Essential Eco-Friendly Alternatives For Modern Living
At Targa Real Estate, living an eco-friendly lifestyle is one of our top priorities. On top of having sustainable communities, we’re also dedicated to leading a green lifestyle. If you would like to put your best green foot forward, here are a few sustainable items that will decrease your carbon footprint in your Targa apartment.
Reusable Dish Towels
Organic cotton dish towels are an excellent alternative to disposable paper towels as you can wash them in a washing machine and reuse them. These towels also prove to be more versatile than the disposable version as you can use them to soak and drain the water that accidentally spilled on your house or kitchen floor.
You can use them to protect your fingers from a hot-to-touch pan, or you can fold them and use them to cover a tabletop from a hot pan. A good-quality organic dish towel can last for years, and apart from conserving the environment, it will help you save time and money.
Reusable Grocery Bags
According to National Geographic, around 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are used each year globally. Substituting non-reusable grocery bags with reusable ones is a great way to decrease the amount of plastic we produce.
Biodegradable Trash Bags
Most plastic trash bags are single-use and hence can harm our environment if not correctly disposed of. Switching to compostable or biodegradable plastic bags can help minimize waste.
Biodegradable trash bags are mainly made of recyclable materials and certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute. Make sure to check the BPI logo on the packaging when purchasing them.
