There are many benefits that come from cold water washing: it’s good for your clothes and most importantly, cuts down your energy consumption by up to 80% (1), reducing your household bills and making it better for the planet as well.
But did you know there are many other ways to remain sustainability focused around the home?
Whether it’s plastic wrap, shopping bags or food containers, so many of our day-to-day items now have sustainable alternatives. All of these are better because they’re reusable, meaning they last longer without adding additional waste to the planet. So next time you pick up a piece of single-use plastic, see if there’s an easy alternative you can access.
REDUCE YOUR MEAT INTAKE
We all know that reducing our carbon footprint is important, but did you know the easiest way to do this is to eat less meat? Even swapping out one meal a day for a vegetarian or vegan alternative helps us collectively reduce the impact of meat on the planet.
DISCOVER THE SECOND-HAND ECONOMY
As well as being cheaper and more convenient, shopping second-hand is also good for the planet - saving a huge amount of energy and waste when compared to creating brand new items.
Whether it’s clothing, furniture, toys or any other household goods, consider going pre-loved to reduce your carbon footprint.
