Tips to Carbon-Savvy Living in the 21st Century

Hello, friends, and happy Saturday! This week, I’m excited to share a couple of ways that you can reduce your carbon footprint. A carbon footprint is simply how much carbon dioxide is emitted into the atmosphere because of the amount of fossil fuels a person uses every day. Saving our beautiful, green planet is worth making a couple of small changes that you’ll hardly even think about once you start doing them. Here are a few product changes you can make to become more sustainable:

Reusable Coffee Cups

Reusable cups are probably the first move I made toward living more sustainably. Most of these cups have insulating properties, they’re easy to grip, they come with their own reusable straws, and some even compact down into a fraction of their original size. You can find any cup to your taste on Amazon for an affordable price! Note: I recommend Stojo cups!

Compostable Phone Case

Buy a compostable phone case! Pela is an incredible, environmentally friendly brand based in Canada, and they make cases for all types of phones. The best part about these cases is that once you’re done with them, you can throw them in with your composting trash, and they will be gone in approximately two weeks!

Reusable Shopping Bags

This is a simple one, guys! If you keep your reusable shopping bags in your car you’re less likely to forget them when you get to the store. This is one of the easiest ways to reduce your single-use plastic usage.

Thrift, Thrift, Thrift

Buying secondhand clothes is a great way to avoid fast fashion. I love shopping for vintage clothes. It’s the easiest way to find beautiful designer pieces for a steal!
