The oceans, mountains, and forests of our planet are natural wonders that must be preserved. It may seem overwhelming when it comes to the effort required to make real change in our world. However, it doesn’t require as much effort as you might be thinking.
Everyone has heard the term reduce, reuse, and recycle. Think of this slogan as a jumping-off point. Reducing our own personal waste is a great first step. The average person can create over 1,500 pounds of waste in a year. Minimizing this waste by reusing simple objects like glass containers or reusable water bottles helps reduce that waste.
Thinking green can become a habit just like any other. Thirty days of conscious purchases and actively trying to minimize waste is an effective way to start living a more sustainable lifestyle.
