Did you know that some of the smallest decisions that you make on a daily basis can have a huge impact on the environment? It’s true. From how much water we use to the cars we drive, it all leaves an environmental footprint. But what if you want to live more sustainably, and reduce the impact of that footprint? Here are a few ways to get started:
According to the EPA, roughly 40% of all the energy used in the United States comes from our homes and offices. As such, the energy you waste at home will have some of the biggest impacts on the environment. Thankfully, you can take steps to reduce home energy waste by doing any of the following:
As we all know, vehicles are a major source of air pollution, and a contributing factor to rising CO2 levels. The less we rely on our cars, then, the better off we’ll be. However, some towns or cities are extremely car dependent. If that’s the case, consider switching to an electric or hybrid car to reduce your carbon footprint.
We don’t think about how our old cellphones, clothes, or furniture affect our environment, but they often leave a big impact. These items often end up in landfills, further polluting our environment. A great way to avoid this is to recycle or donate these items when you no longer need them.
Many of our everyday products have plastics, chemicals, and other materials that can harm our environment. Plastic bags, cleaning products, and many food products often rely on these materials. In fact, even sunglasses are made up of plastic. While you can’t stop people from making these items, you can stop yourself from using them by switching to eco-friendly alternatives.
At ShadeTree Sunglasses, our goal is to provide people with fashionable, cost-effective, and eco-friendly options for their sunglasses. That’s why we offer a wide variety of wooden sunglasses for you to choose from. So, feel free to look through our inventory or contact us with any questions or concerns!
