Happy Earth Day, April 22, 2013
I downloaded this poster from Kashi.com - I love their products, and their mission statement/ commitment statement. The four easy ideas they provide for Earth Day, can easily be performed any and/or everyday.
#1 Buy Local Food ~ #2 Pay Bills Online ~ #3 Start A Carpool ~ #4 Adjust Your Thermostat
#1, #2, & #4, no problem...#3, not so much...we don't carpool, I must admit. However, we are a one-car household, and living in the city also makes walking feasible; everything I need to do is a close by.
I'd like to also mention:
RECYCLE - most municipalities offer recycling services.
HANG DRY your laundry - even indoors, especially during hot summer months...why add more heat into you home by running the dryer?
Finally, get yourself a RE-USABLE TRAVEL CUP, both for hot and cold - with a RE-USABLE STRAW...do you know how many of these end up in landfills? Here is a great post from the Ocean Conservancy (dot) org on plastic straws.
What are you doing for Earth Day?
