We all know that conserving energy is an excellent way to begin your journey to live sustainably. However, what are the next steps? What else can we do?

Clooper cares deeply about the environment and everyone who lives in it. As a result, we strive to benefit both of those quantities to the greatest extent possible, but living sustainably is something we must all do together in order to fully reap the benefits. For ourselves and the planet, we live on.


This is something we’ve gone into detail about before: conserving energy and switching to more sustainable energy can work wonders for the planet and ourselves. Especially our bank accounts! Not only this, by using less energy, you can help reduce carbon emissions. It’s super easy. By simply turning your heating down a touch, washing clothes with cold water and switching off any appliances that aren’t in use, you’re directly contributing to the conservation of the planet. In a small way, but Rome wasn’t built in a day as they say. Discover more useful energy-saving tips here.

Plastic cups, plastic cutlery, plastic plastic plastic. It’s far from good for the environment, therefore also us, to go through plastic like it’s going out of fashion. By cutting down on single-use items, you can do a world of good. If you’ll excuse the pun! Metal straws, reusable drink bottles and reusable cutlery are some good alternatives. Plus, if you can’t reuse something? Try and buy recyclable alternatives. For example, it wouldn’t be ideal to keep a toothbrush forever, right? Bamboo toothbrushes are a recyclable and eco-friendly alternative. Plus, they’re easily accessible. Just pop down to your local Boots or Superdrug to take your pick from the multiple recyclable options they have available. Here you can find an incredibly helpful starters guide provided by the WWF to get started on swapping out those harmful single-use plastics and get started on living sustainably.
