Whenever somebody helps us, we start to find a way to thank them back, but instead, all we do is say “thank you”. Sometimes we all feel the need to find a way to give back to society. A good deed by someone, a helping hand, a thank you, every one of these makes us feel that the world we live in is not so bad after all. What is it, that stops us? There is no lack of opportunities. Rather it is our will that stops us.
Here I will tell you about three awesome ways which you can incorporate into your daily lifestyle and you can contribute to society as well.
1. Shop From The Goodwill Stores
Have you ever wondered what impact do your shopping habits have on society? The industrially manufactured products are cheap. At the same time, these products are produced on a massive scale. For mass production at much-increased production rates, automation of production lines is carried out. This automation has deprived skilled labor of their work. By buying these products you are actually not contributing to anything but the company’s treasures. You should rather shop from goodwill stores that sell products made by hand. You can visit mersgoodwill.org online or any of there retail stores for their community products. This is one such community that promotes skilled labors for employment and empower their craftsmanship.
2. Promote Green Products
Using plastic may ease your tasks one time or the second, but it has a long term impact on our environment. The global problem for plastic wastes is calling for reforms. Use alternatives to plastic.
Nature has already gifted us with all the necessary tools and other things that we may need for healthy survival. Choose environmentally friendly, carrying bags, containers, and other packing materials, that need continuous discarding. Choose paper bags which can be easily recycled.
Choose jute bags which can be reused. There are plenty of other things that you can replace in your daily use from plastic to greener materials.
3. Buy Local Produce
Majority of the products that you buy are manufactured by harmoing someone. Dairy and meat products are produced by abusing cattle and other animals. Mined commodities such as coal and diamond, trade in exchange for the cruelty and hardships of miners.
Most of the imported products and artifacts are in fact a result of abuse to somebody else. Boycott any product that you know has been produced by abusing somebody.
Rather promote local produce. Buy something that is locally produced by artisans and craftsmen. Promoting local skills will not only stop abuse but also provide employment opportunities for the locals.
You don’t want to be the reason for someone’s grief, knowingly or unknowingly. Choosing sustainable options when you go out shopping will definitely turn this world into heaven. Give the generations to come, a chance to witness your ways of life. The greener and sustainable ways of life. These mere simple habits can do a lot.
By adopting these habits into your lifestyle you can contribute back without actually doing anything other than your daily chores and routines.
