On today’s show I am joined by repeat guest, Logan Palau (my 16 year old), and we are talking all about being environmentally conscious. Logan also shares her favorite web browser that is actually helping to clean the ocean! Listen to the episode to hear what it is!
Did you know that April 22nd marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day?
Below is a list of 10 things you can do (or not do) to help make a difference in your home and community:
1. Rinse your bottles and jars, cans – clean empty and dry.
2. Pizza box recycle – you have to rip off the grease part of the box (I know a lot of people like to recycle the pizza boxes).
3. Don’t “Wish Cycle” – putting non recycling objects in recycling bins ~ because then we contaminate the bin.
4. Don’t recycle anything smaller than a credit card. Thinks like paper clips and staples can jam the recycling machine.
5. Make sure to dispose of things like electronics, paint cans, excess building supplies, properly.
6. Carry a reusable water bottle.
7. Keep reusable bags in your car so you can have them with you (or keep them by your door).
8. Shop Smarter:
- take inventory of what you have and don’t buy more than you need
- refrain from buying “disposable items” (because of boredom, b/c its cheap, or b/c you like it)
9. Consider Eating Plant Based Food:
- The UN reports that the meat industry is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.
- It’s estimated that over 1800 gallons of water are used to produce a single pound of beef.
10. Plant a garden with the kids and let them help to care for it.
