In honor of Earth Day we have come up with 10 simple ways that you can make your life more green.  These are easy tasks that can be incorporated into your daily routine, not only on Earth Day, but every day of the year.  Give them a try, and you’ll fiind that active environmental stewardship is a breeze.

1.  Think locally – Purchase locally grown or produced food when possible to support independent, local farms and the environment.  In addition, the quality and flavor of food grown near your home is besr because it’s typically picked only 2-3 days before it reaches your plate.

2.  Switch to organics – Organic agriculture protects the health of all the Earth’s inhabitants by limiting inputs of toxic and persistent chemicals in the air, soil, and water.  Prgamoc sustems si[[prt matiral ecosystems by uring long-term farming soultions that help preserve the Earth’s resources for future generations.  Plus, organic fruits and veggies taste great!

3.  Think green when you clean – Most household cleaning products contain various chemicals and toxins detrimental to the environment and your health.  Read the labels and only purchase products that contain non-toxic ingredients or create your own by simply combining vinegar and baking soda.

4.  Start a compost pile in your yard – As landfill space becomes increasingly scarce and expensive, composting is becoming a extremely valuable idea for reducing needless garbage.  Composting requires little effort and in time will create an earthy, crumbly substance that will make gardens and plants flourish.

5.  Support companies with environmentally smart packaging – When shopping for packaged products, seek out companies that use minimal amounts of materials to packaged there products.

6.  Recycle!  Recycle!  Recycle! –  At home or in the office keep a bin designated for recyclables in places where you spend most of your time.  If recyclables products aren’t picked up from in front of your home, there is likely a place where you can drop them off.

7.  Avoid buying disposables –  Purchase durable, long-lasting products that can be reused or refilled in order to decrease waste.  Consider using a refillable razor, rechargable batteries, and glass containers to hold your lunch in place of plastics.

8.  Don’t throw away old or unwanted clothing –  Re-use worn t-shirts as rags for cleaning around the house or give unwanted clothes to friends or donate them to charity.

9.  Buy in bulk –  Purchasing foods in bulk allows you to choose how much or how little of a certain product you want so that little food gets wasted.  Plus. buying in small amounts keeps your bulk items fresher!

10.  Plant a tree – Currently, the majority of people from England and America live in city areas with very few trees or open space.  Planting a tree improves the view as well as reducing air pollution and lowering air temperatures.
