How Can I Become More Green?

We are starting to see the effects that mankind has had on the health of our planet. It’s vital that we take some action now to ensure the longevity of the Earth for years to come, preserving it for future generations. Thankfully, there are many ways we can become more green, and many of them are very simple and will have little impact on people’s daily lives. Taking the time to become more green can benefit not only the planet, but your own life too.

•    Recycle Mobile Phones

Mobile phone recycling is an easy way to help the environment, and earn yourself some money in the process. Companies, like Mazuma Mobile, specialise in phone recycling, stopping their harmful components from damaging the earth, and they will even pay you cash for your old phones.

•    Avoid Using Plastic Bags.

Plastic carrier bags can be very harmful to the environment because of the number of years that they take to degrade after they’ve been thrown away. By using reusable canvas bags for your shopping, you will be helping to reduce the impact that discarded plastic bags have on the Earth.

•    Use Energy Saving Light Bulbs

Energy saving light bulbs last approximately 15 times longer than traditional fluorescent bulbs, and use considerably less energy. Switching to energy saving bulbs can save approximately 5 pounds of carbon dioxide per bulb per month. This not only helps the planet, it can also save you some money on your energy bills.
