5 Easy Things You Can Do To Be A Bit More Green!
We say Earth Day should be every day, so here are a few of our favorite things we do to try and keep our planet happy.
1. Use a reusable water bottle
Since we use recycled water bottles to make t-shirts, you would think we would support the use of them. But that is far from the truth. It turns out that only about 9% of single-use plastics are actually being recycled. One simple thing you can do is is switch out that plastic water bottle for a reusable bottle. They come in all shapes and sizes, so find one that you want to use every day!
2. Turn the lights off
If you turn the lights off when you leave the room, not only are you saving electricity, you're saving MONEY! Is that enough of an incentive? With everything being so expensive these days, here's one way to save money.
3. Buy local
Farmer's Markets are a great way to support your local farmers and small businesses! The produce is fresh and less packaging is used. It's a great way to spend the day as well. Farmer's Markets usually have live music and everyone seems to have a smile on their face! It's pretty special being able to meet your farmers/makers.
4. Plant native plants
By doing this, you're providing pollen and nectar that serves as food for bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and other animals. Native plants usually require less water as well as they are acclimated to your climate.
5. Invest in reusable containers
To use less ziplock baggies, you can purchase glass containers that not only keep your food fresh longer, it helps to make your fridge look nice & tidy!
