What does it mean to live sustainably?

Content provided by Guided Solutions

Sustainability is a key concept in today’s world as we strive to preserve the planet for future generations. It’s about making choices that minimize our impact on the environment, from reducing energy consumption and waste to choosing products made from sustainable materials and supporting businesses that prioritize sustainability.

Sustainable living requires reducing our carbon footprint

One of the core principles of living sustainably is having a smaller carbon footprint — the total amount of greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide we emit into the atmosphere due to how we live. You don’t have to take drastic measures to reduce your carbon footprint.

It’s not just about being environmentally friendly — although that’s a big part. It’s about using resources responsibly and efficiently so they will forever be available. That could mean opting for an electric vehicle, switching to energy-efficient appliances and light bulbs, or biking to do local errands rather than taking the car.

Sustainable living requires being intentional about the products we use

We can also adopt recycling and composting and be mindful of how much we rely on single-use plastics.

Renovating a kitchen or bath? Ask your contractors if they’re using sustainable materials and hold yourself to a higher standard when it comes to water usage and heating and cooling your home.

When you’re ready for home insurance, let us know. By doing the comparison shopping for you, Guided Solutions is helping you reduce your carbon footprint, too!
