Our cookies are made for people on
the go. This is because we know how important it is to get your daily
protein intake, and understand how difficult it can be to do this when
you’re busy. For many people a significant portion of their day is spent
travelling. This means either driving their own car to work or taking
Climate science has shown that
pollutants such as carbon dioxide emissions from cars and other
combustion engines contribute a significant deal to the increasing
temperatures in our ecosystem, so it’s important to take precautions to
minimize your carbon footprint.
One way to do this is to bike to
work, or if you live close enough to walk. This is not only good for
your body and the environment, but can decrease your stress levels,
increase your energy levels and focus making you much more productive.
Combine this with a high protein snack like Justine’s Cookies and you’re
guaranteed to have a great day.
Sometimes we can forget how much
water we are using because many westernised civilisations have instant
access to clean drinkable water right from the tap. But for many of us
this has become a luxury we simply can’t afford to over indulge in.
There are lots of ways to decrease
your water use, while still getting the same benefits you would have had
before. There are countless faucet attachments and shower heads on the
market that can help to decrease the amount of water you use.
Not every meal should be replaced
with a protein cookie. Infact, having a varied but healthy diet
contributes to overall well-being. More and more people are becoming
consciously aware of the food they put into their bodies. And Vegan and
Vegetarian diets have increased in popularity over the years.
But one important point many people
miss when exploring these dietary lifestyles is the effects it will have
on the environment. Transporting and stocking all those vegetables in
your local supermarket takes a significant amount of energy, and while
we don’t feel that you should eliminate this convenience from your life
entirely, it may be a good idea to start your own veggie garden to
supplement some of your weekly meals with fresh, homegrown nutrient
dense foods that are guaranteed to be good for the environment. And
don’t forget to compost those veggie scraps!
Eliminate Nasty Chemicals
As science has progressed our
supermarkets have filled up with incredible products that help to keep
you clean, and smelling or looking great. But many of these products
have nasty chemicals in them that either get absorbed by your body, or
sent down the drain and absorbed by the environment. It’s important to
understand what’s in these products so that you can make an informed
decision about which ones to use.
For example, Baking Soda is a great
alternative to toothpaste and can actually be better in promoting
healthy gums and fresh breath. Coconut oil is great to use as a
conditioner in your hair, and can often leave your hair feeling
refreshingly silky, unlike many of those chemical filled shampoo and
conditioner products, that may leave our hair feeling coarse and dry.
For great skin, it may be wise to
eliminate as many skincare products as possible. Substituting them for a
cold shower in the morning. While this may seem unenjoyable, it
actually seals up our pores so that grime and oil can’t get in. And it
promotes healthy blood flow which is always a good thing.
Being conscious of where our waste
goes is an important factor in creating less of it. It may be a good
idea to take an hour or so to go through your pantry and discover which
products have recyclable cardboard or plastic. Nobody wants to
contribute to pollution, and everybody can agree that landfills are
gross. But recycling can be so difficult sometimes that the task in
itself is a deterrent. Don’t let this stop you however, because
recycling is easier now than ever as many countries and cities are
dedicated to making the recycling process easier for you.
