Eco-friendly Life Hacks
It's easy to get overwhelmed by all the things we can do (or aren’t doing) to help the environment, let’s take it one step at a time. We’ve compiled some simple ideas with a big impact that are easy for anyone to implement or at least try!
GO VEGETARIAN FOR A DAY
With animal agriculture being one of the leading causes of climate change, going vegetarian for just ONE day a week can make a huge difference. It takes anywhere from 1500 to 2000 gallons of water to make just one pound of beef.
INVEST A IN A REUSABLE WATER BOTTLE AND / OR COFFEE CUP
When you’re constantly on the go, we often forget how much waste builds up with that daily (or sometimes multiple times a day) coffee run.
Give your garden a good breakfast; coffee grounds and eggshells are ideal for composting.
