“The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is now”- Chinese Proverb.
22 APRIL 2016 – EARTH DAY
Tips for Earth Day, and how to make everyday Earth Day!
♥ RECYCLE. I’ve said it 100 times, I’m obsessed with recycling and feel it should be part of everyone’s daily life!
♥ Plant your own vegetable garden, or support your local farmers for vegetables and fruit.
♥ Go minimalist. This is something I’m slowly working on. It’s difficult as I like to hold onto things but I’m working towards a “less is more” attitude. Like I said, working on it slowly.
♥ Switch off. I’m talking about the 500 lights on in the house, the computer, the wall sockets. If it’s not being used, switch it off. → PS: unplug your cellphone charger, it draws out so much “phantom”energy.
♥ Make a conscious decision to switch over to cruelty free beauty products.
♥ Switch from plastic containers and bottles to glass ones. Healthier for you and can be reused so many more times.
♥ Local is best, or in South African terms, Local is Lekker!
♥ Donate. I believe Earth Day is not only about being kind to the planet but it should also be about being kind to those that live on this planet. Donate to your local charities, orphanages and of course your local animal shelters.
I’d love to know what you will be doing to celebrate Earth Day this year? Let me know in a comment below.
