Going green is a continual process – one that stretches from reverting back to your old 1990s roller blades to thinking about the upcoming holidays in a new green way this year. Here are the top five green trends this week.
Trend Five: Homemade Composting Is Huge
Composting this week is getting greener and greener. More individuals are making their own compost at home by reusing garden waste and even kitchen waste except for dairy and meat products, which attract rodents. Composting more often causes less trash to end up in landfills, which is extremely valuable because waste is not healthy for either wildlife or for the soils at landfill sites, and many modern foods contain preservatives and are packaged in plastic, which don’t biodegrade for hundreds of years. Creating more of your own homemade compost also allows you to recycle paper, another eco-friendly gesture this week.
Trend Four: Skating to Be Green
Although the weather is becoming colder and less favorable this week, commuting outside of a car is becoming even more appealing, and we’re not talking about simply riding bikes. More roller blades that were popular in the 1990s are coming back in full swing this week, thus allowing more people to move from point A to point B on four wheels – but without an engine that emits harmful greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
Trend Three: Bring on the Green Chocolate –and Not Necessarily Mint
This holiday season, chocolate admittedly is one of the top sellers, and green chocolate particularly is growing in popularity this week. As the environmentally conscious individual considers whether to snag a box of dark chocolate or milk chocolate this week for mom (decision no. 1), his or her main focus is on decision no. 2 – whether the chocolate is organic. Buying organic chocolate ensures that he or she is supporting fair South American trade as well as staying away from toxic chemicals, a green decision that family and friends will surely will be happy about.
Trend Two: Diamonds Are Green
You’ve likely heard that diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Well, they’re not necessarily Mother Earth’s best friend – unless they are conflict-free. This holiday, many more people are heading to the jeweler’s store and asking the right questions to make sure that the store’s diamonds are not associated with human rights abuses in Africa. It’s simply a way for more loved ones to give some “bling” while being green for Mother Earth – so that everyone is happy.
Trend One: Buying Green Gifts for Family and Friends
Purchasing several other environmentally gifts, other than diamonds and chocolates, are a huge trend this week. For instance, some popular gifts include organic roses, lilacs and callas (grown without the use of herbicides and pesticides) or even a plush animal, as you can adopt an animal through the World Wildlife Fund and get this complementary gift. Even Ebay’s World of Good website offers products that benefit workers in other nations and even combat women’s sexual trafficking – all for the good of the globe.
