Climate change is a big deal, but you might feel like something that affects the entire planet is beyond your control. However, there are actually some simple lifestyle alterations anyone can achieve to positively impact the environment. Here is some important and practical information on how you can make a difference.

 

What can I do? For homeowners, embracing a green lifestyle can feel daunting, but many changes are both simple and economical. For example, many people use warm water when they run their washing machine. Some experts estimate 75 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions produced by a single load of laundry come from warming the water itself. Just switching to cold water when you wash clothing can minimize your energy usage and cut those harmful emissions—and your laundry will be just as clean. When the weather is accommodating, line-drying your clothes also reduces energy usage and can even extend the life of your clothing. Also, consider purchasing energy-efficient appliances to cut back on energy use. As an added incentive, some cities offer rebates to help offset the investment.  

 

Examine energy sources. Sometimes there are issues within your home you might not be aware of, such as drafty windows or insufficient insulation. To decide how you can make your home more efficient, The Washington Post suggests investing in a home energy audit. During the audit, professionals check over your home’s ductwork, furnace, insulation, and windows.  They will notify you of problems they find and advise you on ways to cut energy usage.

 

Sunny solutions. Solar power is a smart solution for reducing your home’s environmental impact. Installing solar panels to completely supply a home’s energy needs can be cost prohibitive to most budgets. Instead of attempting a full conversion, consider a partial energy source change. By installing enough panels to cover 20-30 percent of your home’s energy usage, you can substantially offset your negative impact on the environment without an overwhelming initial expenditure. The government offers tax credits for installing solar panels, and there is a guide to help homeowners understand the ins and outs of solar power.  

 

Do some smartscaping. Did you know your landscape and gardening techniques can make an impact on the environment? For instance, choosing native plants can mean a more sustainable landscape, since specimens from the area are naturally adapted to local pests and conditions.  Another option is building a rain garden, which takes advantage of rainwater by collecting and absorbing it, rather than letting it go to waste. Harvesting rainfall to drink and for other use is legal in many parts of the country, and there are tax incentives and rebates for collecting rainwater in some areas.  

 

Change your light bulbs. One of the simplest ways homeowners can reduce climate change is by installing LED light bulbs. According to some studies, quality LED bulbs use can reduce energy use by 75 percent over other kinds of light bulbs. On top of that, LED bulbs can last as much as 25 percent longer than other light bulbs.  

 

Buy local products. As Forbes explains, putting your hard-earned dollars back into your local economy is one way homeowners can positively impact climate change. Products made with locally sourced materials means minimal transportation involved in manufacturing, and buying locally means less transportation for distribution. Along those same lines, purchasing locally grown and organic produce is kinder to your environment, as well as your body. You avoid consuming the synthetic fertilizers used in non-organic produce, which are a byproduct of oil refineries. You should also consider buying sustainable foods. Choosing sustainable foods means taking into account long-term effects on the planet, including the ecological, social, and economic factors. Consider attending your local farmers market to talk directly with growers so you can better gauge the impact of your food selections.

 

Even small lifestyle alterations can make a significant impact on the environment. Evaluate your energy use, landscaping, and food consumption. Simple changes can make a big difference when it comes to climate change.

The Market Wellness Doctor's Weekly Health Tip

Visit the Market Wellness Doctor is space #75 outside of Dewey's Pizza

 

Lifestyle Matters. How we eat, move, sleep and manage stress has an enormous impact on health and longevity. 

 

Health Tip #17: Eat Healthy Fats Daily

 

Omega 3 fats have been shown to have wide ranging health benefits. These healthy fats protect the brain, the heart and the immune system.

 

They provide anti-inflammatory effects and promote healthy cell membranes. Most Americans are severely deficient in these healthy fats due to a disproportionately
high intake of processed foods containing highly inflammatory Omega 6 fats from hydrogenated fats like margarine, shortening, vegetable oils and spreads.


Where do we get the healthy fats we so desperately need? Wild cold water fish like salmon, sardines, mackerel, cod, fish oil, grass fed beef, egg yolks, walnuts, avocados and flax seed to name a few. Remember high heat damages these healthy fats so prepare these foods gently.


Have a  good week and eat your Omega 3 fats daily.

 

Be well! See you at the market on Saturday!
