Can Sustainability Save Money?
A sustainable lifestyle might help you save money!
Has the journey to sustainability been expensive?
A sustainable journey inherently means being financially-sustainable as well. What’s the point of embracing sustainability if it will make us go broke? Don’t worry; it won’t! In fact, a sustainable lifestyle can actually save you money!
A sustainable lifestyle involves a few ‘R’s. Here are some ideas on how they can help you save money.
Only buy things you need
Example: By refusing, we will focus on things that we genuinely need that will serve a long-lasting purpose for us, and think twice before spending/consuming.
Reuse what you already have instead of buying new items
Example: We can reuse containers/ glass jars that we find at home to take away food or refill at Zero-Waste Stores, instead of buying new ones.
Reduce your consumption -fashion, food, energy and so on
Example: By embracing ‘Enough,’ we can prevent overconsumption, reduce wastage, and save money.
Fashion: Shop second-hand items/go thrifting = lower prices, save money
Energy: Reduce electricity and water consumption = lower utility bills, save money. Need some tips? Check out: 7 energy-saving tips
