We’ve all got them. Those things you indulge in online when you have a spare 5 minutes and no one is looking over your shoulder. It might be checking out the latest releases on Netflix, or it might be seeing what bgo games you can play. You know you could be at the gym, or outdoors getting fresh air, but you’d rather be doing your online stuff. Whatever your guilty pleasure is, we’re here to tell you to carry on — it’s not as bad as you think! Here’s why.

Bingo and Gaming Sites

Yeah so you like a little bit of online gaming, so what? Whether it’s blackjack at Dreams Casino or online bingo games from bgo.com, you are entitled to have a little fun with your money now and then. Keep an eye out for welcome bonuses to make your cash stretch even further – bgo are currently offering £50 to play with when you deposit £10. It’s a nice thing to indulge in with a glass of wine in the evenings after a hard day’s work. Plus, the online options have no distracting bars or restaurants to tempt you into indulging in more than just bingo.

Shopping

Do you like to indulge in a little online shopping? We’re with you. Scouring the supplies of your favorite retailer is so much more fun from the comfort of your armchair. You don’t have to find parking. You don’t have to make sure your outfit matches. And you don’t have the temptation of grabbing a taco on the way home. Online shopping is the best, and you shouldn’t feel bad about it! When you do happen to feel particularly guilty about your online shopping habits, remember that shopping online uses 30% less carbon emissions than walking into a physical store. According to this article from the LA Times, your trip to and from the store is the main culprit, and is more harmful to the environment than getting your stuff delivered.

We aren’t chopping down precious trees to satisfy this need – at least, not nearly as much as we did when our only source of gossip was in magazines and newspapers. So don’t feel bad. You are truly saving the planet, one Kim Kardashian feature at a time.

Those are just some of the guilty online pleasures that aren’t nearly as bad as you think. What are your favorite things to indulge in in your spare time? What are your favorite ways to save the environment? Let us know!
