Earth day, 3 steps to help it

This day should be at least one a month, our planet needs our help and this day is just a reminder of how important the change is.

Here you will find 3 different steps for trying to help it!

  1. Save energy: This is the most important tip, these are some ways that would help with the process. Turn off the lights every time you leave the room to save energy. Unplug devices and turn off electronics when not in use. Upgrade your appliances to energy-efficient ones when you have to – it’ll save money in the long run.

2. Lower your Food waste: You have heard since a long time that there are people dying of starving all around the globe, well besides the reality it is important to take care of our food no matter if we are vegan, vegetarians or carnivores.  Buy locally-grown produce to reduce your carbon footprint. Eat the products of the season. Try to buy just the necessary. Try to share if you bought more.

3. The R’s:  Use reusable shopping bags. Reuse your plastic bottles. Recycle as much as you can. Separate the different type of waste in your trash cans. Switch from disposable to reusable in order to reduce waste. Nowadays they have the 7 R’s, you can try to follow them for a better planet.

Reuse instead of buying new every time.
Repurpose The more creative cousin of reuse, repurposing turns old junk into new, functional objects.
Rot compost everything organic.
Repair instead of replacing.
Return Only buy from companies with take-back programs.
Refill instead of buying disposable bottles and paper cups.
Refuse to buy overpackaged, disposable, single-use junk.
