How we can all do our parts to help the environment.

Now, more than ever, we need to be concerned about the negative effects of climate change.  While most people are worried about the environment, many feel like they do not have the power to make a difference.  However, this simply isn’t the case.  We can all do our parts to help the environment by making small changes to our everyday lives.  If you want to join the fight against climate change, there here are some of the easy ways that you can get involved.

  • Install solar panels or switch over to an energy provider that uses clean energy
  • Replace the lightbulbs in your home with LED versions
  • Invest in energy-efficient appliances
  • Reduce your dryer use by hanging your clothes to dry
  • Upgrade to bio-degradable, non-toxic laundry detergents and fabric softeners
  • Switch to a low-flow faucets, showerheads, and toilets
  • Repurpose or upcycle things that you already own
  • Replace single-use items (disposable water bottles, plastic straws, baby wipes, etc.) with sustainable or reusable alternatives
  • Invest in cruelty-free and non-toxic household products
  • Reduce the amount of food waste you produce in the kitchen by planning meals and creating detailed grocery lists
  • Compost your food scraps to make use of food items that normally go to waste
