Different Ways to Have a Greener Commute

A Story About Biking

Written by Kelsey Nicholls 4 days ago

As Londoners, we have a really hard time cutting our vehicle emissions. Coming from a smaller northern city, I was excited to even have the option to bike to work! Once I started, I soon realized that there are SO many benefits to biking, like a great excuse for not going to the gym, and how serene it is to ride along the river.

I actually moved closer to work to reduce my commute and to be in a more walkable area.

A Story About Reducing Waste

I just bought a new home. While I was fully aware of my water, garbage, and hydro habits when I was living at home, I didn't pay the bills so I kind of just used it all. I took long showers, left lights on, and tended not to recycle. Now that I own a home, I completely recognize the error of my ways. Saving money is a great impetus towards better environmental practices. So, now I recycle constantly, use energy in off-peak hours, and take shorter showers (well, that one I'm still working on). All in all, I'm on my way to being better.

In the last year, we have made a concerted effort to use less paper and plastic waste. We have purchased a a set of silicone food covers and a Norwex envirocloth to use with our reusable lettuce bag instead of paper towels. We have purchased beeswax reusable food wraps to use alongside our reusable snack bag instead of buying plastic wrap and bags. We reuse water bottles. To clean, we use Enjo products as much as possible. We are a composting household. We must be kinder to the environment.
