We take so many things for granted, yet we hardly think whether these products that we rely heavily upon for our everyday use are any good? We mean they may be good for us but are they good for the environment. That’s where we should start looking for more eco-friendly products that are not only good for us but also good for the environment. What are eco-friendly products? These as they say cause no harm to the environment not only when they are produced but also when they are used or disposed of. These are some of the products that can reduce the pollution that may cause to the environment. Let’s find out about some of the eco-friendly products that we can integrate into our daily lives.
When you buy napkins did you think that there are a huge number of napkins and diapers that are disposed of every single day in the world? We use it only once and just throw it away without giving it an iota of thought. However, we can think of a way where we can use the products again and lower the burden on the environment. Ensure the product is either made up of made of bamboo or clothes. They can be easily washed and reused and this way you can protect your baby from harmful chemicals that are used to make these disposable diapers.
Cloth Shopping Bags
Sadly, despite warnings from environmentalists we still rely on one-time-use plastic bags in way of using shopping bags. We have an environmental-friendly version of one-use plastic bags and they are nothing but cloth bags or mesh bags. They are ubiquitously available and can easily replace plastic bags. The onus is on the shopkeepers to stop using and providing the customers with plastic bags. This will definitely stop the customers from using the bags.
Most batteries we use to charge our gadgets contain a lot many harmful metals such as lead that can have a detrimental effect on the environment and even on your health. The best swap will be definitely using rechargeable batteries. It does cost a lot more than the regular batteries but in the long run, they are good for you and the environment, so why not make the swap now and do your bit for the environment?
Reusable Water Bottles
Another product that you can see a lot more around than you would care to admit are plastic bottles, they are here, there, and everywhere. However, consciously we have to think of a way to slowly but surely get rid of plastic bottles. Reusable water bottles can be your safest bet as you can clean them up and use them over and over again, you can use bottles of stainless steel, glass, copper, or aluminum.
Most of the cleaning products you find in the supermarkets to clean your house are toxic to you and the environment. We fail to realize that there are a lot of many household products that can do the cleaning job as well if not better. You can use any kind of vinegar such as apple cider vinegar or white vinegar, tea tree oil, and water. These easily-available products don’t cause a dent in your pocket either.
Water Powered Clock
Have you heard about the water-powered clock? It is the Bedol Water Clock that maintains perfect timing without the additional burden of batteries and/or electricity. All you need to do is open the cap and fill it with water. It’s a technology-backed device that has the power to generate energy. Electrodes inside the water reservoir can convert ions into a powerful current strong enough to power it for 3-months or more. There is also a memory chip that can reset the time while you change the water.
EcoKettle has a secret compartment where you can fill up the water. Then with the press of a button, you can transfer the required amount of water to the second compartment, where you can boil the water. This will boil the exact amount of water you need, so it will not waste extra energy to boil more water, that you don’t require.
