Environmentalist and model Zinnia Kumar shares her guide to adopting a more sustainable lifestyle in 2022
2. Personally, I try to buy clothes that transcend fashion trends, outfits that I can wear over and over again. They are generally classic pieces that go well with my minimalist philosophy.
3. Despite global attention to food and emissions, only a fifth of our carbon emissions actually come from food and agriculture. Being aware of our daily actions that contribute to the remaining four-fifths can really help us examine and reduce our own impact.
4. I come from five generations of farmers, so I like to grow my own herbs and vegetables when I’m not in town. Pumpkins are a favorite, along with kale, spinach, and cilantro. I use a symbiotic natural pest control solution, allowing my pet chickens to run around the garden to pick up any remaining baddies. If you don’t have the space, tomatoes and herbs are super easy to grow on your balcony.
5. Our biggest polluters are still industrial — oil, gas and mining. Speaking up, writing and complaining about it, in addition to tagging businesses and local authorities wherever you can to highlight how much you prefer non-fossil fuel energies and products, will help put pressure on government and local authorities to implement renewable alternatives.
6. Personally, I practice minimalism. Owning too much means I have to think too much and worry too much, so my room has only the essentials and nothing more. I apply the same philosophy to everything: shopping for groceries, ornaments, makeup, clothing and decorating.
