Eco Friendly Home
The most common toxins in your home and you don't even know about it.
“To create awareness is to create a better world of understanding for ourselves.”
We talk about us, humans, dumping plastic into the vast ocean where millions of aquatic creatures thrive. We talk about how the human population is exploiting what nature yields. We talk about how many toxic chemicals from the industry just drain out into the rivers, choking little breathing fishes. We talk about Global Warming and the political and economic state of the world and yet, we do not notice the minor ‘silent poisons’ in our own houses. Why talk about major things, when the smallest things go unnoticed?
Could be the toxins in our leathers, harmful chemicals in repellents, or even the tip of our pencils that we use so often. We may not be able to get rid of all the toxins, but
Whether you're a gamer, a video editor, or simply use your computer for business on a regular basis, your laptop may be overheating, especially if you use it on the couch or in bed. If your laptop gets too hot to the touch, it's more likely to shut down or slow down, or even worse, it might be destroyed by the extreme heat. Laptop cooling pads utilise strong fans to remove heat from your laptop so that everything continues to operate as it should, and they're a cheap laptop accessory that's well worth the money.
The natural and organic beauty products and industry are only getting bigger and better each day. Becoming more ecologically conscious has never been more important to us.
There is no better time than today to make sustainability our way of living. Considering our planet’s current state, it’s even more imperative that we make the effort to shift to a greener, more sustainable lifestyle.
Before all else, pat yourself on the back for the initiative. It all begins with the thought, but it is more than just a thought; it is a way of living. Home is the best place to start with; after all, Charity begins at home. Here are some tips and tricks which can help you to kickstart your sustainable journey.
SWITCH TO ECO-FRIENDLY COOKWARE:
Going green is rapidly becoming the norm, and the kitchen is a great place to start making environmentally friendly changes to your lifestyle. From the food you buy to the way it’s cooked and stored, you can save energy, reduce your carbon footprint and keep an eye on your budget in many different ways.
Sustainable living is a lifestyle choice you make to tackle the dangerous consumerism mindset in you. Let me help you understand how small changes can add up to big savings, for your pockets as well as for the environment. Yes, it might feel like the little things you do for the environment are just a drop in the vast ocean of unawareness, but keep in mind that your action inspires others.
We are all trapped in the vicious circle of life, spending most of our time working, nose to the grind with no energy left to think about our way of living and our contributions to the environment. We hear people around us say over and over again that living sustainably
Plastic is everywhere. Don’t be surprised when I say a whopping 91% of the plastics produced to date haven’t been recycled yet. Yes, 91%.
Plastic has subtly become an inherent part of our day-to-day lifestyle. Sometimes we use plastics and other non-recyclable products without even knowing that they aren’t recyclable; or, let’s say that we are not yet mindful of it. People say Ignorance is bliss, but not when your ignorance is so colossal that it will impact the world in a negative way.
Plastic is ubiquitous, wherever you turn you are bound to find an item made out of plastic. It has been estimated that around 270,000 tonnes of plastic are floating across the world’s seas and is threatening more than 7000 marine life species and this is just the harm it is causing to our water bodies. It behaves like a parasite that attracts unfortunate victims making its way around the food chain, never-ending as it is non-biodegradable.
It is easier said than done to completely avoid plastic from our lives, which is why finding eco-friendly alternatives and slowly removing and replacing items of plastic is of utmost importance. Words like sustainability and green-living are hot topics now for a really good reason. We need to let go of the “Out of sight, out of mind” attitude as the world has never faced as many huge environmental problems as it is facing currently.
Sustainability, toxic cleaning, parabens free... we all hear it day in and day out and these are not just buzz words or a gimmick.

Buying a cast Iron is the best decision you can take to transform your kitchen and life towards sustainable living.
- Cast iron likes Indian weather and likes to be dry – don’t leave your pan to soak in water for long periods. Water will corrode your seasoned non-stick surface and rust wills start to form. Always store your cast iron pan in a dry location.
- Never put cast iron pan in the dishwasher. Doing so will remove the seasoned surface.
- Cast iron corrodes really fast so after cleaning your cast iron, dry it thoroughly and wipe it down inside and out with a small amount of oil. This also keeps it in prime shape for your next use.
- Make upcycled cloth towels which can be used in place of paper towels for more eco-friendly cleaning
