The year 2021 has come to an end, and the relief is high because 2020 and 2021 haven’t been the year, world wishes for. But hope is what keeps us going, and that’s why the world is ready again to welcome the year 2022 with open arms.

Reduce Plastic Use – When invented, plastic was sought as a revolutionary material, and it has been so. But, now it has become a badly cast spell for humankind and for mother nature. Plastic is a substance that takes hundreds of years to dissolve and keeps harming nature until it does. You need to focus on limiting and reducing your use of plastic and look for alternatives. Here are a few ways to start with:
- A new year party is going to be the first event of the coming year, and parties do lead to tons of waste. You can choose to start from first as you opt for biodegradable or edible cutlery for serving food. And place new year cake online order from a bakery that provides wooden knives and spoons along with the cake, and not the plastic ones.
- Use metal water bottles instead of plastic bottles. You can choose from stainless steel bottles and copper bottles.
- Do not use any single-use plastic item, until it’s an emergency or a situation that you can’t avoid.
Donate Your Waste – Need is the mother of invention! This phrase has been taken into consideration by many good people, and now there are businesses that are using waste materials like wrappers and polythene bags to make useful things. An Indian inventor has found a way to recycle such waste to make better roads than ever before, and one business has found a way to use wrappers of packed foods and other items to make bricks. One lifestyle change that you can make in 2022 is to collect such waste material from your home and donate it to such companies and businesses.
Spread Smile – You all are good people, and everyone is doing something good in a different way. But if you haven’t tried donating a smile yet, make sure to try it once in the coming year. A better future and better earth is not only related to decreasing pollution and focusing on sustainable living, but also on the happiness meter. You can help someone needy with a very little part of your income or just your human gestures. From giving food to paying a hospital bill or providing clothing, there is so much to do.
Green Gifting – What makes our earth different from other planets? It’s the air that we breathe that comes from the trees. On one side, pollution levels are increasing, and on the other hand, trees are being thrashed down for different purposes. The only way to keep the beauty of the earth alive is by growing more plants than cutting them. Gifting is a part of your lifestyle too as it defines your mentality and adds up to your personality. In the new year, an indoor plant should be your first choice to surprise your contacts on special days.
We told you, you do not need to put in so much effort to be a part of a much-needed revolution. The efforts that we make today are going to keep the earth as beautiful as it is for future generations.
So, hopefully, your confusion about the new year resolution is sorted now!
