How Semi-Vegetarianism Can Help To Save Our Planet

Saving the planet is most certainly at the forefront of a lot more people’s minds and as we all learn new ways to adapt, find new ways to reuse items, work on reducing our waste I know that most of us are still asking ‘is this enough?’ It can be hard to answer this because it isn’t something we can all measure and what isn’t much to one person may be a big change to another. I am all for the message that if everybody made one simple sustainable change in their lives it will have a big impact. But whilst we are focussing on plastic and rubbish, single-use items and litter picking, what about the bigger picture? Your carbon footprint.

How To Be Eco-Friendly On A Budget

 *Affiliate Links

Ok, so since making a lot of changes over the last year in order to become more eco-friendly there has been one obstacle that I have come up against time and time again: the sheer cost. Yep, as soon as you start looking for products that start with the word ‘eco’ you can guarantee that the price is going to be far higher than your usual product. I look at it in the same way I had to when I was getting married and when I was expecting. Add wedding to the front of something and the price usually triples, add baby to the front of something or even maternity and the price can roughly double basically because this is the consumerist society that we live in. The companies know they can cash in on these items, they know that these special occasions will be bought for and we all (usually) go for it. BUT when it comes to eco-friendly products I do not believe that it is necessary to spend a fortune. I mean, who can realistically maintain some of those prices for the rest of their lives? I certainly can’t, which is why I am finding ways of being as eco-friendly on a budget as I can be and I wanted to share some of these with you as it is a topic that comes up quite a lot and if we truly want to make a difference to our environment it needs to be achievable for everybody.
