5 Ways to Do Your Part This Earth Day

Today is Earth Day and here at Seed, we'd like to share five of our favorite ways to do your part for the environment not just on April 22, but every single day of the year. Small changes can have a big impact!

 

1. Still have old lightbulbs? Make the switch to LED or compact fluorescent bulbs. These bulbs last, on average, up to 15 times longer and consume 1/5 to 1/3 of the electricity.

2. Eliminate junk mail. There are apps now that can actually help you reduce your carbon footprint. How? With these apps, you snap a photo of the junk mail you do not wish and it removes you from the mailing list.

3. Did you know that there are over a TRILLION plastic bags out there? Carry reusable shopping bags. 

4. Do you grab a coffee in the drive-thru on your way to work? Think of the amount of cups you are tossing out each week. Most coffee shops have their own reusable travel mugs you can buy and will offer you a discount if you refill them. You don’t have to skip your drive-thru coffee and you will be helping the earth.

5. When you are doing the laundry, wash clothes in cold water. Not only will this save lots of energy, but cold water is better for your clothes. Really? Yes! Check out this great article we found in Smithsonian Magazine.
