Some simple ways to live a more sustainable lifestyle:
🌱Opt for a reusable water bottle instead of a plastic one and fill it with filtered tap water.
🌱Recycle. Using plastic and paper is not 100% avoidable, but recycling is a step in the right direction. This is a terrific site to find a recycling center nearest to you (they also have resources for places to recycle metal and other materials, too!)
🌱Skip the straw or use a non toxic, reusable metal one. It takes a single plastic straw 200 years to decompose! Read more here.
🌱Stop buying paper towels and commit to using reusable dish towels instead.
🌱If you’re planning on camping out for a couple hours at your local coffeeshop, ask for a mug versus a to-go cup.
🌱Turn off the sink when you’re brushing your teeth! You can save up to 8 gallons a of water a day by doing so.
🌱Turn off lights and devices when you leave your house (this will not only save energy, but also money!)
