With Earth Day coming up on Tuesday (April 22nd), now is the perfect time to think about making some eco-friendly changes in your life. Earth Day aims to inspire awareness of and appreciation for earth’s environment. From all-natural home cleaning products (that are better for you and the environment) and eco-friendly home furnishings to vegan fashion and eco-friendly makeup, featured in this easy eco-friendly lifestyle guide are a number of products and tips to enable you to help the environment and improve your quality of life in the process.
Eco-Friendly Home Decor & Cleaning Products
Eliminate clutter, reduce the amount of chemicals and toxins in your home, and get organized with the newest eco-friendly home decor and cleaning products on the market. From vegan leather furniture to all-natural cleaning supplies, more companies nowadays are developing effective products that are both healthier for you and your family, but also environmentally-safe.
Eco-Friendly Fashion & Accessories
Being stylish and on-trend doesn’t mean you have to hurt the environment (or animals). From recycled materials to vegan fabrics, fashion designers are starting to focus more on creating eco-friendly fashion and accessories that look fabulous, without hurting the atmosphere or animals. Featured here are several eco-friendly apparel pieces, shoes, and accessories.
Eco-Friendly Ideas & Tips
During the process of Spring Cleaning, you might be tempted to simply toss out old apparel and accessories that you no longer wear. Instead of throwing those un-worn pieces in the garbage, if they are still in good condition, sell them at a consignment store or website (like Crossroads Trading Company or ThredUp). If the pieces are in less-than-perfect condition, donate them to charity (non-profit organizations like Goodwill accepts everything from apparel to shoes and even home furnishings).
When it comes to cooking meals that are both tasty and healthy for your body, opt for using organic produce, chemical-free foods, and vegan products. With so many fantastic cookbooks published (that show you how to easily prepare vegan meals), it makes living an eco-friendly lifestyle simple and hassle-free. And with so many people choosing to go vegetarian or vegan, there are more animal-free products on the market (that taste like the real thing). So, don’t be afraid to try some new, eco-friendly recipes this Earth Day. You might be surprised how delicious these meals can taste!
