Happy earth day everyone! This is the 49th earth day celebration our country has had. Earth day started in 1970 as a way to help remind us to be consious about the earth and our precious environment. Some tips to help in the cause:
1) Reduse your use of products when possible, especially when those products are single use items like straws, plastic silverware, paper plates, food containers, liquid containers, especially if they are made out of non biologically degradable or recyclable things things, such as plastic the less things that are made, and less things that are used (and the promptly discarded) will greatly help the enviroment.
2) Reuse, resusing items when possible can greatly help as well reduse waste on the planet. Reuse things like glass jars you get as pasta containers from the store and use them as other food/item storage or organization.
3) when you can neither reuse something or reduse your use of something, recycling is the next best thing you can do, this, like the other 2 steps greatly reduces waste and the maufacturing of waste, as well as reduce the use of new resourses to use in the manufactoring of products when products can be made instead from recycled materials.
Lastly the using less fossil fuels when possible is always a good way of reducing your carbon footprint. As well as, eating less meat and animal products, this can also grestly reduce your carbon footprint, factory farms produce giant amounts of methane that is a very dangerous greenhouse gas, getting your meat from hunting or local small farms is also a more evnironmentally friendly option than purchasing factory farm meat.
If you've made it this far I home you and everyone else has a great earth day!
