How to Live Sustainably Without the Overwhelm

How to Live Sustainably Without the Overwhelm

If you have ever felt overwhelmed by all the things you “should” do to live a more sustainable or eco-friendly life, this is for you.

Sustainable and eco-friendly living is important! It affects the health, well-being, and happiness of you and your family. It’s also a misconception that it has to be an all or nothing adventure. We are all about creating a relaxing home environment, and sustainable living is one piece of the puzzle.

The easiest way to start your sustainable living journey is to swap out items as soon as they’re empty. This helps your wallet, the environment, and any overwhelm. Did you run out of aluminium foil? Buy some reusable beeswax wrap to cover your leftover food. Do your bedsheets need some loving? Consider purchasing organic or sustainably grown fabrics for your next set. Another great way for parents especially, to make a big difference, is to use cloth nappies. We absolutely love Nappy Luxe premium reusable nappies.

The second thing you’ll want to do on your sustainable living journey is prioritise what is important to you and your family. We all have different things that we choose to focus on. There’s no such thing as a right or wrong choice; it’s whatever is best for you! Some popular priorities include focusing on the food you consume, the products you put on our skin, the products you use in your environment (like cleaning products or fragrances), or the lifecycle of materials and their relationship to our earth.

Remember, it’s not an all or nothing adventure to living a more sustainable lifestyle. The littlest and simplest changes really do make a difference! Just like installing Mahalo Eco Blinds in your little babes rooms so they can get the best rest possible for their growing bodies (they work really well for big kids too!).

Mahalo Eco Blinds are the world’s first patented eco-blockout blinds. Made from non-toxic and compostable materials, you’ll feel at ease.
