Earth Week 13

Living sustainably is essential to ensure the future of humanity on Earth. While drastic changes are often hard to make, there are many small adjustments you could make to your daily routines which can have a large impact on the environment. Plastic is only becoming an increasingly common item in our everyday lives. From bottles to electronics, plastics are becoming a cornerstone of consumer products, which is extremely dangerous to the environment. Whenever possible, try to use reusable bags for groceries. Bringing your own bag eliminates the need to use a plastic one. Similarly, using reusable bottles and straws for drinks can make a large impact. Turning off the lights when you leave a room is also a simple adjustment you can make to reduce the use of non-renewable resources that are harmful to the environment. On the topic of lighting, replacing your incandescent light bulbs with LEDs can help reduce the energy being consumed. I hope these tips can help you live more sustainably! – Vishnu Mano (“Makua Cave” by Marvin Chandra is licensed under CC BY-NC-ND 2.0)
