Did you know that over 600,000 mums gave birth in the UK this year? For these women, becoming a parent is the moment that will come with a lot of changes and responsibility.
One of these challenging things is also related to building a better world for their children. The desire to live a more sustainable life is a new and important path to follow too. However, matching intent with action can be difficult.
What do they need to do to become a more eco-conscious parent?
To start with, we need to become very aware that the choices we make will have a far greater impact on our children’s future.
It is known that 41% of UK parents are influenced by how environmentally friendly a product is and 41%* also acknowledge that their purchasing choices are guided by how the world around them is changing.
So why not start with a few changes to make a more environmentally positive impact? Here are some practical steps to follow:
- Buy second-hand clothes, toys, and books. An astounding 3 million toys made their way to landfill in the UK in the last 6 months alone!
- Shop local and cook at home. Meal prepping and batch cooking can save a family up to £40 a week on their shopping bill.
- Wash clothes at 30°. Washing at 30° saves around 40% of energy a year.
- Pass on outgrown clothes and shoes. Recent research reveals that 183 million items of children’s clothing and 162 million pairs of children’s shoes end up in landfill in the UK every year.
- Use biodegradable wet wipes.
