Daily choices. How do they impact the environment?

Who among us hasn't gone through the process of creating a suitable space for working at home? The goal is to maintain the same productivity as in the office but without disturbing the comfort of other residents and order. Nowadays, more and more consumers pay attention to what they buy and what products they receive. As the saying goes: fashion passes quickly, so we are all more conscious of our purchases. Work habits, well-being, conscious choices, consumer responsibility and ecology are closely related and even result directly from each other. How do small, everyday choices affect our environment? I invite you to read.

You have the power!

Until now, everyone was convinced that it was enough to buy planet-friendly products. Now we are sure that the quality of indoor air is as important as what is outside the home. That's why everyday choices are so important.

During the pandemic, it became clear that we cannot directly control what is happening globally, but we can influence air purity, comfort, well-being and ecology in our private space. Building materials, paints, carpet chemicals and plastics are silent killers. To know how they work, it is worth reading the labels of all products carefully, this will allow you to better understand what is in them and how they are made.

Healthy habits? Always!

We are all trying to be more active. In different ways. We try to be active while working, we choose the bike instead of the car, the stairs instead of the elevator. Household chores such as vacuuming or dusting can also be considered an active break when working remotely. In fact, you can work anywhere. At the desk, at the breakfast table, in bed, on an armchair or in the garden. It does not matter. The most important thing is not to give up on healthy habits. It is also important to maintain a straight posture. This will help you avoid back pain.

There is no problem in cooking a nutritious meal while talking on the phone on business. Working at the dining room table can be as productive as working in the office. However, do not forget to adjust your favorite chair or armchair well. A good solution will be to use a footrest, which will make you feel even more comfortable. Use your favorite lamp, the amount and color of light have a huge impact on how we feel while sitting at work. Properly selected, they will prevent your eyes from getting tired quickly.

The better you arrange your workplace, even for a single use, the better you will perform, and the effects of your work will not deviate from the norm. A laptop stand, monitor arm and ergonomic mouse are also great additions. You will find many gadgets on the market that "work" with the user. A great example would be an ergonomic chair that adapts to your movements.

It is also worth noting that the trend for clean air and renewable energy is growing and will continue for years to come. Private and public buildings meet ecological standards. They use sunlight and wind. They are self-sufficient. In addition to the construction techniques themselves, it is also important to use sustainable solutions in the interiors. Furniture and all equipment should be made of natural materials and equipped with functions that support ecology and sustainable development of the planet, such as saving water.

Return on investment.

It's completely normal to think about the return on your investment with every purchase. Taking an ergonomic armchair or a desk with an adjustable top height as an example, remember that this is the best investment in your health. You'll definitely save money on a doctor or chiropractor.

Always keep the long-term goal in mind. At Deskwise, we sell products made from ocean plastic. These include, for example, armchairs whose membranes are made from caught fishing nets. The products we offer are carefully selected in accordance with the criterion of sustainable development.

A conscious approach to shopping and making good everyday choices is not a total change, but a technique of everyday choices that, from a global perspective, will make everyone's life better.
