Sustainable Hacks for Spring

Posted on 29 Mar 2023

Spring is a great time to focus on sustainable habits and reduce your environmental footprint.

Here are some sustainable hacks for the spring:

  1. Start a compost: Composting is a great way to reduce waste and create nutrient-rich soil for your garden. You can compost food scraps, yard waste, and even some paper products.

  2. Use a rain barrel: Collecting rainwater with a rain barrel can help you conserve water and reduce your water bill. You can use the collected water to water your plants and garden.

  3. Shop at farmers' markets: Supporting local farmers and buying fresh, in-season produce is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. Plus, it supports the local economy.

  4. Plant a garden: Growing your own food is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint and have fresh, organic produce at home. Plus, it can be a fun and rewarding hobby.

  5. Use eco-friendly cleaning products: Switching to eco-friendly cleaning products can help reduce your exposure to harmful chemicals and reduce your environmental impact. You can even make your own cleaning products using natural ingredients.

  6. Use reusable bags and containers: When grocery shopping or running errands, bring your own reusable bags and containers. This reduces waste from single-use plastic bags and containers.

  7. Reduce energy use: As the weather warms up, try to reduce your energy use by opening windows for natural ventilation, using energy-efficient appliances, and turning off lights and electronics when not in use.

  8. Bike or walk instead of driving: When possible, opt for biking or walking instead of driving. This reduces emissions and is a great way to enjoy the spring weather while getting exercise. If you're looking for sustainably made trainer liners check out our crew & trainer socks!
