In honor of Earth day, I decided to post an environmentally friendly post!
It’s also administration day, people! Don’t forget to take care of those that take care of you.
MushyFace appropriate networks have been filling our brains with ideas.
Some stations are asking us to change little things in our homes.
Other stations are playing clips of children that decided to make a difference.
I challenge all of you to make this a better world for our children with our children.
Ten small ways to help the world.
1. Support local farmers.
Buy local goods instead of buying produce that came from halfway around the world.
These typically have less chemicals, more nutrients, and don’t waste gallons of gas to ship!
2. Use fluorescent light bulbs.
These light bulbs use less energy which means that they save the environment and your money!
I have invested in these, but during the day I’m all about natural light. Nothing’s better than that.
3. Recycle ALL recyclables.
This is such an easy thing to do. Separate your recyclables and dispose of them properly.
We have a separate garbage can designated just for cans and bottles. You should too!
4. Car pool whenever possible.
A car pool buddy means less emissions spilled into the air we breathe and less money spent.
I mean, if more people car pooled there would be less NY traffic. Do it, people!
5. Invest in to-go mugs and water bottles.
There is no need to drown landfills in disposable coffee cups and water bottles.
Besides, when you buy ones to reuse every day, you can make sure they’re real cute!
6. Grocery shop with reusable bags.
Most stores sell relatively inexpensive grocery bags that can be reused for every shopping trip.
For a double win, many stores give a discount for saving the Earth from harmful plastic bags.
7. Stop buying and using disposable dinnerware.
Invest in stylish dinner dishes, silverware, and glasses to save our landfills from overfill.
These investments pay for themselves after a while. I mean, disposable goods do cost money!
8. Don’t use the world as a garbage can.
There really is no excuse for polluting the Earth when public trash cans are everywhere.
Do you drive and throw trash out the window? Just wait until you’re home to dispose of it!
9. Sign up for electronic billing and filing.
Many things that are done on paper can also be done electronically. Take advantage of it!
We pay all bills online, get electronic statements, and file using secure flash drives.
10. Donate time, goods, or money to Earth friendly causes.
There are so many different organizations dedicated to preserving our Earth that need our help.
A day doing good for the Earth sounds like a fun and memorable experience for Mushy and I.
What small things do you do for the Earth?
