Everything we do affects the environment that we live in, the climate as well as species.
You’ve taken the first step, choosing plant-based products, now is the time to take another step to protect the planet and its natural resources.
If you choose a more natural way of living that respects the environment, following these sustainable practices will help you achieve it.
Every year thousands of species die because of plastic, because they swallow it or get caught up in it. This material is not biodegradable so it never disappears.
To reduce your use of plastics, always use reusable bags and avoid buying things that contain plastic.
Choose products that have recyclable, biodegradable and reusable containers.
To reduce your footprint choose sustainable products that consider the environment and economic sustainability when they’re being produced.
Organic food is free of agrochemicals that damage the earth, water, animals and farming communities.
To know if you’re buy sustainable products, find their stamps and certificates. For example, the Fair Trade certificate contributes to developing fair conditions and workers rights.
Water is an important resource for the planet. Future generations won’t have access to water if we don’t care today.
Nowadays there is a water crisis that is due to a growing world population, increasing production demand and droughts.
You can care for water by taking shorter baths, fixing leaks and replacing green areas with hardier varieties and avoiding buying bottled water.
Producing bottled water is extremely damaging for the carbon footprint and above all produces a lot of plastic.
One way of looking after the environment and the planet is buy growing your own fruit and vegetables.
These are tastier, increasing your quality of life and are chemical-free.

Also, use natural light, choose lamps that allow you to save energy to light your home and try to choose renewable energy such as solar panels as much as possible.
You can reduce your carbon footprint by choosing modes of transport that don’t pollute the environment such as a bicycle.
Also, you can choose to walk or ride a bike before using the car.
If you need to use the car to get around, try to have it ready with regular checkups.
This increases fuel efficiency, try not to buy more than you need and reduce gases that affect climate change.
The meat production industry is one of the most harmful for the environment.
