5 ways to Conserve Nature at home:

Sustainable Diet-

Meal plays an important part in Nature Conservation as they leave a huge carbon footprint if not sourced in ways that are friendly for the environment and nature. Start a sustainable diet by switching to local and seasonal plant-based products.

Make your own compost-

Composting is one of the most efficient ways of reducing the amount of waste from home that usually goes to a landfill. Leftovers from the kitchen such as eggshells, vegetable scraps, and tea bags can be used for compost.

Energy-efficient appliances-

Start thinking and investing in energy-saving appliances. Switch to LED light bulbs as they consume less energy and also reduce electricity bills.

Leave single-use plastic-

Leaving out the containers that are made of single-use plastic at home can be environment-friendly. Opt for sustainable alternatives like stainless steel and reusable glass. Also, use more paper or cloth bags for grocery shopping.

Bike more, drive less

To cover short distances, opt for bikes. Increasing pollution eventually leads to deadly diseases. Even though vehicles are unavoidable for long distances, bikes can surely be used for short distances. Also, the exercise by cycling will be a bonus.
