Last week we celebrated Earth Day, a day where people come together globally and support our environment while advocating for the planet’s protection and restoration. While showing support on this day is crucial, here are a few small ways you can support the earth daily:
Ditch the paper towels: Reusable cloths would help you reduce cost as well as paper waste. There are sustainable cloths in all different materials, for all different kinds of purposes. Save money and the planet simultaneously by opting for cloths instead of paper towels. (This is a great option!)
Shop consignment and second-hand: The garment industry is one the most pollutant industries in the world. Choose to shop from second-hand and consignment stores instead of fast fashion retailers.
Switch to paperless billing: While most companies already opt for paperless billing automatically. Now is an excellent time to review your accounts to ensure that all your settings are paperless.
Save your plastic bags: Everyone knows using reusable grocery bags is the most environmentally conscious option. However, sometimes we cannot get around it. Save your plastic bags at home and re-use them as trash bags for the smaller trash cans around your house.
Celebrating Earth Day is a great way to celebrate our planet and to remind ourselves that there are so many small changes we can make in our personal lives year-round to ensure a happier and healthier world for the future.
