Not hard at all! Recycle newspapers, magazines, pop cans, tin cans, and plastic bottles!
2. Use "for here" cups instead of "to go" cups when you're at a coffee shop.
I always do this when I go to Starbucks or any Coffee Shop. They give you a
mug instead of a plastic cup. It saves plastic from going into landfills, and I think
it tastes better in a mug!
3. Shop at thrift stores instead of buying brand new things.
When you need new clothes, or household items, find them at a thrift store instead of
buying brand new things! You'll save things from going into landfills, and get them for
super cheap too!
4. Donate your old clothes and other household items to a thrift store.
Instead of throwing your old things away, donate them to a thrift store, or put
them on freecycle.
I am definitely NOT going to get into the whole legalization of marijuana thing. I am
not talking about weed, supporting it or against it. What I am just saying, is that
what Henry Ford said above is SO TRUE! Hemp is a sustainable, smart resource to use!
"For thousands of years, humans have used parts of the hemp plant for food,
textiles, paper, fabric, and fuel oil. Today, modern processing technologies have made
it possible to create alternatives to gasoline, plastic, and other petroleum products that
can help the human race lessen its reliance on polluting and expensive fossil fuels.
The hemp plant is a renewable resource that can be produced domestically. It grows
quickly, naturally resists plant diseases, requires little weeding, thrives in most climates,
and enriches the soil it grows in. "
Read here for more information on this amazing plant, and start buying hemp products.
(I could just go on and on about this. Hmmm...maybe I'll hafta write an article about it
6. Stop using paper towels.
Paper towels is one of the biggest wastes ever! You buy sumthing just to turn around and
throw it away! Instead, cut up old t-shirts and use them as rags! After wiping up a spill,
you can just rinse it off and wring it out! And just wash in the washer instead of throwing
away, filling our landfill with more unnecessary waste!
7. Start carrying your own reusable, to go cup.
I take mine everywhere. Not only does it make it easier to drink enough water a day,
but I use it instead of getting paper cups at fast food places.
8. Make your own Recycled Paper!
Turn off lights when you leave a room, turn off the running water when you're brushing
your teeth, simple things like that, that make a huge difference.
