"While it is sometimes #HardToBelieve, small acts can have big effects. Your #DaytoDay actions can #HaveaBigimpact on the world around you. Here are just a few ideas to help you #StartSmall, but make a #Positiveimpact on the environment.
Water Watch: The EPA suggests that the average household’s leaks can account for more than 10,000 gallons of water wasted every year, or the amount of water needed to wash 270 loads of laundry... Try using less water wherever you can, and check for leaks so you can have them fixed... #Recycle: Recycling helps the environment by using fewer resources to produce products from recycled materials... Use #NaturalProducts: Studies suggest each home has over 10 pounds of #toxicchemicals from cleaners, old paint, insecticides, and other chemicals. Avoid these chemicals altogether. There are great, natural products that work just as well (if not better) than harsh chemicals and are #GoodForTheEnvironment.
#StayEfficient : Whether it is your air-conditioning, heater, or car, keep them running well by doing proper maintenance. Tire pressure alone can decrease fuel efficiency by up to 3 percent. When you must replace your appliances, make #EnergyEfficient choices—not only will your wallet thank you, but so will the environment.
Dine Locally: This doesn’t mean go to the restaurant nearest you, but choose one that supports #LocalFarmers and #LocalProduce . Eating foods grown in your area helps to ensure that what you eat is fresh and hasn’t traveled halfway around the globe to get to your table.
#BuyOnline : Buying online may not seem very #EnvironmentallyFriendly at first. After all, those delivery trucks (UPS, FedEx, USPS) will go by your house every day whether you purchase something or not. But, buying online means you are saving at least one trip in your car.
#PreCycle : One of the #BestWaysToHelpTheEnvironment is through #ReUse. Try taking your own cup to your favorite coffee house and #CarryYourOwn #WaterBottle with you..." #GetOutside : #GetOut in it to remember how wonderful our #MotherEarth is and how much it needs to be preserved. #GoForaWalk #DigintheDirt #GoCamping #PlayAndEnjoy #PlanetEarth 💚 Blanca
