Sustainability and environmental consciousness are becoming top priorities for everyone, not just government and corporations. We can all be green in 2024.
With a few changes of lifestyle, shopping, and consumption practices, we can all become more eco-friendly and support a more sustainable society. And that includes are personal waste and junk disposal choices.
Consume Smart, Consume Less
One of the best things any of us can do in the pursuit of sustainability and being "green" is to simply buy less. Less food, less consumer goods, less fuel because we will drive less, and so on.
And when we do buy products, opting for those goods that make use of recyclable and environmentally friendly packaging. Buying in bulk and opting for local goods whenever possible is a huge step towards greater sustainability, as well.
In fact, there are several actions and lifestyle practices we can adopt that can cause us all to be greener citizens and consumers.
Here are some eco-friendly practices you can adopt in 2024:
- Reduce meat consumption
- Use reusable alternatives
- Recycle and reuse
- Switch to a green bank
- Use public transportation
- Compost your food scraps
- Install energy-efficient appliances
- Support local and sustainable food sources
- Use renewable energy
- Support sustainable brands
Many of us, of course, are already engaged in some of these activities and lifestyle choices. And a significant aspect of "being green" and pursuing a sustainable lifestyle is adopting a mindset of regularly making green choices.
Here are some other eco-friendly practices we can adopt:
- Using canvas bags instead of plastic
- Starting a compost pile or bin
- Buying the right light bulb
- Choosing cloth over paper
- Cutting down on energy in your home
- Borrowing instead of buying
- Planting trees
- Conserving water
- Changing to LED light bulbs
- Stopping food waste

We Need Our Planet and Our Planet Needs Us
One of the most significant threats to increasing and maintaining sustainability in our world is how we dispose of and manage our waste. For individuals this can simply be a matter of being consistent in recycling and reusing waste materials, as well as diverting unwanted junk away from landfills.
On a larger scale, such as municipalities and governments, it involves new and innovative disposal and management technologies and practices for the massive amounts of waste generated every year.
While the average homeowner, tenant, and consumer cannot directly impact those levels of decision making, we can make a difference on a local and personal level.
And one significant aspect is what we do with our unwanted junk, trash, and rubbish - and how we choose to dispose of it.
