Climate change and doing what we can to save the planet are at the forefront of many of our decisions these days. We all want to do our part in helping the environment, and an eco-lifestyle is a great way to do that. But making such an essential change in how we live can initially seem overwhelming. So what is a true eco-friendly lifestyle, and how do you know if you're doing it correctly?
An eco-lifestyle consists of living in an environmentally conscious way. It's all about making small changes in your daily life that will have a positive impact on our planet collectively. Actions for living an environmentally friendly lifestyle include:
- Reducing energy and water consumption.
- Choosing eco-lifestyle products.
- Opting for greener transportation methods.
These are just a few ways you can live more planet-friendly!
For those just starting on their journey to greener pastures (and a greener planet), swapping out plastic or single-use products for eco-lifestyle alternatives is a simple-yet-powerful first step. Urban Ethos stocks a vast range of reusable household and lifestyle products for you to integrate into your everyday life. Browse the full range of environmentally friendly products today.
Urban Ethos Eco-Lifestyle Products
Reusable Water Bottles
One of the simplest products you can switch out to start living more sustainably is your single-use plastic water bottle. And there's no better way to do that than with the SUGA Water Bottle from HIP. Made from sugarcane stalks that, if not transformed into this beautifully versatile water bottle, would have been discarded as waste. Crafted from renewable materials, you can use this bottle again and again. With its helpful carry handle, this gem may just become your new emotional support water bottle.
Reusable Coffee Cups
Another simple switch you can make is to opt for a reusable coffee cup instead of purchasing single-use, disposable cups with your morning coffee. Urban Ethos stocks the MOKA Reusable Coffee Cup, which comes in various colours with an easy sip-through lid and textured base for easy gripping. If you're not a morning person and the 350ml size isn't large enough for you, don't worry. MOKA's 475ml large coffee cup will get you through the morning.
Soap is an everyday essential. We need it to keep clean, hygienic, and eradicate potentially harmful bacteria. Unfortunately, while it's killing germs on our hands, the plastic bottles it comes in are killing the environment. Even when we try to be more environmentally friendly by purchasing refill bottles, plastic waste is still seemingly unavoidable. Our Eco Hand Soap Tablets fix this dilemma! Simply fill your soap bottle with water, drop the tablet in and let it dissolve, then it's ready to go. And if you still need the soap bottle, we've got one that will last you a lifetime.
It's no secret that disposable plastic containers are a nightmare for the environment. Not only do they take hundreds of years to decompose, but they also release harmful toxins into our water and soil when they do eventually break down. Our storage bundles are the perfect starting point for building your reusable container collection! You'll store all your food in these multi-use containers that are made from ocean plastics, are completely airtight, and come in multiple sizes.
