Components of a sustainable lifestyle include reducing waste, being resource efficient, and avoiding unnecessary expenses.
For example, changing the way you light your home can reduce energy use while reducing waste sent to landfills.
Also, becoming more efficient when it comes to running errands can cut down on your need for fossil fuels.
Research has shown that industrial meat production is the biggest cause of deforestation, pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions. In this regard, beef is one of the worst offenders.
Another way to reduce your carbon footprint is to use sustainable buildings and materials. For example, you can choose wood or other building materials as sustainable if they are grown without synthetic fertilizers, chemical pesticides, or genetic engineering.
Another way to reduce your carbon footprint is to recycle PET materials. You can also avoid unnecessary plastics by purchasing products made from recycled PET. These are only a few of the many ways to become more environmentally conscious.
Choosing sustainable lifestyles is a lifelong commitment. You must be willing to learn and explore. Increasing your sustainable practices should become your goal. But a sustainable lifestyle also requires love and commitment. Fear leads to defeating feelings, while love encourages grounded and purposeful emotions.
This is a way of living inspired by the Torah, the sacred Jewish texts and also many other texts and scriptures from various ancient cultures from around the world.
