Everyday green pays off!

ecological in everyday life

We often hear a false belief that making a greener shift in our lives is more expensive than not doing so. Obviously, if the person who says it believes that to reduce our ecological footprint we must change our electrical system with geothermal energy, solar energy or wind power, that we must obtain energy-efficient appliances or a electric car... it is clear that the perception will be that all this is expensive, very expensive. And again, it would be necessary to assess whether its ecological impact decreases with the purchase of all these new products.

Our belief and experience clearly show us that living a more ecological life can clearly be more economical.

First, when we want to reduce our ecological footprint, we buy less and we buy better, we repair what needs a little love instead of getting rid of it to get something new, we look to rent or buy used items, we lower the heating in the house by a few degrees...

All of this is clearly much less expensive!

ecological and economical

It is true that for certain things, there may be an initial investment.

In the vast majority of cases, this investment will “pay for itself” and ultimately result in savings. This could be the case for reusable objects which will replace disposable, single-use objects. We can look here for example at the dish covers which will replace disposable food wraps. Instead of buying that disposable wrap again and again, reusable dish covers require a little more initial investment but will last for decades and pay for themselves.

Also, I will spare you all the details of the savings represented by abandoning travel in individual cars with active or collective transport. We are talking here about substantial savings and an equivalent reduction in the ecological footprint. Let's only consider the purchase of the car, the plates, the licenses, the maintenance, the gasoline/electricity, the terminal... compared to a bicycle or a public transport pass?

Same thing for food and animal proteins. Meat is the most expensive food group in a grocery store and probably has the biggest impact on the environment. Changing a few meals with plant-based proteins becomes more economical and more ecological!
