Going green in 2019

Are you itching to make a change in 2019? Consider becoming an environmentalist by consciously decreasing your carbon footprint. Here are some ways to do so:

  • Use reusable grocery bags when you shop. Some markets will even give you a discount for bringing your own bags.
  • Try to avoid purchasing new clothes. Instead, find hand-me-downs or shop for secondhand apparel.
  • Decrease your meat consumption. Meat packing plants release considerable methane gas into our atmosphere, which contributes to global warming.
  • Be a conscious consumer and only purchase household necessities.
  • Compost your unwanted food waste instead of throwing it out.
  • Conserve water and don’t let it run when you wash food, brush your teeth, wash your hands or clean your dishes.
  • Limit your air travel when possible.
  • Ask for no straw at local restaurants.
  • Buy in bulk to reduce purchasing one-use plastic and packaging (cereal, coffee, beans, rice, pasta, nuts, etc.).
  • Go paperless by paying your bills online, sending letters via email, etc.
  •  Line dry your clothing instead of using energy to dry them in a drier.
