Hey Honey, there are many holidays this weekend that are cause for celebration and busy schedules. However, no matter how busy you get there is always enough time to celebrate Earth. In honor of Earth day this Monday (April 22), spend some extra time caring for our planet with these easy tips:
1. Shop Earth-Friendly
Buy products that are good for the Earth and the living beings that inhabit it! When you shop, look for special markings that indicate if the product is eco-friendly or cruelty free. Icons include, but definitely aren't limited to:
2. Spend Time Outdoors
One of the best things we can do for the Earth is appreciate it and everything it provides for us. By being outside, we're reminded of its beauty; whether in the forrest, the mountains or at the beach. How you choose to spend this time is up to you, but we recommend turning it into something productive like planting a tree or cleaning up litter.
3. Stay Away From Your Car
Opting for your bike or feet instead of your car allows you to spend more time outdoors while emitting less harmful gasses into the environment. If you are traveling a long distance, we recommend you take the bus or carpool (at least for this weekend).
4. Find Better Sources of Food & Water
One of the leading culprits of pollution is the agricultural industry–both of crops and animals. By planting your own garden, going meatless for certain days and collecting your own water or using a reusable water bottle, you can significantly cutdown on your carbon footprint.
You can use these tips to celebrate the Earth and be more mindful of the environment everyday of the year, honey!
