I strongly believe that we have a responsibility as humans to give to those less fortunate, our money, time and resources to help raise those who just need a little help in getting back up. Volunteer your time, give to charities, it feels great and does so much. I'm the owner of Bangledox Eco-Friendly Clothing, what does that mean? We only use earth friendly materials in the production of our exclusive t-shirts, organic cottons as well as non-toxic inks and dyes. Bangledox Eco-Friendly Clothing,combining personal style with environmental awareness and proving that we're more than just a brand, we're a movement.
Since I was a child I have known the importance of not polluting, of course then it was "don't toss your candy wrappers on the floor" as my mother would say, and as I got older those lessons stayed with me.
Keeping our planet clean should be on our priority list along with family and friends, work and so forth, doesn't have to be on top, just there.
If you’re reading this blog, you’re probably concerned about the environment and the adverse impact human activities have on it. You are careful not to waste resources such as: water - you turn off the tap when you’re brushing your teeth, and take showers instead of baths. electricity - you switch off the lights when you’re leaving a room. petrol - you switch off the car engine when waiting for more than a minute etc. So how did you come to care about the environment? When I was young, we’ve had all sorts of campaigns to encourage people to conserve resources. There were colourful posters saying how if everyone saved just one drop of water a day, we’d save millions of litres of water every year in Singapore. But there was always doubt in my mind, how much impact would I have when people around me don’t seem to care? Water and electricity are priceless resources, which out of necessity, are affordable.
The trouble comes when we judge the value of a good by its price. Water is so cheap, what’s the harm in wasting a few litres every day? After all I can afford it. One day I realised that it’s about doing the right thing. It just feels wrong to be wasting a precious resource such as petrol or clean water. The fact that some people do so is not a reason for me to follow suit. I guess the message from the endless campaigns did filter into my consciousness in the end. For the past few years, the campaigning focused largely on cutting CO2 emissions. It must have struck a significant chord with people because Al Gore just won a Nobel Peace Prize for his energetic advocacy against global warming. Of course, fighting global warming isn’t just about CO2 emissions but a simple message is much more memorable. So my message to you is simple as well: Buy eco-friendly products whenever possible.
Global warming is the flavor of the month, just like famines in Africa back in the 1980s. I hope we will all continue to care for the environment after the hype and hoopla die down.
Here are a few great eco-friendly companies you should consider and check out, from food to flooring, clothing to plastics.
