Green Living: Kick-start your lifestyle

Green living seems like a never-ending, uphill battle, but you don?t have to be Al Gore to live a more sustainable lifestyle! DECO has the perfect kick-start plan to help you green your lifestyle. 

These three words might send any South African into panic, but fear not ? it is not as hard as you think.  Paul, Mary and Stella McCartney started the ?Meat Free Monday? organisation back in 2009 and have gotten the rest of the world to jump on the bandwagon.  One day without meat might just be what your body needs ? so come on, help climate change, save some animals and make your next Monday a meat free one.

We?re not here to tell you to drink half a gallon of water each day, but having a ?water-only? day once a week could make a huge difference. Bottled water is manufactured and shipped all over the globe, it leaves an unsettling carbon footprint behind. So give Mother Nature a day off and use a glass.

Cycling has become the new fashion among hip, environmentally conscious adults.  Commuting to work or the shops with a bike or even by foot is both health and environmentally conscious.  This means that for one day there will be less pollution, oil and gas use and you will save money.
Switching the lights off for one day isn?t something us South Africans aren?t use to, but doing it voluntarily might be a bit tougher.  Just think about all the exciting things you can do instead of watching TV the whole night.  When you get home from work; turn the lights off, get some candles out, light up the coals and embrace the company of those around you.

Everything we eat, drink, smell or touch is filled with chemicals; we recommend a break.  It might be tough to do this everyday, but one day of the week will seem like a breeze.  By going organic for a day, will not only make you feel better and cleaner, but it will reduce your carbon footprint as well.
