Living life unsustainably makes the world and the quality of our life suffer. If we switched to eco-friendly products, we’d live longer and have a better chance of avoiding diseases. Additionally, eco-friendly products help with: the conservation of energy, material and water, the improvement of our environment and mental health, and low maintenance instead of high maintenance. We’d conserve energy by using solar panels to generate energy from the sun instead of using fossil fuels. We’d conserve materials by using quality non-harmful ones. We’d conserve water by using more water-saving techniques to keep the environment healthy. We’d improve our own environments and mental health by diminishing our stress and by taking in the fresh air and natural light to enhance our quality of life. Finally, building eco-friendly buildings would require less maintenance because there would be a decrease in operation. For example, building buildings with big windows to promote natural light instead of wasting energy promoting artificial light. Seems like nothing but an abundance of goods things to me….
I hope by now I’ve at least made you consider a sustainable lifestyle, but if I haven’t, hopefully these brands do….
