Myths about going organic and living eco-friendly
There are always rumors and opinions flying around about living an Eco-Friendly lifestyle. Many people tend to believe what they read instead of looking into the actual facts so its time to clear up some common misconceptions about all things green and environmentally friendly!
One of the most common errors been passed around is if you change to a more planet friendly way of living you will loose money as everything is more expensive. This is false. In fact you will end up saving money in the long-term and that’s what needs to be seen instead of the rare more expensive price tags.
There are lots of false statements about appliances. One of which being that if you unplug something its not using power. It may only drain a small amount but every little counts in this world, so that small amount is negative and should be avoided at all costs. Unplug your electronic devices, when you are not using them. You will be saving energy and money. Or perhaps consider giving a try to solar energy.

Another common appliance misconception is that keeping old products is friendlier than purchasing newer Eco models. This is wrong as firstly recycling can be done easily, and secondly the new appliances are made for a reason, to be more suitable for the environment and to be free of the usual toxins, dyes, colorings, energy wasting products that are normally used. By trading in older models you are benefiting in so many ways, but always remember to recycle!
So much good can be done by making a few changes in your usual habits and daily living.
Our lifestyle choices make a huge impact not only on ourselves but also on the environment. If we decide to go organic, the world can actually benefit from this choice and here are some reasons why it’s doing the all of us good
