Eco-Living offers a healthy and happy lifestyle

The term ‘Eco’ is associated with the Greek word house. Over the years the word has evolved into a term widely used when talking about the environment. Eco-living is not a new concept, it is actually about going back to the basics and letting our world heal from the damage we have already caused it.

Over the last century or so, the boom in population coupled with our selfish ways has caused a lot of damage to our eco-system, unlike our attire that we can constantly change- we cannot change our planet. We only have one planet to call home.

Eco-living is the philosophy of living in harmony with nature. Eco-living is a way of life that helps to support and protect life on earth. Without disturbing the intricate balance created by nature. It is about taking our habitat into consideration while building infrastructure or using energy and the resources available to us. It is about giving back what we have taken from nature. Not wasting, misusing the resources available to us. It also means the proper disposal of the waste we have generated. It is all about sustainable living.

The Principles of Eco-living

Eco-living is based on minimizing waste, limiting the use of Earth’s natural resources, and the wise use of the environment that we. The following 3R’s are the guiding principles which can help make green living a reality:

Use Renewable Resources: Renewable resources are an endless supply of natural resources that can be restocked or made available without hampering the natural eco-system, such as solar, wind energy.

Make Reuse a habit: Eco-living encourages people to use the things that are reusable, such as water bottles made from reusable materials so that these will not be dumped in nature after use. For instance, metallic water bottles, as these cannot be washed and refilled time and again.

Focus on Recycling: Since eco-living is about living in harmony with our natural environment, it is important to prevent waste and manage garbage. Recycling becomes an important part of people’s lives and they are conditioned to reuse and recycle their waste rather than just dumping them.

Eco-living and the development of an Eco-village

Although we have heard a lot about eco-living and Ecovillages not many of us really understand the concept of an eco-village. So, what is an ecovillage?

These villages are holistic human settlements, that aim to regenerate social and economic systems. These can either be traditional or new intentional communities that have been developed to regenerate their social and natural environment. Aire village is one such village, located in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. It was designed to create a haven for remote workers looking to relocate to a more serene environment where they can live and work in a community that is centered around their well being
