A GREENER AND ECO-FRIENDLY LIFESTYLE…

Whichever way you look at it Greta Thunberg has introduced us all into a greener, eco-friendly lifestyle, but with the seriousness of how the climate crisis is at the moment, we cannot ignore it.

Now the general public are becoming more and more aware and more partial to eco-friendly products, its only natural that companies have to work towards that way.

Of course, it is not just in the UK, countries like Germany have the highest rates of recycling in the world.

Fashion designers are now looking to diversify into more eco-friendly materials. There is so much to think about from food waste, renewable electricity, mobility and consumer electronics and much more. Lots of companies are starting to label themselves “eco-friendly”, but it’s knowing if they are “truly”, “eco-friendly”. Even McDonald’s has pledged to make all of its packaging environmentally sustainable by 2025.

On the website Conserve Future Energy Be Green. Stay Green, they list over 20 good reasons to go green to save our mother earth which includes, increasing the value of your home, improving your health and air quality, slowing down climate change to helping your local economy.

Over the last year here on Images of a Hygge Lifestyle I have written a number of post on eco-friendly products including “Going Greener the Hygge Way“, “Great Eco Swaps for a Greener Life“, “5 Ways to Reduce Plastic”, ” 8 Ways to go Eco at Christmas”,Three Great Eco Products to Change To“, “Enjoy your coffee the Eco-Friendly Way“, and most recently my “3 Favourite sites for sustainable Lifestyle Products” and “Cosy of with my choice of 3 of the best Eco-Friendly Candles”.

Most of the above have had many views so my plan is to move this blogImages of a Hygge Lifestyle” to include a lot more on “A Greener and more Eco-Friendly Lifestyle “. I will start covering more companies in the UK who are doing well with genuine eco-friendly and ethical products. So, if you are a new up and coming or already established company working towards a greener and eco-friendly lifestyle then I would love to hear from you.

IMAGES OF A QUICK VISIT TO COPENHAGEN, SKAGEN AND OSLO…

We recently had a week’s cruise visiting Copenhagen and Skagen in Denmark, plus Oslo in Norway. Each stop left me with some beautiful images that I wanted to share on this blog.

From the famous Little Mermaid to the mass of cyclists and the massive amount of wind farms across the bay, it was all a beauty I will remember well in Copenhagen.

  

Skagen was pretty and lots of yellow houses and white windows with trendy restaurants and interior gifts to buy. Although very expensive it was well worth visiting.

Oslo to me was the icing on the cake and although a rather damp and dull day it did not dampen the visit. Looking quite autumnal with lots of leaves on the floor and rugs on chairs it. With trolls so famous in the area and in most shop windows, it brought back memories of younger years. The journey from the harbour out to see was absolutely beautiful with little islands and painted houses which seemed to go on forever.

We loved our visit to Denmark and Norway and I hope to return again soon.
