6 tips to lead a more sustainable life in 2022

Taking care of planet Earth and the people who live on it has always been one of Capsula's premises.

Adopting a sustainable lifestyle to protect the environment is a policy that we encourage, but we understand that the lack of information is a problem for those who want to start taking their first steps towards a greener lifestyle.

There are small efforts that we can make in our daily lives that will have a huge impact not only on our quality of life but also on the environment. To help start this battle, Capsula has put together some tips in a guide to make your home and life more eco-friendly this coming year.

1. Desligue os dispositivos sempre que não os estiver a usar
It seems obvious but the truth is that we often forget about the lights on in a room where we are not, or the coffee machine plugged in. Turning off lights and devices when they aren't needed will make it more environmentally friendly and more friendly to your wallet.

2. Don't waste food
Reducing food waste is not only about buying strictly necessary products but also about adopting an efficient kitchen. Cooking several meals and dividing them in their own containers will ensure that you always have your meals prepared and free from excess.

3. Tenha cuidado na hora de lavar a roupa/louça
Washing clothes and dishes at the right temperature and program prevents from ruining the pieces/dishes and also saves water and energy. Choose to try to remove stains from clothes and remove food remains from the dishes for a more efficient washing.

4. Compre roupa de forma consciente
We've talked here many times about a capsule wardrobe. A wardrobe with key pieces can make the difference, not only in your day-to-day but also in your monthly budget. Better quality pieces are reflected in a longer lasting wardrobe.

5. Don't use plastic
Probably the most mentioned measure when talking about the issue of sustainability. Refuse coffees served in plastic cups and avoid buying foods that come wrapped in plastic. Taking your own shopping bag also helps to control excessive plastic consumption.

6. Choose to share your car
Team up with a colleague or a neighbor who takes the same (or similar) route as yours. Sharing transport will make your trip more sustainable and also save money.
