6 Simple Ways to be Earth-Friendly 🌎



Earth Day is April 22nd, but EVERY day is a great day to be friendly to our beautiful green planet 🌎. Here are 6 easy ways to try to incorporate some eco-friendly practices into your daily routine!



#1. Avoid single-use items wherever possible. (Many of these are money savers too!) πŸ™…

  • Ditch disposable cups/plates

  • Say no to plastic cutlery when ordering takeout

  • Stop using single-use straws

  • Use refill soaps for your hands, dish, and laundry

  • Try to use reusable hand towels instead of paper towels

  • Use reusable snack bags as much as possible

  • Instead of using K-cups for coffee, go for a french press (it feels fancier anyway!) β˜•

  • Invest in a water filter - and avoid disposable water bottles! (They are also a HUGE source of microplastics…. You don’t want plastic with your water, do you?!)


#2. Eat local & in season. πŸ₯¦πŸ…πŸ₯•

  • Local honey has more nutrients, and even can help you fight seasonal allergies (!!) 🍯

  • Join a local co-op/CSA to get weekly produce deliveries

  • Start a small garden, even just an herb garden in your windowsill (you can regrow your food from scraps like green onions or celery!)

  • Take a stab at preserving foods while they are in season
