Are you confused by all the advice you hear and see daily on how to "go green"? Do you want to incorporate earth-friendly practices into your life, but don't know where to start? No problem. Here’s a few super simple steps to tackle the daily eco-challenges and make a difference:
1. Ditch bottled water: refill a sassy thermos.
2. Avoid plastic bags and Styrofoam packs, carry your own shopping bags and food containers instead or pop little purchases in your bag.
4. Let your hair air dry for a while before you blow dry: less frizz, less energy consumed.
5. Switch of all electrical items when not in use.
6. Opt for quality over quantity in everything you buy – they will last longer.
7. Limit your consumption of anything packaged in plastic.
And last (but certainly not least),
8. shop online @ T³ for fab pre-loved and vintage garbs!
Yes, we get it…old habits die hard. But you don’t have to be superwomen to save the world because even the smallest changes, when combined with the efforts of others, will make a difference. Our suggestion is to break one habit at a time (we respectfully recommend that you start off with #8!).
We can no longer ignore the warning signs before us. Adopting a green lifestyle is among the most positive, forward-thinking, and personally fulfilling choices that anyone can make; and hopefully this op-ed will inspire you to make everyday a green day.
In keeping with this theme, and coincidentally, the upcoming Earth Hour (March 27th, 8.30 pm) and Earth Day (April 22nd), we’ve pulled together some fashionable pre-loved pieces from designer and high street labels to literally help you go green, glamorous and consume guilt-free. And remember, delivery is free to anywhere in Peninsula Malaysia for purchases of RM50 or more!
