Since today is Earth Day, we thought it would be helpful to wrap up the week with a list of five things to do today (or any other day of the year) that will help the environment. We’re especially fond of #5!
1) Visit Good Guide’s website to find out what products are the most environmentally friendly. They even have a free iPhone app to use while shopping. Just scan the barcodes of food and household products, to see the rating on how environmentally responsible the items are on a scale of one to 10.
2) Why not pamper yourself while saving the Earth? Book a night (or even a weekend) at an environmentally friendly resort and enjoy rooms and restaurants in green style.
3) Start a garden re-using common items. This will not keep extra waste out of landfills, but will also give you some tasty, super-local food to use in your dishes.
4) Go paper free! With all of the technology at our fingertips, it’s easier than ever to abstain from using paper for one day. Use e-mail, save and share forms or sign up for paperless billing (all of which can be kept in handy electronic folders) and you can save a few trees while making your life a little more organized.
