Cleansing Your Environment
At Beautifully Nourished, we are very aware that nourishment comes not only from the nutrients we consume in the form of food, but from the thoughts we tell ourselves, the people and the environment that we surround ourself with.
"We know nourishment to come in many forms, from food to thoughts, emotions to relationships and the environment that surrounds us".
We are no more in a consistently safe and clean environment. In today's world we are leaving an extreme carbon footprint on our planet. Many of our actions, whether we are consciously aware of them, or not - are leading to increased contamination that is harmful to our health and our Earth. Pollution has a long term detrimental effect on our climate. An increasing number of automobiles and factories produce toxic waste, damaging our health and wellbeing. Sometimes it feels as if it is hard to breathe on this planet.
To protect and cleanse our environment, we must contribute in one way or another to keep the world clean.
It is necessary to find solutions to reduce the harm to our world and cleanse the environment from environmental problems such as water pollution and climate change. Individually and collectively, we can have positive results if we act responsibly and consistently.
The following are seven effective ways to keep the environment clean:
Trees are our primary source of pure oxygen under sheer depletion by the continual and uncontrolled spreading of factories and industrial units. We need to take on planting trees for a green and clean future for our children.
Another way is to promote local agriculture as it helps to reduce the transport of products globally. Also, organic food is more healthy as compared to processed food.
Here at Beautifully Nourished, we use fully compostable shipping mailers. Each time we order new mailers, a new tree is planted.
Limit the Use of Electrical Equipment
The reduction in the use of energy consumptions can help to create a clean environment. It reduces the amount of CO2 produced as a by-product by lowering the energy grid usage. We should use products that aren’t only energy efficient but also environment friendly.
Recycle Waste Materials
Many people know about recycling, but it is not apparent to everybody how it can cleanse the environment. The existing item after regular use can be reused to make a new product that can again be utilised differently. Collecting the right products in the recycling bin also significantly impacts the environment to improve cleanliness. Instead of putting trash, products such as bottles, plastics, aluminium, and paper can be recycled to downsize into another form. This will reduce the possible environmental pollution which might have caused by burning these materials. There are many practical ways in which we can use various materials and protect the atmosphere.
Assure a Healthy Environment
A healthy ecosystem consists of all the components, including green plants, humans, and livestock. All the units help to maintain a healthy, clean and vibrant environment. The whole world is under the negative effect of severe pollution and global warming. But on the contrary, we can help each other protect the world as an entire more healthily and make it cleanse with a slight variation in our everyday life.
Clean drinking water is declining globally as companies dump waste and causes contamination into natural water reservoirs. Water waste includes flowing toilets, long baths, using dishwasher times and again. We should consider collecting and storing the rainwater and using it to water the plants, scrub the vehicles, and conserve natural resources.
Decrease the Use of Chemicals and Removing the Waste
Instead of buying disposable products, we should purchase utensils made of recycled materials that are non-plastic and re-useable.
It is highly advised to reduce the use of domestic chemical products that pollute the environment. Try to limit distilled bleach, citrus, and baking soda as remedies for cleaning purposes. Always opt for environment-friendly cleaning products.
Paper is made from cellulose obtained from trees, causing the cutting of trees. A better way to communicate is by using the electric exchange of information as much as possible. If it is unavoidable to print, try to opt for recycled paper and print double-sided. A step further can be taking notes on a paperless journal. Many people use reusable notebook. It looks like a regular journal but is an eco-friendly option.
These are just efforts and a few constructive steps we can take to cleanse our environment and make it beautiful. These steps can motivate us to play our part in creating a sustainable and pollution-free environment.
All of Beautifully Nourished's outer box and bag packaging is fully recyclable and made from recyclable material. All of our e-commerce mailers are full compostable.*
*Our compostable mailers are made from a combination of PBAT, a bio based polymer which is compostable, and PLA which is made up of plant materials such as regular ﬁeld corn and wheat straw. Our use of PLA makes up barely 0.05% of the annual global corn crop, making it an incredibly low-impact resource.
