7 Easy Steps for a More Sustainable Life

Copra Coconuts Ratchaburi Farm
Living a more sustainable lifestyle is not only beneficial for the environment, but it can also save you money in the long run. 
Here are some tips to help you get started:

1. Bring your own reusable bags, water bottle, and coffee cup to reduce your use of single-use plastics.

2. Buy in bulk to reduce packaging waste. You can bring your containers to refill at the store or use Copra's freeze-dried and frozen coconut meat resealable packages. It's a lot lighter and smaller than jars making it much easy to carry.

3. Compost your food scraps instead of sending them to the landfill. You can easily use the compost to fertilize your garden. Another easy way to reuse food scraps is to turn them into powder and liquid stocks.

4. Choose products made from natural, sustainable materials such as bamboo, glass, or stainless steel.

5. Shop local to reduce the carbon footprint of transportation and support your community.

6. Repair and reuse items instead of throwing them away. You can learn how to mend clothes or fix broken appliances. Avoid buying unnecessary items and opt for second-hand items instead. You can find unique and affordable treasures at thrift stores or online marketplaces.

7. Cook your meals at home instead of ordering takeout or going out to eat. This not only reduces waste from packaging and disposable utensils, but it's also healthier for you.

By adopting these habits, you can reduce your waste and carbon footprint while also improving your quality of life. It may take some effort to adjust to this lifestyle, but it's worth it for a healthier planet and wallet.
