What is sustainable living?
Sustainable living is a lifestyle that aims to reduce one’s environmental impact, in ways that are sustainable both for the Earth and for the person.
Very simply, sustainable living is a method of reducing one’s “carbon footprint”. This is achieved by making choices to minimise the use of Earth’s resources and reduce the damage of human and environmental interactions. Sustainability means making choices today that will positively impact the planet tomorrow.
Sustainable living helps protect the environment and reduce wastefulness. Living sustainably is an important practice for saving the environment and using our resources efficiently. Whether you are zero waste or just getting started, your individual practices can make a difference.
There are endless ways to live sustainably, including: reducing your use of resources, composting, relying on clean energy sources, reducing your consumption of single-use plastic, eating less animal products, shopping for clothing and other items sustainably, buying local, and more.
The 5Rs of Zero waste :
- Refuse what you do not need
- Reduce what you need
- Reuse by repurposing things and choosing reusable over disposable
- Recycle what you cannot refuse, reduce or reuse
- Rot (compost) the rest
This is where Organic Origins comes in.
We aim to help people in their journey in sustainable living.
We offer products to help people compost their organic waste.
Instead of sending food scraps (that includes things like vegetable peels, and spoiled leftovers) to landfill, start composting. Composting is the process of returning anything that comes from nature to the earth, and letting it biodegrade into soil.
