April 22, 2019 is designated as Earth Day this year. With all the talk of climate change, plastic pollution, and reducing our carbon foot print, I thought I would share some ways we can make a small contribution to help save our planet. It takes all of us just doing something small to make a big impact.
Reduce, reuse, recycle. Reduce your consumption, reuse what you can, and recycle items that can be made into something else.
Conserve water. The less water you use, the less runoff and waste that eventually makes it’s way to our oceans.
Plant a tree. As of 2017, 35% of trees cut down around the world are used for paper products. We must learn to reduce and recycle.
Use sustainable products. Take your own bags to the grocery, buy a water filter and use water out of the tap. You will help reduce the amount of plastic waste that goes into our landfills daily.
Start using LED lightbulbs. They last longer and use less energy.
Pick up a copy of O Magazine this month for more ways you can help save our planet. We observe Earth Day one day a year, but we should really put these things into practice on a daily basis to do our part.
