Happy Earth Day! 🌍
It has been an interesting month with our daily lives put to a halt, yet Mother Earth is smiling at us as we stay home. From the canals in Italy to the Los Angeles skyline, our world has started to heal from all of the damage our Human Race has caused it to endure.
This won’t last forever, though.
We will eventually go back to our daily routine, and the pollution will start up again. Face masks have begun to flood the oceans and lakes, while friends of mine are doing their part to pick up litter during the quarantine. Nevertheless, being mindful at home and in our everyday actions play a big part in how our Earth continues to heal.
How do you already reduce your carbon footprint? Here are a few things I do on a daily basis- and although they’re not feasible for all, even a small part makes a big difference.
- Reusable K-cups- you can buy one for the price of a cup of coffee
- Walking- I haven’t driven a car since I moved to New York City in 2014!
- Painting on natural surfaces and recycled items instead of buying new materials
- Limiting my meat consumption and focusing on vegetables, grains, and fruit
- Using recycled tote bags when shopping- I can customize them for you, too 💫
Look out for some Earth Day rocks coming soon to Downtown Traverse City- I can’t wait for you all to see what I’ve been working on.
Although we may not think throwing a wrapper out the window or a cigarette on the ground is a big deal, those small things add up- so this Earth Day, please consider how even the tiniest effort make an impact.
