It’s 2016 and taking care of our planet has never been more in style. Millions of pinners around the world are taking part in the eco-friendly movement by sharing their favorite articles on Pinterest about going green, and these articles are receiving a lot of attention.
Since Cariloha is passionate about providing clean and green products to its customers, we wanted to find out what kinds of environmental posts are being pinned the most. So we did our research.
We started by compiling a large list of popular articles. Then, we ran them through a tool called Social Footprint to determine which ones were being shared the most.
What we learned is that when you talk about being “green” on Pinterest, you aren’t necessarily talking about restricting things or refraining from using certain products. It’s not so much about reducing emissions as it is about increasing green living.
Pinterest has always been the favored destination for DIYers, so many of these articles are about the various eco-friendly projects you can do on your own, in a simple and inexpensive way, to add green and beautiful things to your home. They’re about how you can reuse rather than throw away. They’re about creating and adding items to your home that are environmentally friendly and that can lead to a healthier lifestyle and planet.
The following is our list of the most pinned environmental posts:
12. Show Gardens
16. Solar Shingles
47. Live Naturally
53. DIY Gas Fire Pit
You can find articles about natural air purifiers in the home, homemade cleaners that are easier on the environment, and even information on the development of solar panels and new and aesthetic ways to use alternative power sources.
Check out some of these green ideas and see if anything appeals to you. Have you seen any other articles on Pinterest that you think belong on this list? Let us know!
