Reduce! Re-use! Recycle!

What are you doing to preserve/reserve the Earth's many gifts and resources? Think about it and be responsible. If you're not currently doing anything, start out with these something small adjustments:

  • Use locally grown foods - be mindful of the amount your purchase and your plate portions. A tremendous amount of energy goes into producing and transporting food much of which eventually ends up in landfills due to our wasteful ways.  Imagine the tremendous good you do by supporting local farmers, buying less, eating less and saving more!
  • Turn the water off while brushing your teeth or take baths instead of showers.  Do you know how much water is wasting while brushing teeth????  If we follow dentists recommendation of brushing your teeth at least 1-2 minutes to maintain good dental health we'd be wasting so much water!  This just blows my mind!
  • Use paper or canvas re-usable bags instead of plastic.  Again, the amount of energy that goes into making the bags compounded with the fact that these items will never break down into anything beneficial to the earth makes this one an easy habit to implement.
  • Recycle your wardrobe.  Get with friend or neighbors and have a clothes trading party!  This is a great way to save items from going into landfills and keep money in your pockets!!!  A great website for saving items from landfills is www.Freecycle.org.  This is one of my favorites!  A wonderful way to trade unwanted items with people who are close to your home or office.

My point is, there are small ways that you can start today to make a difference!  Remember, the Earth has been entrusted to us.  What are you doing to treat Mother Earth better?  These are just a FEW of the things you and your family could do today to give back.

Become aware of what you're doing - small things really add up - saves money AND natural resources!!! THINK AND DO!

Excellent post. WE all need to cut back in some way.
