So here we are thinking… shouldn’t every day be Earth Day?
2020’s Earth Day theme is Climate Action. Climate concerns are a leading subject in social and political discussions all over the world. With over 7 billion people on the planet, mother nature has dealt with so much and now is the time to get involved to make an impact.
Contributing to Climate Action can be easy and rewarding, here are just a few easy but most importantly, impactful ways to kick start your Eco-friendly lifestyle:
- Choosing to recycle/compost makes a huge difference in reducing your carbon footprint.
- Making the switch from paper towels to reusable washcloths is effortless yet valuable.
- Investing in a pair of reusable straws/utensils can help reduce the amount of plastic pollution in the ocean.
- And our personal favorite ? Switching to a more environmentally friendly source to power your home.
