If you want to make a change and start living green, there are many small ways that you can do it while you’re single. You never know, maybe the environment will give back to you and help you meet someone new along the way.
According to Census Data, 75% of people in the United States drive to work alone instead of carpooling with others. Ride-sharing, as it’s also called, is not only good for your bank account, it consumes less fuel, cuts down on pollution, decreases the wear on your vehicle and decongests highways. Many states are adding carpool lanes as an incentive. The biggest bonus for singles is that you could meet someone interesting while sharing a back seat. With our world turning digital, live interaction is a welcome change of pace before and after a stressful workday.
Purchase Good Bubbly
We aren’t talking champagne bubbly just yet; right now we’re talking soap. Use environmentally friendly detergent for washing clothes and dishes instead of the harsh chemicals found in most products on store shelves. Although water treatment facilities do their best to filter out toxins, they still get into our waterways. Natural cleaning products that are biodegradable and packaged in recyclable bottles are a great alternative to the heavy chemicals and plastic used for household products. If you’re single, why not do your laundry at your local Laundromat, where you can share your green secrets with the handsome man folding his clothes next to you.
