Seven ways to be more sustainable in 2020!

Forever Living Products sustainable plantations

Nobody wants to live on a planet with more landfill plastic than animals. Nor would we want the ocean to swallow up any more of our low-lying islands – house prices are getting high enough as it is! So, here’s a few ways you can lessen your impact on the environment, choosing eco-friendly packaging and sustainable products, to prevent those worst-case scenarios.

Re-use and recycle

We all know it’s better to recycle wherever possible and to avoid single-use plastics in favour of items you can use over and over again. But, how often are you actively choosing recyclable cartons and packaging over cheaper products?

The vast majority of Forever’s product packaging is recyclable? In 2018, we also launched tetra pak packaging for our Forever Aloe Vera GelForever Aloe Berry Nectar and Forever Aloe Peaches products. This packaging is made from six layers of 100% recyclable materials, so you know you’re making a sustainable decision.

Use your car less

Many of us join the gym to keep fit and healthy, but have you considered that you might save on cash and your carbon footprint if you ditched the car more and just walked? It may not always make sense to walk your journey, but it’s always worth some consideration before you head out.

Conserve water

Whether its’s something small, like turning off the tap while you’re brushing your teeth or something bigger, like switching to a reduced-water shower head, there are so many ways that you can conserve water.

You can also look for products from companies that are actively trying to save water in their manufacturing process. For instance, the water used for washing aloe leaves on Forever’s plantations is re-used three times before it is pumped to a holding pond or reservoir where it can be used to irrigate the aloe fields. With this and many other new processes we’ve put in place, we’ve managed to reduce water usage by 90% at our plantations.

Save the trees (and aloe plants)

Most people know that trees are important to the environment because they turn C02 into oxygen, but were you aware that twenty aloe plants can covert the same amount of C02 into oxygen as a tree? With 50 million aloe plants, Forever’s aloe crops are able to cleanse the earth of hundreds of millions of tons of CO2 every single year.

Protect the bees

Without bees, an estimated three-quarters of plants that produce 90% of food crops would go unpollinated. Besides the important symbiotic work of pollination, bees produce an array of valuable substances useful to us humans. Forever Bee Honey is produced in the isolated non-toxic environment of the Sonoran Desert making it one of the purest kinds of honey in the world. Forever also harvests nutritionally rich Forever Bee Pollenthe natural antibiotic Forever Bee Propolis and the exclusive nutritious Forever Royal Jelly for the benefit of our health. 

Put on a jumper

Getting a bit chilly now the temperature is turning? Invest in a couple of warm, woolly jumpers and some thick socks and try to keep your hand away from that thermostat dial. The less you can use your central heating, the better for the environment.

Give your money to companies that give back

As a consumer, one of the best ways to be sustainable is to look for companies that give back. Whether that’s using sustainable products, eco-friendly packaging or promoting the idea of sustainable living. Many companies do this through their manufacturing processes, but more still are starting to give back in other ways. For instance, some toilet rolls companies plant a tree when a certain number of packs have been bought to replace the trees they’ve used in their manufacturing process. This is a great way to know that by purchasing your weekly groceries, you are committing to being sustainable and helping the environment.

There’s never going to be an exhaustive list of all the ways you can embrace a sustainable life, but these are starting points. Every little thing you do will make a difference, so anywhere is a good place to start!
