There are many ways to show that you care. From recycling to composting to cleaning, the options are unlimited! Here are a few tips on what you can do to Save The Planet!:
Start A Garden
Help replenish the Ozone by starting a garden! It can be a small setting, like a sprout or herb garden, or a full fruit & vegetable garden! The abundance of plants in gardens also assist in the Oxygen-Carbon Dioxide Exchange, a process that is necessary for all living organisms. On top of that, the more you grow at home, the more it diminishes your frequency of visiting the grocery store!
Choose Organic While Shopping
If you can't start a garden at home, buying Organic also reduces the exposure of pesticide & fertilizer contamination. This is beneficial for both the consumer and the soil & groundwater that houses the produce in such practices.
Buying In Bulk
Buying food in bulk has a variety of benefits, and it’s easier to do than ever before. Participating in this efficient practice uses less packaging. If everyone bought in bulk, we'd save enough packaging waste to eliminate 1.1 million fewer garbage trailer trips to the landfill per year. It can also save a family up to $500 per year.
Go Green While You Clean
The majority of popular brands of household cleaning products contain many chemicals, including chlorine and ammonia. When mixed together and applied, they can be dangerous when exposed to their fumes and residues. Small children and pets are especially vulnerable due to higher exposure levels because of their size. Cleaning with products that have naturally derived ingredients eliminate this danger while still upholding the home's cleaning standards. Below are a few brands that are beneficial for both the home and the environment:
