Happy Earth Day!

Hello and Happy Earth Day! I also want to wish a happy third birthday to my little pal Beau (pictured below) who shares a birthday with the Earth!

Environmental wellness is so important. Here are a few easy things you can do today or in the upcoming weeks to enhance your environmental well-being!

  • Bike or walk the next time you go out for errands
  • Plant a garden and if you don’t have much space, consider a windowsill garden
  • Buy from local farmers
  • Support a local business the next time you need to purchase a gift
  • Bring reusable grocery bags to the store
  • Switch to compact florescent lightbulbs
  • Unplug cell phone chargers or computer chargers when not in use
  • Use cold water whenever possible when doing laundry
  • Get a drying rack and dry jeans and other clothing outside the dryer

I think it’s definitely possible for you to accomplish one of these challenges on Earth Day! What do you do to help reduce your carbon footprint?
