I hope you all are having an awesome Wednesday and Happy Earth Day! We only have one Earth and we need to take care of it. I think it’s easy to feel so overwhelmed when you think about doing your part for Mother Earth but you can start small! Every little bit helps. Here are some tips on how you can do your part by starting out small and fashion lines that support the movement:
1. Go Paperless!
Not every email needs to be printed. Nowadays, a lot of stores are asking if you want to have your receipt printed or emailed to you. I know you may not want them to have your email address but pause for a second and think about what you are actually going to do with that printed receipt. If its recycle it, that’s awesome! If you’re just going to throw it away, consider having the recipes emailed to you.
It grinds my gears when I see people litter! Sure, we have people who clean the streets of trash, but what if they miss a piece of trash that was just tossed out of a car? It basically ends up in a landfill.
When we’re busy, it can be easy to have multiple lights on at a time in our house and I get that but try to be mindful of this. The heat from the electricity we don’t use adds to Global Warming.
Most apartment complexes have recycling bins for their residents to use. If you have them, use them!
Wewood Watches (they plant a tree when you buy a product and you can choose where to plant it)
Tonle’ (they reuse textile fabrics)
Matt & Nat ( luxury handbags that are made out of recycled bottles)
Study NY ( they have a no waste policy and use recycled materials in their designs)
Just to name a few!
Remember, these are just ideas to get you started. Good luck!
