10 ECO IDEAS TO DO AT HOME THESE DAYS

.

We already know that being locked in one place for days can be somewhat stressful. That is why we have thought of giving you some eco ideas to disconnect and better cope with this confinement. All these ideas are aligned with the values of the #FamiliaReviverdes. So here we go:

.

1. Moving the furniture in your house will make it look like you are in another.

.These days we are going to need changes that lead us to refresh what we see around us. So Why not change the distribution of the environment within our home?

Here are some ideas:

  • Leave free space to exercise.
  • Creating a space to work (if you need to telework) and another to disconnect, it is good for our mind and productivity to make this differentiation.
  • Move some table.
  • Change the position or orientation of the bed.
  • Move a piece of furniture or shelves.
  • Change the orientation of the sofa.
  • The position of the TV.
  • Move books, objects, decorations, plants, ... to other positions.

.

We suggest that you not only move the furniture to give your home a “facelift”, It is a good time to “reduce” and think about what we really use in our house, what we like and what is taking up space without meaning ... We already know that it is something that is very lazy, but what better moment than this!

.

2. Look at the garbage you actually generate.

.It is time to be aware of how we live. Now more than ever we are showing what kind of society we are, so we are going to try to be a little more aware of what we consume and how we consume it. We suggest that you look at the amount of waste you generate in 1 week. Above all wastes that are not compostable: plastics, packaging, aluminum foil, ... etc. eco ideas 1

.

After a week, stand up and ask yourself this question: How can I continue consuming the same kind of products but generating less waste?

.

3. Create eco art and ideas with the waste you generate these days.

Related to the previous one, what do you think if we try to bring out our most creative part in these moments of crisis. We are going to try to focus stress on something positive, and our proposal is that you try create something beautiful with what is initially just "garbage". You can use cardboard, plastic, some container, bottles ... we leave it to your imagination and we hope that you will surprise us with those eco ideas.

4. Write a letter by hand to mail when it's all over.

Now is the time to recover beautiful traditions. To us, receiving letters by hand from our loved ones or from a friend who lives far away has always seemed precious, Why don't we take advantage of these moments of crisis to write to someone we care about beautiful things? We believe that it is a precious initiative and a way to reconnect with the traditions that are being lost.

5. Learn to meditate and practice a little every day to get into the habit.

In moments of anxiety, knowing how to use our breath and calm ourselves is very important. It is clear that the human being is not used to being locked up and even less in the society to which we are used today. Meditation will make you feel much better and connected to yourself. What do you think if we make a more extended post about this later and show you our little tricks?

6. Get in front of your closet. Open it. Think about what you don't wear. Prepare it to donate. 

The typical deep closet cleaning that we always put off. Now there are no excuses, there is no better plan (in addition, the time is changing so that change of wardrobe was playing right now hehe). The idea is that you reduce the amount of clothes, Think about those clothes that you are not really using so that you can give them a second life by donating them.

7. Reuse a piece of paper from behind and write a story or poetry.

Another very good exercise in creativity that you can do with just a pencil and used paper that you can reuse. Write a poem and dedicate it to someone, a story or start a mini diary of these days. Write "no matter what" and keep your mind occupied with another of the echo ideas.

8. Watch the documentary on Netflix: "A Plastic Ocean"

We have been seeing many lists of movies on networks these days that we could see on Netflix, HBO, Movistar ... Movies and series, all we want, but we have seen very few documentaries. "An Ocean of Plastic" is our recommendation if you are interested in the issue of environmental pollution or the existence of plastic in the oceans and its impact on us. 

Here the trailer: Plastic Ocean Trailer

9. Choose your favorite product in our online store and tell us what it is.

Once you have moved the furniture around (tip number 1), what better time to realize what decorative objects we miss. In addition, we have new things, and we are still active 100%, although for security, we will send the orders when all this happens 😉

10. Make your bookshelf look like a magazine.

Since we get to order, we are going to do it with everything. In the next post we are going to give you ideas and tricks on how you can organize and decorate your shelves so that they look like something out of a magazine cover, so ... pay attention!
