Go Organic

Buying organic fruits and vegetables is great for the environment. Choose to purchase and eat food that’s planted, grown, and harvested. Food that doesn’t have so many chemicals like synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. If you plan on going out to eat, try dining at organic restaurants.

Go Green with Clothing

Buying organic clothes is also great for the environment. You could choose to buy organic clothing that lasts longer than regular clothing so you’re not constantly buying new clothes and throwing them away. You could also shop at thrift stores to purchase recycled clothing.

Save Water

It’s important to save water the best way you can. You can help save water by not taking so long in the shower. When washing dishes, wash a full load at once so you’re only using a certain amount of water that one time. The same with dirty clothes. When washing laundry, wash a full load of laundry so you’re only using a certain amount of water once. You can also help save water by reusing water. Instead of throwing away water you no longer want or need down the sink or toilet, you can recycle the water by pouring it into your plants if you have some. Or pouring the water outside on the grass.

When you’re brushing your teeth, try not to have the water running. Only turn the faucet on when you need to put water in your mouth to gargle with the toothpaste. Be sure to take care of and fix any leaks that may be I. your home. Always remember, after you’re done washing the dishes, taking a bath or shower, brushing your teeth, or using the sink to get a glass of water to drink, be sure to tighten the faucet all the way to shut it off so no water is left dripping.

Transportation

Instead of driving your car anywhere and everywhere, try riding a bike, walking or catching a bus to get to your destination. Let’s say you and your friends are all going to the same place, instead of each of you driving why not carpool and take one car. If the place is close by you all can walk or take public transportation as well. By doing less driving as a society, we can bring down air pollution and decrease emissions.

Did you know that most people throw away their used sneakers every 125-200 days without ever thinking about recycling? Since sneakers are manufactured with materials that are not biodegradable, they remain in landfills or are incinerated, which leads to toxic chemicals in our air and soil. The environmental benefits of recycling and reusing sneakers are significant. GotSneakers is a sneaker recycling organization that’s committed to making a difference to this beautiful, big planet of ours. Partner with us by requesting your FREE Clean Out Kit today!
