It seems that everywhere we turn we are being asked to live green. I’m sure there are many people out there who may not even be aware of exactly what that means. They may not even be sure how to do their part in saving this beautiful planet.
When God created this place in which we live, it was much simpler. Over time we have become much more complicated with new technologies that seem to get in the way of keeping the air we breathe healthy and pure. It seems as if we are moving towards everything but natural.
Just being aware of the things we can do to make our lives and the place in which we live more healthy, clean, and beautiful is a good place to start. Make a plan to try some of the following suggestions or make them part of your monthly, weekly, or daily routines.
Don’t buy things you really don’t need and take care and maintain the things you have. Easier said then done but you will save money, time and energy in the long run. Every now and then buy organic foods http://organicfooddirectory.org they are a little more expensive but they are much better for you with little or no pesticides used. Recycle your clothes by donating them to goodwill or some other organization. They will appreciate it and you will feel good by knowing that you are helping other people. Take your canvas bags with you when you do your grocery shopping and when you buy cleaning products go with the green cleaners as they contain few, if any harmful ingredients.
Conserve energy in your homes by setting the thermostat a little higher in the summer and a little lower in the winter. And of course when it’s nice outside,turn the unit off completely and enjoy the fresh air. Using LED lights, http://ledlight.com are safer and more energy efficient and they last longer as well.
Whenever possible opt to walk, take the bus or carpool. The less fumes in the air the better off we will be. By walking we can also take time for ourselves to stop and smell the roses. Think about the things going on in our lives, pray, meditate, reflect and just enjoy the moment. A time to slow down and live the simple life if only for a little while.
I say, lets live green. It comes with many benefits waiting for us to enjoy.
May God bless you!
