The biggest thing that readers can do to help the environment is to turn off lights when they’re not being used, turn off running water when it’s not being used, recycle when needed, and not litter. It’s the most basic things that I and others do in our daily lives to live more sustainably. (“Approaching Jamaica” by somegeekintn is licensed under CC BY 2.0)

A big thing that many people actually do incorrectly without knowing it is recycling. It is very important to recycle correctly. This includes knowing what can and can’t be recycled and making sure the items you put in the recycling bin are rinsed or washed clean. Our recycling systems need a lot of work, but it comes down to the […]

Educate yourself on items that your recycling company accepts and thoroughly clean out containers before recycling. To me, living sustainably at it’s core is simply being aware of the impact your actions can have on the environment, and taking the initiative to reduce that impact. Everything helps.

Personally, living sustainably means choosing alternatives that are reusable and create the least waste possible. However, disposing of our waste is just as important as well. One fun and interesting way to make your daily routine more sustainable is by compacting your garbage into eco bricks. An eco brick is a plastic water bottle packed tightly with plastic waste, and […]

One easy way that my family and I make our daily routines more sustainable is by composting. Composting helps to make nutrient rich soil while reducing landfill waste. It’s wonderful for the environment, and it’s super easy! What I like to do is keep a bowl in the kitchen to put leftover meal scraps or vegetable stems into, then when […]

It’s the little things. Save energy by turning off the lights after leaving the room. Being sustainable is eating less meat. It’s reusing. It’s using less paper. It’s donating. There are two main themes here: using less and upcycling more. These two can make a huge difference in not only your life, but the lives of future generations. – Romy […]

Some easy ways to help the environment are to pick up any litter you see in public (be careful of glass, wear gloves!), or to make an effort to recycle things instead of dumping them straight in the trash. Bringing a single reusable water bottle rather than using a bunch of plastic ones also is a great help in helping […]

I believe that reduction is the most impactful method to make people’s daily routines more sustainable because our American lifestyle consists of an overwhelming amount of intaking our Earth’s resources. The more we reduce in our daily lives the less negative impact we have on our environment and the closer we come to living sustainably. Impactful reduction methods are cutting […]
