Today’s blog post is a slightly different blog post because I’m going to be reviewing Emma’s Simple Eco Home Audit Checklist & Tips pack*! There are so many amazing things about this pack that Emma has put together, but first a little background on the eco-lifestyle.
What is an eco-lifestyle?
An eco-lifestyle is when you are trying to reduce the impact you have on the environment by altering your actions. Measuring your carbon footprint can help you see which parts of your lifestyle have the biggest impact on the planet. The 4 Rs are super important: Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle.
Reuse: Reuse plastic bags, containers, jars etc.
Repair: Repair clothes, bags and products rather than automatically buying something new.
Recycle: Recycling should be the last resort, if you can’t reuse or repair it, then recycle it.
I believe that the most important thing is doing what you can. You don’t have to do everything, and it doesn’t have to be perfect. For example, I try to get refills when I can but sometimes it can be impractical. Trying to be eco-friendly all the time can be pretty hard, I like to add another eco swap to my routine once a month.
Anyway, back to Emma’s eco-home audit!
Introducing Your Simple Eco Home Audit Checklist & Tips
What is it?
It’s a jam-packed downloadable guide to get you started on your eco journey. The 36-page guide is filled to the brim with sustainable swaps, tips, cleaning recipes and articles. It can help for any stage of your sustainability journey with small, manageable steps to a more sustainable lifestyle.
In the introduction, Emma emphasises how not all the swaps will fit everyone’s lifestyle. I love that she has said this and it reminds me of this quote:
“We don’t need a handful of people doing zero-waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly”Anne-Marie Bonneau
The eco-home audit checklist has been broken down into sections of the house to make it as easy as possible to implement these changes. For some of the eco-friendly alternative ideas, Emma has written more than one which is a great way to encourage more people. My favourite part is how she shares her own cleaning recipes in simple step-by-step graphics.
I have been looking through the lists, and I love that I can tick lots off. With the sections of the house broken down, I can see which areas I am doing well in.
Throughout the eco-home audit, there are articles sharing tips on how and what goes in food waste, compost, how you can save water etc. There truly is everything & more you could need for an eco-friendly checklist in here!
I thoroughly recommend you purchase this eco-home audit.
Best wishes, Cx
