Ecological sustainability has become the new buzzword across the globe. The United Nations and various governments are pushing aggressively for an eco-friendly “green” world. There is an urgent need for achieving the goals of a sustainable environment for the survival of the human race on Earth. The call for action is widely propagated by various governments, multilateral agencies, and the media.
My TV show, Plant-Based by Nafsika, turns the spotlight on an eco-friendly and cruelty-free lifestyle, demonstrating how you can adopt such a lifestyle and help preserve our planet. As a first step to adopting an eco-friendly lifestyle, you can start by using eco-friendly products.
You can start being eco-friendly by becoming aware of how your choices affect the environment. There are three stages to becoming eco-friendly:
- Learn to consume items that cause minimal harm to the environment.
- Discover the extent of your carbon footprint and act to lessen that footprint on the environment.
- Strive to support others that work to live and to produce eco-friendly and sustainable communities.
As you can see, the first step is all about you changing the way you consume things in your life. This means that you will need to change your driving habits, your packaging usage, how you dispose of waste, and how you use the natural resources you have.
The second step is all about trying to minimize the extent of your carbon imprint where you may have the least control over—for example, living in a house, driving a car or the kind of job you have and acting responsibly to reduce that imprint.
The last point is about seeking connections with other eco-friendly people, communities, and businesses and building a network and a support system so you can create a sustainable life.
