Since Earth Day 🌍 was this week I’m basically going to treat this whole week as Earth Day because we should do that anyway, right?💚 Is this baby turtle not the cutest thing? It makes me sad that so much sealife is dying because of the way we treat our home. I thought this would be a great opportunity to tell you some of the ways we can recycle, reduce, and reuse. I’m definitely working on A LOT of changes and it’s hard. Recycling, reducing, and reusing doesn’t happen overnight. I can’t tell you how many times I forget my reusable bag in the car and carry a million things out to the car in my arms or give in and use a plastic bag. So, here’s a list of a few things you can do. I will link or show products I like in my story!
-Reusable shopping bags
-Reusable lunch bags
-Metal Straws or no straw
-Water Bottles and Reusable cups
-Use Glass Tupperware
-Buy in Bulk
-Choose products with less plastic (handsoap, refillable products, etc.)
-Buy Fresh Produce (Farmers Market)
-No Plastic Utensils (Bamboo available)
-Get and use recycling trash cans
-Pick up trash and DON’T LITTER (It ends up in rivers that go into the oceans. Not to mention places with trash look so gross!)
-Treat wildlife, plants, trees, coral, etc., with respect! Don’t destroy things for no reason!
-Public transportation (hello scooter from 09)
