).

The best available options include walking, cycling, or electric trains and cars. Once you start with this transformation, you’ll find it as the best alternative for high emission vehicles.

3. Create an exercise program:

For most of you, getting in a good workout is hard enough. And therefore, improving the environment and your health, both seem difficult. But there are easy ways with which you can create an eco-friendly exercise program without too much trouble. Yoga, recycling without gear, outdoor activities are some of the keys to achieve the best of both worlds.

The best part of exercising is that your body gets as many perks as the environment. Your body gets enough strength to defeat all the viruses around you while nature becomes greener.

4. Avoid pollution during cleaning:

Many of you still might be using highly-perfumed and harmful detergents instead of soap and water for cleaning purposes. You need to realise how these detergents pollute water, soil, environment as well as your health during cleaning. You can use white vinegar and baking soda or plain soap as alternatives to harmful bleach.

Also, the weekly usage of bleach can increase the risk of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Moreover, with the uncontrolled corona virus, some experts suggest using diluted bleach to clean hard surfaces. You can work like this by ventilating your room if you don’t trust soap and water. Also, make sure you don’t overdo it and try to restrict its contamination with your water supplies.

5. Add green elements to your home:

Renovating your home with a green perspective will be an added benefit for our environment. Therefore, invest in green materials and systems, and over time you’d get a financial impact too. A few options worth considering are buying energy-efficient appliances, installing solar panels, and creating your garden. Additionally, these 5 eco-friendly insulation materials will keep your home refreshing and warm.

If you’re looking to give your home a green makeover, but the budget is your constraint, then choose recycled pieces. No matter you use them as is or upcycle, they would give your home a new aesthetic look.

The bottom line:

The corona virus is giving us the warning to improve our health, quality of life, and the health of our planet. Many climate experts also said that escalating pollution could hit us hard in the face. So, follow the above ways and lead a lifestyle equivalent to our eco-system instead of reverting to our old days. It may look tough in the beginning, but with time, you will get habituated to it.

The only key to all these problems lies in global transformation – from energy to agriculture, health to education, and housing to lifestyle.
