Recently, I personally have changed my way of living. I made a decision to give “sustainable living” a try.   decided to reduce my carbon-footprint by cutting back on my energy consumption, how I use transportation and even what I choose to eat.

What is “sustainable living” though? For those who do not know, Conserve-Energy-Future.com describes sustainable lifestyle “is the practice of reducing your demand on natural resources by making sure that you replace what you use to the best of your ability”.

What I do and have done is to change my diet to eating more natural foods and less processed foods. I also started recycling. Some people may find it difficult to move over to a sustainable lifestyle, but it is easier than most people may think.

What are 5 simple ways to be more sustainable?
1.Reduce, Reuse, Recycle- These are some the simplest ways to be more sustainable. You can reduce your energy consumption, you can reuse more everyday items, and recycle recyclable material.

2.Make your own stuff- This includes food, clothes, and more. By doing this you can cut down the transportation needed to ship food and more.

3.Change your diet- Your change in diet doesn’t have to be dramatic, but you should eat more natural foods, meatless foods and less processed, packaged foods.

4. Drive an electrically charged vehicle- Driving an electric ran vehicle reduces the CO2 emitted in the air. You will also never need gas.

5.Use Sustainable energy- By using solar or wind power, you not only save on your energy bill, but you reduce your energy consumption.
