Since the onset of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, the environmental impact across the globe has dwindled significantly. With most of us staying home to work, it has helped our Mother Earth to breathe again.

Check out this article on how you can kickstart a more sustainable lifestyle.

For many of us, this downtime turned out to be a good time for us to adopt alternative ways of doing things and reexamine our lifestyles. We start to address burning questions that were previously shoved to the back of our minds, like the impact our daily choices have on global emissions.

No need for grand gestures

By now, we would have been schooled to bring along reusable straws during our bubble tea runs and tote bags for trips to the supermarkets. Everyone can do their part no matter how minute. After all, it takes a drop to form an ocean.

Have you reconsidered changing up your usual mode of transportation to something else that leaves a lower carbon footprint? We get it, car ownership has become an essential means of transportation for many, with various uses for different family members and those working far from their area of residence. Would you consider the more environmentally-friendly option of owning an electric car instead of petrol-run vehicles? Do you rely heavily on taxis and private hires to get around? Instead of getting a Grab Car, have you tried Grab Hitch that utilises carpooling to save resources?

In this article, we share alternative green modes of transportation that emit no pollution at all. The Yahoo Shopping team has come up with our version of earth-friendly modes of transportation like using bicycles, skateboards, longboards, skate scooter and even rollerblades when out and about. Most of these options are handy enough to bring with you onto the trains and also for a good workout over the weekends. 

Who knows, commuting via these unconventional transportation methods may become a norm in time to come. I dream of a society much like the Scandinavian countries, where dedicated lanes allow commuters to move about safely in eco-friendly ways. Best of all, by incorporating commute with exercise, we can look forward to healthier lifestyles as well.

There's no better time to get into this healthy habit than shopping for the best deals on Amazon Prime Day, happening on 21- 22 June.
