Try as we may, there’s no getting away from the fact that we are currently living in very difficult times with the whole world facing many challenges. The struggles we are all dealing with as individuals, families and businesses are very real and we need to work together, unified, to fight the threat of COVID-19.
Sustainable Solutions to Keeping Healthy
Now is more important than ever to be keeping hygiene levels at 100% but with all of the hard work people have been putting into more sustainable lifestyles, Lund London believes now is the time to really see the additional benefits to our sustainable choices.
There are many ways you can benefit from your sustainable decisions to help keep yourself safe from COVID-19.
Consider using a reusable water bottle. This will mean that only you have been drinking from it, and while many cafés have sadly closed you can still use your bottle with drinks made at home, to benefit from the insulating properties keeping contents hot for 12 hours and cold for 24 hrs. Not only will it reduce the chances of contagion but staying hydrated is vital for your immune system.
The World Health Organisation recommends that people don’t share utensils so if you do choose to eat at restaurants or drink in bars, taking your own straw will avoid having to share straws used by other people
The Silver Lining
Despite the difficulties caused by the new coronavirus there is one silver lining to this dark cloud – the environmental benefits. The improvement in air pollution is already evident from the vast reduction in travel; from people working from home and using cars less to reduced air travel. NASA recently released images over China showing a drop in air pollution over lockdown areas. Researchers in New York, found that carbon monoxide from cars is already 50% less than last year, and canals in Venice are clearer than ever before with swans returning due to the clean and unpolluted water.
Tips for Surviving Self Isolation
If you are self isolating with your family, having a Skittle Bottle with mix and match lids is a great way to ensure your kids don’t mix up their water bottle – we have a range of fun faces from a wink face to a laughing face to bring some much needed joy.
Keeping active is important for both the mind and the body, so within the restrictions of your country, if you are able to go for a jog or walking the dog this is a great way to get some fresh air and some time out. If you aren’t allowed out there are plenty of excellent Youtube fitness videos you can enjoy from the comfort of your home!
