There are many ways we can live eco-friendly lifestyles without sacrificing the convenience that we know of. Whether you are in college or at home, living a clean, healthy and sustainable life can help you in every area of your life. By doing so not only does it help in contributing to a sustainable environment but it can even save you money. Here are 5 tips to encourage family to implement green measures at home:
The first step is introducing eco friendly products to your family. By doing so you raise awareness of the products and start encouraging them to implement new ways to their lifestyle. Once they learn that they aren’t forced to do without certain luxuries, they’ll be more apt to purchase the eco-friendly version of the items instead.
There are plenty of groups and organizations that opt to do something pro-earth such as cleaning a beach, planting trees, etc. These organizations are constantly looking for people who can assist them in their journey to a sustainable living. When other people can see the good that they’re doing by changing their habits or pitching in where other people have made messes, they’re more apt to make green living a sustainable lifestyle choice.
Creative Green Gifting
By giving products to family for anniversaries and birthdays, are a great way of informing your family about being eco-friendly. Gifts with a conscience are much easier to find these days. With plastics polluting oceans and seas, you can look out for recyclable packaging or products that help reduce carbon footprint like bamboo straws. One such site that helps in encouraging people to go green is Ecoy. There are plenty of items to choose from on this website. Take a look around to get ideas for the next birthday or holiday you plan on celebrating.
Making recycling easier at home by setting up recycling bins. Teach people to identify the different types of recyclable goods and after some time, they will instinctively place recyclables in the appropriate bins and you won’t need to prompt them to.

A fun way of encouraging going green is to conduct swaps at home. Where every member brings in something they don’t need or want and exchanges it with an eco-friendly product. Once they are accustomed to the new products and benefit from it. They will naturally opt for the green products.
The more you use your voice to educate, inform, and encourage others, the better chances you have of having the people you know and care about be in agreement about the things that matter most to you.
