Here are some simple, easy earth day tips each of us can do. Remember no contribution is too small when it comes to the long haul we have to repair the earth.
Earth Day Tips
1. Air dry your hair – leave the blowdryer in the closet.
2. Flush less
3. Carry totes with you for groceries and other purchases.
4. Stop using plastic water bottles and start using reusable containers.
5. Eat a more plant-based diet.
6. Open the shades and let the natural light in.
7. Take shorter showers.
8. Double check that piece of paper you’re throwing out…it might still have room for a grocery list rather than using a new piece.
9. Go paperless and opt-in to not receive paper bills in the mail.
10. Turn off computers, tvs and light switches when not in use.
