Today is the official Earth Day! We have today to celebrate our beautiful planet and every day to save it. Every Friday, I will be sharing reusable and environment-friendly products with discounts. The goal behind it is to encourage purchasing reusable items. If you already own it, you don’t need to buy another, just learn how to re-use the one you have and make the most out of it. Read our latest post on ‘how to be eco-friendly at home‘ and check out ‘our eco-friendly shop‘.
How am I reusing
I am going to focus on how I am reusing my clothes. As I started losing weight, many of my clothes didn’t fit me well. First of all, there were many moments I wanted to shop as my body was changing but I controlled myself. I knew my body had more to evolve. So, if I shopped for clothes during the fitness journey, I was just collecting more clothes that wouldn’t fit me in the coming months. Secondly, I researched ways to re-style my existing outfits. I am so happy to see baggy jeans back in trend as most of my jeans are loose. Try to find different ways to style your outfits. Thirdly, I packed the clothes that don’t fit me now but I might use them in the future like when I get pregnant. After listening to my pregnant friend’s issues on shopping for pregnancy clothes, I had this great idea. Fourthly, I gave some items to my friends and families if they were interested. Then, I opened Vinted account and started to sell pre-loved items. Lastly, I donated other items to non-profit organizations.
Likewise, we can reuse, re-sell, donate, recycle so many items that we own. Every step count. Personally, I don’t think it is possible to implement all actions to save the earth in today’s world. However, we can start by applying one or three or some practices that can help save our only planet.
Happy Earth Day!
