Why You Should Go Green in 2018!

As the year comes to a close, there’s one question on everyone’s lips; what will my new year’s resolution be in 2018? But what if we told you that making one commitment could positively impact a number of areas in your life? Because that’s exactly what happens when you adopt a more eco-conscious lifestyle.   


Here are a few reasons why we think everyone should go green in 2018…


You can help the environment


This is a no-brainer; living a more eco-conscious life is imperative for the health of our planet. Our individual and collective actions hold a huge amount of power over the environment, which is why it’s so important to ensure we’re doing everything we can to minimise our effect. In a year that has seen various natural disasters, an increasing threat from climate change and some of the world’s most beautiful natural spots degraded due to environmental damage, it’s easy to see why we need to take action sooner rather than later. Going green in 2018 will ensure we’re all doing our bit to care for our environment – because every little thing adds up!


You can save money


While many people believe that going green would be more expensive for them, this couldn’t be further from the truth. There are a number of different ways you can make a positive impact on the environment without blowing your budget – and, in fact, a lot of the time you’ll even save some coin! Living a more eco-conscious life means creating as little waste as possible, so often this means reusing materials rather than re-purchasing new ones entirely.


Our Swags are the perfect example of this; all you need to do is place your fresh produce in our eco-friendly bags and your fruit and veggies will be kept as fresh as the first day you bought them! Rather than purchasing packaged options at the supermarket, you can score some great discounts at your local market and store them in your fridge until you’re ready to eat them, allowing you to get more from what you buy.


You can safeguard your health


Being eco-friendly is by default an incredible way to boost your health. Filling your plate with fresh fruit, veggies and other wholefoods is not only much better for our environment than packaged, processed foods, but it’s also far less damaging to your insides. When you get rid of the pesticides, chemicals and artificial ingredients that many of us are so used to eating, you will start to feel a whole lot better. After all, our bodies were made to thrive on natural foods that are full of nutrients – so make sure you’re getting your fix!


You can create a better future


Every one of the above points leads to one, important thing – building a better future for our planet. The only way we can ensure our world is healthy and strong not only now but in the years to come is by taking care of it. And that starts right here, in this moment. There is never a bad time to begin going green – every change, no matter how small, counts for something. Whether you decide to shift your entire lifestyle to one that is eco-friendly overnight, or prefer to make more of a gradual change, the most important thing is that we each do our part to take care of our environment. Because, as we’ve seen, it’s something that effects every aspect of our lives – so why wouldn’t we try to protect it?
