Going Green Check List

Tips of the week:

1. Start a compost bin for all your fruit, vegetable, and coffee ground waste. Add this to your garden and watch it flourish. You won’t only have a healthy and nourished garden, but you’ll also save hundreds of pounds of organic waste from entering landfills.

2. Recycle your glass jars at home by storing food in them as apposed to the traditional way of storing food in plastic containers. This will lower health risks associated with plastic chemical contamination in food.

3. Invest in a good water filtration system for your home. The multiple benefits include:

  • You will save hundreds of dollar on bottled water during the course of the year
  • You will drink cleaner, purer, less contaminated water than what you get in bottled water
  • You reduce health risks associated with bottled water
  • You save our planet from more toxicity created by plastic. A large amount of plastic produced around the world ends up polluting our rivers, lakes, and oceans. The currents then break up the plastic into tiny pieces not visible to the eye, where it is ready to be digested by the fish we end up eating. Therefore, the plastic cycle starts by consumer demands, and then ends up back into our body, creating many health risks leading to premature death.

4. Recycle your junk mail or STOP receiving it altogether by following these simple steps:

  • Tape a ‘No Junk Mail’ or ‘No Ad Mail’ sign on your postbox.
  • If your sign is ignored, click here for more details
  •  The production of paper means more deforestation. It also means more air pollution since paper mills burn a tremendous amount of fossil fuels to produce substantial amounts of heat for the production of paper.

5. Reduce your use of aerosols as much as possible. Buy alternative packaged products when available.
