Earth Day brings awareness to our environmental impact that, call me crazy, seems to be important considering the crazy weather lately. Seriously, how often do you aim to reduce, reuse and recycle? Does your daily routine promote environmental conservation or destruction? Knowledge is power and learning the facts will hopefully influence your lifestyle choices for the better.
As a consumer we can choose to make environmentally conscious choices like buying organic and remembering to bring our reuseable bags to the store. Fortunately, larger brands are on board as well, offering incentives and buying options to ease you into a greener existence. A small change is better than no change at all so here are some suggestions to help you adapt a more environmentally conscious lifestyle.
What environmentally friendly small changes will your make this Earth Day? Tell us in the comments.
