3 Easy Ways To Be More Sustainable
When you first begin to think about how to live more sustainably, you can quickly be overwhelmed by choices. From what you eat, to how you shop, to the clothes you wear, you have many options and each choice is surrounded by just as many outside opinions.
It’s important to remember that while your choices have weight, making a choice in the first place is the important thing. You don’t have to completely revamp your life to make it more sustainable – start with just one or two things at first and build from there. If you try to change every one of your routines at once, you’ll get burnt out and lose momentum on your sustainability journey.
Eating just one vegetarian or vegan meal a week can greatly reduce your carbon footprint. Lentils, chickpeas, and other beans are a great substitute for meat-based protein. Try out some of our Herbal Kitchen recipes for some plant-based inspiration!

You don’t have to go “full vegan” to make a big impact. Eating less meat means you consume less land and water resources that are dedicated to raising livestock. Choosing ethical brands to source non-meat animal products, such as eggs and cheese, means your dollars go to support brands who keep the environment in mind.
Plastic is everywhere in our grocery stores – and in our oceans. Lessen your impact by reducing plastic as much as possible. Start off by reducing single-use plastic. Don’t buy plastic water bottles; instead get a reusable water bottle to use every day. If it has measurements on the side, even better: you can keep track of how much water you drink each day – improving your overall health.
Bring glass containers to restaurants to store your leftovers in so you don’t have to use their styrofoam containers. Try to eat at local restaurants that you could walk, ride a bike to, or take public transportation to reduce the amount of fossil fuels you use.
Hospital and emergency services can rack up an unexpected environmental impact – driving to and from physical therapy appointments, dialysis, etc., can burn fossil fuels and use up a lot of single-use plastic as well. To avoid this, you should do your best to maintain your overall health so you don’t have to visit the doctor as often.
Drink mostly water throughout the day, get plenty of fruits and veggies in your diet, and make sure to reduce inflammation with the choices you make. Choose anti-inflammatory foods – avoid overeating carbs, drinking too much alcohol, and consuming too many refined sugars. At the root of many diseases is inflammation, including things such as diabetes.
