You might have seen the term “eco-conscious” being thrown around quite a lot, especially since Dubai Expo 2020. Everyone seems to have a rough idea of what being eco-conscious means, but when you get down to its nitty-gritty, you will find most people scratching their heads and coming up with vague answers.
When asked to explain, people shuffle between the words “green", ”sustainable”, and “eco-friendly.” You will hear some general ideas about how we should save our planet by replacing plastic bottles and cups with organic materials. These might seem like fine solutions, but are quite superficial.
This is where we come in to help answer the question once and for all. Being eco-conscious is an all-encompassing state where you are doing your maximum best to preserve the only planet we have.
From a consumer’s point of view, eco-consciousness is applied to almost all aspects of life. Even the way you walk to work and use your kitchen at home. Whatever actions you take, you need to make sure it has the least amount of impact on the environment.
Here comes the question, “Why bother being eco-friendly?” Well, for one thing, our environment is slowly reaching the point of no return. It has been exploited by soulless corporations who are interested only in profits. You, as an individual, can do wonders if you adopt an eco-conscious lifestyle.
Benefits of Being Eco-Conscious
There are several benefits of going eco-conscious both on a personal level as well as on a large scale.
Improvement on Health
An eco-conscious lifestyle is a surefire way to make sure you are living healthily. You can have a balanced intake of vitamins by having organic food instead of processed items. Exercising regularly by cycling and walking instead of using your car for short distances is also great.
A healthier lifestyle has a dramatic improvement on your overall state. You will feel happier and more content with life, and you will start to appreciate nature more.
Have you ever thought about how much fuel you have been burning for even the most trivial reason? Instead of taking your car out all the time, why not use a bicycle to travel short distances? Other examples of cost-saving involve using different water-saving techniques and smart lighting.
The 3 Rs
The 3 Rs of sustainability (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle) are one of the most efficient methods of preserving the environment and adopting an eco-conscious lifestyle. Reduce your consumption of unnecessary products, reuse and recycle everything you can to avoid needlessly buying new products.
The benefits are obvious, and the reasons are apparent. All that remains is to adopt an eco-conscious lifestyle. It might seem difficult in the beginning, but is definitely worth it. Starting with minor habits in our daily life, you can move towards creating an overall eco-conscious lifestyle.
