Ten Steps to Living Zero Waste

I will be sharing some tips on how to start where you are!

Like I mentioned in my previous post, you can make that difference throughout the world when you make small eco friendly changes in your everyday lifestyle..

We only need to know we are progressing and achieving results, and of course always record it. We are building a collection of #ecoambassadors for God’s gallery. Therefore we must celebrate our successes.
See some of the world’s 🌍 greatest problems may seem impossible to solve but we can solve them, not by doing big things but little..
First Step

👣 Turn off the taps 👣

Never let it run when not in use.

There are billions of people without access to clean water and sanitation, a human right many of us take for granted.

Water should never be wasted or polluted but rather be #reducereuserecycle.

One thing I do every day is to take at least 8 cups of water which I always default. But on the flip side of reality, it is a privilege abused because almost 700 million people in the world don’t have access to clean water and millions die each year due to dirty water of which 40% are children.

We hardly ever think about the privilege of having water to drink, yet we waste this precious resource.

It’s not just about water, but the fact that many women still travel long distances to fetch water in very big buckets is alarming. The opportunities lost for education or personal development.

Please what time will they have to study or self develop after that kind of rigorous hard work?

Water is about getting girls to school, no girl should be at home because of water borne disease or lack of adequate sanitation that 💦 takes care of.
Water should be about good health, about quality education, about no poverty and adequate sanitation.

Efforts to make sure communities have access to water should be “top of the mind” and every way we waste water should 🛑 stop ✋
Since I got a hold of this info, I honestly take my time and reflect on the flip side of reality.

So you will hear me say finish the water in the glass before taking another, because your brother and sister in another country don’t have such privileges.

Healthy eating is a major factor that contributes to healthy living. We are a product of what we eat, as such, the food we eat goes a long way in determining our state of health, our mental well-being and general body fitness, in adults and children alike.

Good nutrition is the bedrock of child survival, health and development. Well-nourished children are better able to grow and learn, to participate in and contribute to their communities, and to be resilient in the face of disease, disasters, and other global crises. But for the millions of children suffering from malnutrition, the reality is stark. Every year, around 3 million children die due to undernutrition – UNICEF.

There is a wide misconception on the term “Healthy eating”. A general survey shows  that many people define healthy eating as consuming a large amount of meal and eating the required 1-1-1 meal or beyond on a daily basis. While it is important to consume a sufficient amount of food, it is also important to put into consideration the nutrients we derive from these foods and how well we can combine them to provide the needed nutrients to help our body grow and function properly.

The term “Healthy eating” can be defined as eating the appropriate varieties of food that gives one sufficient and needed nutrient to live healthy and sustain general body fitness. To maintain a healthy eating habit, you don’t have to deprive yourself of the food you love, eat the same category of food daily, or  skip meals to look in shape. It is rather the ability to be able to combine and consume the right classes of food needed by the body. There should be a balance of protein, fat, carbohydrates, fiber, vitamins and minerals in our meals to sustain a healthy body.

One major hitch to healthy eating is the predominance of excessively Processed foods. Basically, to enjoy a high nutritional value from the foods we eat, there is a need to adopt a more consistent consumption of fresh natural foods.

What are Natural and Processed foods?


Natural foods, other wise known as whole foods are foods in their natural forms i.e foods that have not been processed, or do not contain any form of additives or chemicals. Examples of natural foods include raw fruits and vegetables. Foods in  their natural state are highly healthy and rich in nutritional values. They align with other vital vitamins and minerals to ensure mental and physical stability. They sustain and energise the body.

While processed foods on the other hand, are foods that have been synthesized, thereby stripping them of one or more of their original elements. In essence, they are missing valuable nutrients, fibres or water. Examples of processed foods include savoury snacks and convenience meals. Processed foods are the most widely consumed food, especially in Nigeria. Not all processed foods are totally unhealthy, but they oftentimes lack major nutrients and substances needed for optimal health, they also often times contain high salt, sugar and calories; which might be detrimental to the health.

This brings us to the need to adopt a Green eating habit, owing to the fact that living green and consuming green foods provides the best form of natural food nutrients.


Does adopting a green eating habit mean eating only meals that are green in colour?

Here is an unwavering NO to the above assumption. Adopting a green eating habit does not necessarily mean eating meals that are green coloured. It simply means adopting a more healthier eating plan,  with a predominance of fresh natural foods. Improving green eating habit goes a long way in  ensuring  a healthy life.

Adopting a green eating habit is highly cost effective and does not require an exorbitant budget, they are sometimes produce that can be planted and later harvested for consumption from our environments.  Some easy sources of green foods are fresh vegetables, fruits planted in the compound, nurtured varieties of fishes in our fish ponds or just maintaining a friendly eco system where other animals like snails can breed. .

This ensures that rather than buying stale/processed vegetables and fishes from the market, we can get them fresh from the source and enjoy it’s full nutritional value. The fruits can also be eaten fresh or used in making daily smoothies and shakes which provides the body with enough energy to keep it working, it also enhances the skin glow.

You don’t have to break the bank trying to adopt a green eating habit, It just simply has to do with adopting a new meal plan that helps us to be more productive and adds more nutritional value to our lives.


Enlisted are a few benefits of eating green foods and how it contributes to your everyday life and well being:

  • High Nutritional Value

Since they are foods in their natural form and without any additives, green foods have very high nutritional values and can serve life boosting purposes. Green foods are very rich in minerals and so many other essential nutrients like calcium, magnesium, potassium and vitamins A,  B,C and K . They also serve as a powerful source of antioxidants, which helps to protect the body from toxins, it boosts the immune system and neutralises the body to help it fight against viruses and diseases.  Raw vegetables like broccoli, kale and spinach are especially considered life boosters because of how they protect the body and helps it stay strong enough to fight toxins. Darker coloured leaves are also considered to have higher nutritional values.

  • Low in calories

There is a need to balance the presence of calories in our food, else they become toxic to the body. Green foods,  contain a large amount of water and this makes them  extremely depleted of calories. It helps us balance our calorie intake and prevent excessive weight gain which can lead to obesity. Deductively, you can consume as much green foods as possible and be sure of not adding unhealthy fat.

  • Improves Agriculture

One cannot undermine the role of the Agricultural sector in the economy of the nation. In Nigeria,  Agriculture contributes about 24% of the country’s GDP and provides employment for 70% of the country’s population.  With diverse crops grown and varieties of livestocks bred in various states across the country, Agriculture is fast becoming one of the fastest growing sector. If the concept of eating green should gain more prominence, it will indubitably improve the citizen’s agro knowledge, reduce the importation of produce and advertently improve the agricultural sector, as crops will be grown widely across the country; thereby furthering the country’s economy and creating more employment opportunities.

Conclusively, after exploring the awe strucking benefits of adopting a green eating habit, Healthy eating and living healthy is not far fetched and is a great possibility, if only we can conform to living green.

A Healthy eating haBIT, keeps the doctor farther a BIT.
