DAY 2

Declutter and organize your living space

Decluttering is awesome for your overall health and well-being, and a necessary step to minimalist living, which is a form of sustainable living! It shows what you already have and prevents the overconsumption of things you don’t need! Start small in the bedroom, bathroom, or closet. Be careful to dispose of any item properly.

DAY 4

Support a sustainable business or an environmental cause

Buy something you need from an ethical and sustainable business, but don’t buy if you don’t need anything. Instead, you can support a cause either through donations or volunteering in organizations focused on environmental issues! Check out amazing eco-fashion brands, green businesses, and environmental organizations in the Green Living Project.

DAY 6

Restyle,  Donate or Sell Your Old Clothes

Open your closet and check out how many clothes you have that are unused. Textile waste is one of the largest contributors of waste in the landfill. The sheer amount causes major environmental issues, not counting the toxins and greenhouse gasses it releases. Let’s be conscious by restyling our old apparel, selling it, or donate it.
 

Take a photo/video of you wearing your restyled apparel. Put a short caption on how you restyled them! Or take a photo/video of you selling or donating your old clothes.

DAY 7

Compost Time

Reduce dangerous methane emissions and avoid filling up landfills by composting your organic waste at home. Did you know, composting can be super easy? Simply do the ‘dig and drop’ by digging a hole on the soil ground 25-30cm deep, and drop your leftovers in there, to be beneficial nutrients for surrounding plants and soil creatures! Or you can purchase a composting bin from local brands.
 

Take a photo/video of your compost!
