Today marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, and there will be a plethora of opportunities to pay your respects to our universal mother. Small changes in your daily life add up to a big difference in how well we support the health of the earth.
If you already live eco-mindedly, then thank you!
Would like to create a more eco friendly life style without breaking the bank or moving into a yurt?
Here are a few quick and easy ideas:
Move Your Tush
Walk instead of driving whenever possible. Good for the earth-good for you glutes.
Show Your Green Thumb
Plant a small rooftop garden or in-home herb garden.You will be creating organic edibles and reducing your carbon imprint.
Brew “certified” coffee. A USDA Certified Organic label means it was grown using sustainable standards. If you are not brewing at home take a travel cup and they may even give you a discount!
Stop the Insanity
Stop contributing to the plastic bag insanity by bringing your own eco friendly bags shopping. Many stores will reward your efforts with a discount for not using their nasty landfill bags.
Real Turn Off
Use an UL-certified power strip for your electronics and turn the whole strip off at night to prevent wasting energy from phantom electrical draw.
So in honor of our earth mother please share your great eco friendly ideas and any awesome Earth Day activities you may have on your weekend schedule!
No matter what you do, you cant be perfect… If you were to chose an organization for carbon-footprint offset options, who would you recommend, and why?
