In the modern world, more and more people are concerned about making ethical investments that will secure the future of the planet for their children, and their children’s children. This means investing in products that are sustainable, and businesses that are using green energy and green industrial techniques. In this article, we’ll take a quick look at four such products—items that you can buy, or support, in order to make the world a better, more ethical, and more sustainable place in the future.
One of the byproducts of the cannabis market, which, as you’ll know, is booming at the moment, is hemp. The sinuous material that is contained in hemp has long been a preserve of the more green-minded amongst us; it’s incredibly sustainable, and incredibly hard-wearing when made into a fabric. Usually, you’ll see hemp bags, but you might also see hemp come up in unexpected places. For instance, hemp is used in many natural mattresses, and is included in natural bedding and sheets, too. It’s also a great material for heavy jumpers, or for winter warmers for animals. These products are regarded as bring green, sustainable, and kind to the planet.
When you’re drinking, you’re looking to use your own cup where possible, or one that can be reused by the bar or restaurant that you’re visiting, after being washed. This is the way that the world has developed cups, mugs, and glasses, and that’s certainly a sustainable way of living. But there are hundreds of occasions where we need a drink on the go, and the paper cup is a master of sustainable design where this is concerned. Formed by mulching and then resetting recycled paper (and able to be recycled again) the paper cup, in its greenest form, is the perfect example of recycling at work.
Any oil that you purchase from a drug store or from your favorite wellness website has been extracted from natural sources. The same can be said of CBD oil, which has been experiencing a renaissance in recent years. This kind of product is developed after putting the plant from which the oil is extracted into a vacuum oven—a piece of kit that enables cooking without the smoke or the vapor. The products of this heating are then taken to the lab, where they’re safely infused into the oil that we see on shelves around us each day.
If you’re vegetarian, you’ll be more than aware of the veggie meat options available around you. If you’re not, and you’ve never tried them, this is your time to see what the hype is about. These meat substitutes have been painstakingly developed, over a series of hundreds of trial-and-error experiments, over the past two decades. Now, you’ll barely be able to tell the difference between an artificial and a real piece of chicken. The former is kinder to the environment, as it’s developed in a lab, requiring no farming and very few fossil fuels.
These four products are all regarded as sustainable, natural, and green; and are great to invest in if you’re interested in the survival of the planet.
