Looking for some easy ways to live more sustainably? You've come to the right place!
Here are 5 Easy Ways You Can Help the Planet:
1. Eating Locally
Locally available food reduces the amount of energy used to transport foods and it supports your local restaurants and farmers! It also reduces your carbon footprint by reducing the emissions used to get your food to your plate.
2. Recycling & Composting
By recycling, you reduce trash and conserve natural resources! It also protects ecosystems and wildlife because it reduces the need to grow, harvest, and extract raw materials from the earth.
3. Conserving Water
Water conservation starts with using less water and reusing as much water as possible! You can conserve water throughout your day by being considerate of the amount of water you are using. As an example, turning off the water after wetting your toothbrush is a great way to save some water as there is no need to keep the water running while brushing your teeth.
4. Reducing Use of Single-Plastics & Plastic Products
This will help our land-fills from overflowing into our backyards! Single-use plastics are the total opposite of environmentally friendly products and should be replaced immediately! Ditch the plastic water bottles and invest in a reusable water bottle. Also, replace plastic bags with a beautiful reusable bag
5. Carpool or ride your bike
On short journeys why not ditch the vehicle in favour of walking or cycling? You can also carpool with a colleague to get to work or use public transport instead to lower carbon emissions and pollution.
