Happy Earth Day! I pretend it’s ‘earth year’ and that it’s every year. 🤗
Ways to help our home:
💚Buy things in easily recycled packaging
💚Repurpose things you’d normally throw away
💚Give things to charity
💚Shop from charity shops
💚Rescue bigger items from skips
💚Bring your own bags (even if you are reusing a plastic bag for life)
💚Use takeaways which don’t use plastic boxes or use them as draw dividers or planters (make holes for drainage).
💚Try to buy organic food and skincare
💚Grow your own veg
💚Plant wild flowers which insects and bees love
💚Cycle, walk or take public transport or buy an electric car
💚Buy locally grown produce (to reduce air miles/shipping)
💚Buy from your own country when shopping online (same reason)
💚Cut down on meat and dairy (to reduce CO2)
💚Replace fast fashion with sustainable fashion or buy things you know will last and you will wear for years to come.
💚Buy a metal water bottle as the plastic one’s de-laminate and go funky after a while anyway.
💚Use skincare and cleaning products which are as natural as possible.
