Use “Green” Search Engines instead of classic search engines (e.g. Google, Bing, Yahoo,…). If you feel overwhelmed by the thousand different search results returned by a normal search engine such as Google, Bing or Yahoo, you might want to have a look at search engines like Ecosearch, GoodSearch, GoodTree, Ecosia,… Besides referring to more sustainable and greener websites, some of them even plant a tree for every search request entered.
Buy your clothing in second hand stores or rent them if you have a special occasion. Circular fashion is the new kid on the block! It is not only good for the planet, it also allows you to be more creative and daring when choosing clothes while saving money!
Quit buying bottled water. Instead, get a water bottle that you can refill. Bottled water wastes fossil fuels in both production and transport, and the plastic bottles continue to end up in our landfills, while the plastic-making process requires over two gallons of water for the purification process.
Take the stairs! This also works as a booty workout ;-).
Don’t use plastic bags. Always take your own bags, cups, boxes, etc… for groceries so you can buy in bulk.
Shop locally and seasonally especially when it comes to fruits and veggies
If you’re hosting a party and you want your guests’ drinks to look good, use washable metal straws instead of disposable plastic straws.
Use solar energy charges for your smartphones and tablets.
Plant a tree with someone!
And of course… Share a scooter! (or a car, or a bike 🙂 )
