Nature has provided us with every single thing that we need in our lives and would ever need for countless more years. Now, switching sides, think of what we have done for nature? The weighing scale does tip away from you. Even so, it’s still not late to do your small part in making the earth greener again and improving your lifestyle while you’re at it to have an eco friendly life. Sounds good? Dive in.
The first major step you need to take is to stop using and receiving plastic products and switch to much safer and environmentally friendly products like the ones Leaf Basket provides. Providing the same durability and functionality of metal or ceramic dinnerware while still saving the planet. All this and it still looks beautiful to look at and becomes a part of eco friendly life. Other plastic products used on a daily basis like carrying bags can be replaced with jute or paper bags or simply just reuse the bags that you already have and can’t get rid of.
When was the last time you bathed in the mild heat of the rising sun or felt the soft breeze tickle your skin?
Cut down on air conditioners or fans and open those windows and watch as the bright sunshine lights up your house and the breeze fill your room with cool, fresh air. After all, the fresh air from nature is way better than the recycled oxygen deprived air from the AC.
Plant as many trees as you can. Be it a little mango tree sapling in your garden or a small aloe vera plant on your terrace, just go ahead and do it. One way or the other, you’re still going to be benefitted from it on the longer run.

Build a compost pit. All it takes is a shovel and some hard work. Looking from a brighter prospect, you can feel the soil under your naked feet while sweating into the same soil, thus giving a literal meaning to the idiom “with blood and sweat”. The compost pit is a great way to dispose of biodegradable waste and the soil can be eventually used as a natural fertilizer.
Say no to paper receipts. While this has been implemented almost in all industries that used to feed on paper at a crazy rate, it still lingers among the small-scale industries. Imagine the number of trees that would be saved if you rejected paper receipts forever, which would instantly reduce the amount of time taken for the earth to recover from its current state. Also, it adds to the feeling of pride upon oneself for being a part of saving the planet.
Countless other steps can be taken to live in an eco friendly manner and uplift your eco friendly life which majorly includes living by the mantra of the 3 Rs’. Reuse, Reduce and Recycle.
