Simple Ways to Help Environment
The world we are experiencing today is the result of our collective consciousness, and if we want a new world, each of us must start taking responsibility for helping create it.
With everything that’s happening in the world right now, you may be wondering “who will save the planet?” The answer is all of us, working together, to take actions big and small that have a lasting impact.
See, every day we make choices that may seem inconsequential in the moment but they do add up over time. The good news is that by making some simple tweaks to our habits, we can all live a sustainable life.
- EAT LESS MEAT, MORE PLANTS
It's no secret that industrial agriculture and factory farmed meat is bad for the environment. So, cut down on read meats and processed foods, get most of your food from local farmers who use sustainable practices, and eat more whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and nuts to reduce your impact. This action will help reduce global GHG emissions, decrease deforestation, and protect our global freshwater supply. It's also good for your health!
- BUY LESS STUFF
Our overconsumption of cheaply made, single-use goods is wrecking the planet and creating 60,000 garbage trucks full of waste every day. So, try to fix what you have, purchase things that will last, and think about the entire life cycle of each item. After all, knowing that plastic toothbrush will take at least 300 years to break down should change your perspective. And when you do need to make purchases, try to get the most eco-friendly version to reduce your impact.
- REDUCE WATER WASTE
Have a leaky faucet? You could be pouring 90 gallons of water down the drain. Every. Single. Day. If you aren’t sure how to fix it, there’s a YouTube video for that! And while we’re on the subject, avoid buying bottled water. The micro plastics are bad for you, and people around the world buy 1 million plastic drinking bottles every minute, which go right into our oceans to harm aquatic life. The best solution? Install a filter on your tap and find out more ways to reduce water waste.
