Here are some tips for going green in your daily routine. Some may be easy, while others may be more challenging. But if a change is made, you’re going green actions can leave a lasting impact on what our environment may be like in the future.
Eat smart: Buy local and seasonal, or grow your own if you are able to do so. If you make a conscious effort to cook from scratch and use all your groceries while buying your seasonal vegetables and fruits at a farmer’s markets, and buying your meats from the local butcher instead of shopping at a big named supermarket, you are actively taking a huge chunk out of your carbon footprint.
Be conscious of what you buy: It’s easy to overlook the amount of waste we create when we are not paying attention. Cutting down on purchasing large amounts of items with packaging if there are is a no package alternative while we make a conscious effort to recycle what we can will create a less cluttered lifestyle and influence the younger generation to follow.
