Earth Day is a great reminder of how important it is to think of ways you can be more environmentally friendly. Here are a few simple tips that will help you get started! Don’t forget to celebrate Earth Day to show your appreciation!
Recycling is one of the best ways for you to have a positive impact on the world in which we live. Recycling is important to both the natural environment and us. We must act fast as the amount of waste we create is increasing all the time.
Reusable Water Bottle
Using a nice, BPA-free water bottle is an insanely simple way to save the cost of a three-dollar bottle of water—the same cost of 700 gallons of water out of the tap at home. Bottled water is incredibly wasteful for so many reasons: An estimated 80 percent of them don’t get recycled and, because of the plastic production process, it takes three times the amount of water in a water bottle to produce just one!
Change out Light Bulbs
Instead of using the same old bulbs, switch to CFLs or LCDs. They might cost a little extra, but they last longer and use less power to operate.
Shop Local Produce
Not only are you supporting the little guy, but you’re cutting back on the travel costs and resources used to bring produce from places like South America to your grocery store. Plus, homegrown produce usually tastes better anyway—double win!
Reusable Shopping Bags
Reusable bags are a trending alternative to single-use plastic bags, which require significant amounts of petroleum to create, are often not recycled, and frequently pollute waterways and other public areas.
Switch to Rags
Not only are they more durable but ditching disposable napkins / paper towels will also save plenty of money over the years. It’ll also reduce your trash output, which means less energy is used transporting and processing your waste.
Turn OFF the Tap
It’s an all-too-common habit to leave the tap running while washing your face, brushing your teeth, doing the dishes, and so on. Think of it like turning off a light when it’s not being used—it’s simple, brings no inconvenience, and saves a lot of resources in the long run.
Repair that Leaky Faucet
Not only is it agonizing to listen to, a leaky tap can waste 140 gallons of water a week!
It saves gas and means fewer cars on the road—which means less carbon emissions.
