Today is Earth Day, and instead of simply suggesting things you can do to help conserve our lovely planet, we’re going to do our best to guilt you into doing them. Here are the three easiest ways to do your part:
Turn off the lights whenever you leave a room. What’s the point of leaving them on if you’re not in there? And being scared of the dark is only an excuse if you’re under the age of five.
When you’re brushing your teeth, turn off the faucet. There is no good reason to waste all that precious water going down the drain. Do you want to turn into California? We think not.
Pick up some environmentally-friendly, reusable shopping bags! In Seattle, plastic bags are banned, and they’ll charge you for paper bags, so it’s in your best interest to invest in some that you can use over and over again. Hint: These are some of our faves.
We should also point out that doing all of the above also saves you money! You can sleep well at night knowing you’re doing the right thing for Mother Earth – and your bank account – all at the same time.
