Happy EARTH Day!
To be honest, everyday can be Earth Day if we allow it. Why don’t we all strive to make our Earth a better place than when we arrived. You cannot ge through a single day without making an impact of some kind on the world around you.
What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.
I’m sharing a few ways to make that feasible throughout the year.
✔️Make a quick scan before you leave the house to unplug things, turn off lights and set your HVAC to not run as often
✔️go for a walk! Feel the sun on your face, wind in your hair and enjoy nature
✔️use a refillable water bottle instead of a plastic bottle
✔️compost your food and make your own natural fertilizer
✔️use reusable bags instead of ziplock bags
✔️invest in every day personal products that can be sustainably packaged
ONCE A WEEK
✔️Do you have any ability to walk or ride a bike instead of driving your car? You’re reducing your carbon footprint even step by step
✔️recycle as much as possible instead of trashing everything
✔️use reusable grocery bags instead of plastic
✔️shop from local farmers for produce and meats
ONCE A MONTH
✔️clean out your air filter
✔️go on a neighborhood walk with your kids and clean up trash
✔️choose a clothing subscription verses fast fashion
✔️volunteer in your own community
ONCE A YEAR
✔️plant a lifelong tree in your community
✔️organize a community event where you clean up trash
✔️plant a backyard garden
✔️plant bee flowers for pollinating
