1. Recyclable Fabric Clothes
Whenever it comes to shopping, you must take hours to find your favourite brand’s clothing or clothes that are on the trends. But have you ever stopped and asked about the materials used in those clothes? Surprisingly, some portion of the clothing brand still uses plasticized and synthetic fabrics which are non-degradable.
Eco-friendly and biodegradable fabric clothes can thus be alternative use in such case! Not only the use of organic-based clothes will add the same grace in your looks but will equally contribute to sustainable and better environmental outcomes.
2. Re-usable Shopping and Regular Bags
From buying groceries to shopping, we use a plastic bag as often as it is easily available. But Plastic is not degradable and unless it is properly recycled, every single plastic will be a deadly threat to nature. The plastic litters the streets, ponds and gets lasted in the ocean where aquatic animals mistake them for food. When we multiply our own use by the use of millions of people across the country, it adds up fast to a mountain of plastic bags. One can replace regular polythene bags with eco-friendly bags.
The ECO Bags come in a variety of styles and sizes. From tote bags to jute bags, one can choose their favourable shopping bags. Eco-friendly bags are not only cost-effective but also spreads the eco-friendly vibes as well.
3. Reusable Coffee cups
Statistics reveal that on an average, 3 out of 4 Australians drink coffee every day. While on the move, people rely on takeaway coffee. But for every single cup of coffee comes the use of the disposable cup, for which numbers of trees are to be cut down and only the minute rate of those disposable cups are recycled.
Although paper is biodegradable and compostable, paper cups are not the best option for the usual coffee cup. Disposable paper cups have plastic coatings which make is non-recyclable. So, start using Reusable Coffee cups instead of paper cups. Reusable cups are eco-friendly and thus can be used for long term as well.
4. Eco-water bottle
Plastic water bottles are similar to plastic bags and we use them oh-so regularly without being aware of the consequences of plastic to nature. Plastic bottles make up a large proportion of plastic waste, and only about one in five bottles are properly recycled. Besides, BPA (Bisphenol A) a chemical found in plastic can also leak into the water inside the bottle which is an ultimate threat to health.
Thus, instead of using a plastic bottle, one can switch off to using eco-friendly bottle. Think about using a bottle made of glass, stainless steel or aluminum which are BPA free and makes it a safe, sustainable way to quench your thirst for water or any kind of beverage anytime, anywhere.

6. Rechargeable battery
Batteries are non-recyclable and contain a significant number of dangerous metals such as lead. So, instead of a normal disposable battery, start using rechargeable batteries! The long run of the rechargeable battery will not only prevent environmental degradation but also will be useful for the long term.
7. Reusable Straw
We are so used with plastic straws but never care about the possible threat it can cause to our environment. There are many reasons to switch to reusable straws. We use straws once and then throw them away without a second thought, and this waste creates a lot of plastic pollution. Switching to reusable straws will lower the amount of pollution in our oceans, and less pollution means less harm to the environment and marine life!

When it comes to cleanliness and sanitation, your houses should come in your priority after your health. Keeping your house clean significantly reduce the chances your loved ones from getting ill.

9. Cloth napkin
Be it at home or usual restaurants and food hub, paper napkins seem most convenient for one-time use. But there are so many reasons why one should opt for cloth napkin over disposable paper napkins.
Although the napkins are made from paper, they are packaged in a plastic wrap that is very dangerous to the environment. Disposable paper napkins only litter the environment when not disposed of properly. While cloth napkins come in some many styles and colour and you can even make it your own custom designed cloth napkins with decorations. Moreover, cloth napkins are long-lasting and we don’t replace them very often. Even after the use, cloth napkins can be re-used into cleaning cloths. So, begin using cloth napkins over the paper napkin and make it an environmentally friendly move.
