It’s the 51st Earth day this year and the theme is Restore Our Earth. As such, we should focus on not just avoiding what is harmful to the planet but also on what we can do to bring back the planet to its former glory. Each day, every little habit contributes to saving the planet starting with how we take care of ourselves.
Use reusable bags:
Whenever you go out to buy produce or just a quick grocery run, always bring your own reusable bag. Single use plastic bags pose ecological problems. They take years to decompose and many animals do get entangled and suffocate on it.
Reusable bags are made mostly of canvas, cotton, mesh or fiber. These bags are easy to clean and store.
Bring your own tumbler
Whenever you want to grab your daily coffee fix, bring your own tumbler as it can reduce the use of plastic/paper cups. Aside from being handy during the summer season, it is also stylish and easy to clean.
Grow your own fruits and vegetables
Majority of us have tried gardening during this pandemic. It’s an activity you can do with your family, can save you a lot of money and can teach you how to be more patient. Produce cultivated from your own garden are more nutritious as it is free from harmful pesticides. Gardening is also an effective way to reduce our carbon footprint.
Switch to sustainable alternatives
One thing we do every day that could benefit for more eco-conscious ideas is our shower time. The amount of water wasted, the harmful chemical that our products are made of and let’s not forget the plastic packaging that is one of the major culprits in having a negative impact in our environment.
