Creative Conservation and the Home Energy Store believe in finding ways to maintain a sustainable lifestyle. Over the years, we are pleased to have witnessed an increase in sustainable activities in people across the globe. Here are a few ways to live a sustainable lifestyle that we think are really cool – and maybe you’ll find a way to incorporate these ideas into your routine!
Wearable Food – Sure, it might sound like a funny concept, but sustainable food and sustainable fashion have some common goals. As this blog post from www.bkaccelerator.com points out, “If we look at both through the lens of sustainability, it even starts to become clear that if you care about where your food comes from, the logical next step is to care where your clothes come from too.”
Some interesting clothing innovations mentioned are wearable pineapple fibers, dyes made from natural foods (think red cabbage, onions), and using food waste to create accessories. Here’s a link to the entire blog post: http://bkaccelerator.com/9-cool-projects-where-sustainable-food-and-fashion-come-together/
High Quality Products – We all like to find good deals, but as with a lot of things in life, buying cheap items such as kitchen gadgets and furniture can end up costing you more money in the long run. The website www.buymeonce.com promotes affordable, quality products that are also sustainable and socially conscious. They have put together a collection of sustainable items in categories like beauty, tools, and even toys.
