You realize the importance of alleviating your carbon footprint. You understand how personal responsibility plays into it.
You believe that one person can make a difference. But sometimes it can be difficult to know exactly what you can do to contribute to the preservation of our planet.
Let’s take a look at 5 ways you can do your part to support environmental wellness.
1. Turn It Off For Environmental Wellness
Whether it’s lights, the water faucet, shower head or the TV, you can save valuable resources with a few mindful actions. The next time you’re brushing your teeth wet your toothbrush and turn off the water until you’re ready to rinse.
Unplugging appliances you don’t use very often is a great habit to get into, as well. Not only can this save precious energy, but it can also save you money. The next time you leave for vacation, unplug everything except your refrigerator.
2. Return Reusable Bags To Your Trunk
Have you ever gotten to the grocery store only to find you forgot your shopping bags at home? It can be easy to forget to return your reusable shopping bags to your car.
When you get into the routine of immediately returning your bags to your car as soon as you empty them, you make a big difference.
Also, many stores recycle plastic bags. You can ask them the next time you go grocery shopping.
3. Conserve Where You Can and Try Not To Waste
It’s truly astounding how a few simple steps can make a huge impact on environmental wellness. From eating all your leftovers to reusing your towel, you can make a difference with your daily practices.
The next time you bring home that delicious leftover spaghetti dinner, don’t push it to the back of the fridge and forget about it. It can be a whole other meal. It was tasty then, and it’ll be tasty now.
You’re clean after you shower, so use your towel a second or third time. Just be sure to smell it for potential mildew each time.
4. Get Active and Carpool
Getting active has a three-fold bonus. When you bicycle instead of drive or walk instead of taking the bus, you get:
- free exercise
- the pleasure of an endorphin-release
- the joy of knowing you’ve contributed to our planet’s environmental wellness
Carpooling also helps to lighten your carbon footprint. Ask your coworkers if they’d like to arrange a carpool and bring along a thermos of white vein maeng da tea. It’ll warm you to the core on those chilly mornings.
Not only will you lessen your environmental impact, but you’ll also have a wonderful opportunity to get to know the people you see all day long.
5. Surround Yourself With Winners
Last but not least, find people who support your desire for a healthier planet. Surround yourself with people who applaud your effort and are willing to do the same.
Belonging is a basic human need. We all want to belong. So get to know positive people who take personal responsibility for making this world a better place.
