The age-old adage goes—“We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children.”
This is truer now than ever before, as it is essential that we think of conserving our environment and be individually responsible for it. One of the most effective ways of achieving this is sustainable living, in a way that all of us can adopt, to make the earth a better place to live.
Sustainable lifestyle: A conscious approach
Leading a sustainable lifestyle is a way of doing your bit for the environment and future generations. It is about making mindful choices that are both good for the earth and good for you.
- Your first step towards a sustainable lifestyle is to educate yourself. Devote some time in learning about the items you consume (or wish to consume). Analyse their impacts and then make the right choices.
- Go for all-natural, eco-friendly and locally raised products that have a low impact on the environment.
- Make the 3 R's your best friends.
Reduce: Focus on how you can reduce the consumption of energy and useful resources. Change old-inherited habits. For starters, you can avoid plastic packaging, save energy by taking the stairs instead of the lift, and turn off lights and appliances when not in use.
Reuse: Rather than throwing away, look for ways to reuse products. You can easily, and safely, reuse plastic bottles and bags.
Recycle: Not everything is trash. Used products can be turned into new products in many innovative and creative ways. You can sell newspapers and old notebooks to get them recycled.
- Adopt sustainable decor. There is no better way to start—just you and your space. It's one of the less-spoken aspects of sustainable living that has multiple benefits including your mental well-being.

- Choose eco-elegant products that give your sustainable lifestyle an aesthetic touch.
- Go for decor pieces that are durable, long-lasting, fashionably always-in, and easy on the eyes.
- Look for energy-efficient hand-crafted products. By doing this, you also encourage local businesses and craftsmanship.
- Buy easily disposable and biodegradable products which generate minimal-to-zero waste.
- Go for reusable and recyclable products which can be used to renovate your place. You can look for vintage and second-hand pieces as well.
- Be a wise buyer and be informed about the source of the product. Choose ethically designed products.
