The Sustainable Living Diploma Course considers the unsustainable ways in which we use our natural resources. It then describes the steps that we can take, as individual consumers and as a global community, to change this, through various practices that will help the environment and even save us money.
'Sustainability' is a word that is often used but not always understood. The Sustainable Living Diploma Course clarifies its meaning and explains why it is becoming more and more necessary for us to consider making changes to how we live our daily lives. You will learn how global organisations and individuals each play a part in the maintenance of a sustainable world, what the benefits of sustainable living are, and some easy steps to get you started.
The course describes what is meant by 'energy conservation', and discusses related solutions, such as energy efficiency, and why it is important to practice this. You will also be provided with many ways that you can easily conserve energy in the home.
Although the world is made up mostly of water, only 3% of it is freshwater, and of that, 2% is trapped in ice caps and glaciers. We are reliant on less than 1% of the Earth's water for all our needs. With this in mind, the Sustainable Living Course looks at how we use water and provides various ideas on how we can conserve it. It also offers practical and easy to apply practices that you can use in your home, to aid conservation and reduce your bills.
The Sustainable Living Diploma Course teaches the 3 'Rs' – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. You will learn, and be staggered by, just how much rubbish is amassed each year and what can be done to about this. By reducing the amount we consume, reusing items for new purposes, and recycling, we can make a difference to the environment and our expenses.
A course on sustainable living would inevitably talk about growing your own fruit and vegetables, but there is more to doing this in a sustainable way than merely producing organic foods. You'll discover how to start your own organic garden that also encompasses water and energy conservation as well as waste reduction and recycling.
As well as all the advice on sustainable living included in the course and the reasons to make a change, an easy to use checklist is included, so that you can quickly and easily action change within your home. You will also discover ideas that will help you to create your own solutions and the course offers advice on the products that you can use to clean your home without causing excess damage to the environment.
For those who wish to go that extra step further, the Sustainable Living Diploma Course introduces you to developing your own skin and wellness products. You can even grow most of the ingredients for these in your garden and buy the rest in bulk. You'll find recipes for shampoo, toothpaste, a headache reliever, even nappy cream, and much more, included.
Let us be your guide in saving the environment, saving you money, and living a sustainable lifestyle.
