The best holiday of the year is right around the corner! Yes, we’re talking about Earth Day. Root + Heart is dedicated to a sustainable lifestyle, and we hope to encourage you all to do the same. Don’t worry, it’s easier than you think! The biggest impacts on the world can come from simple changes at the individual level.
If you’re ready to honor our precious planet and make a positive impact on the environment, keep reading. We’re sharing five easy yet impactful ways to celebrate Earth Day.
Volunteer in Your Community
With a little bit of effort and research, you’ll realize just how many opportunities there are to get involved in your local community. You can volunteer at a beach cleanup, organize a group to plant trees together, or create a community recycling program. The options are endless! Not only will you be doing something to better the future of our planet, but you’ll be connecting with other like-minded people who are also on a mission to make a difference. It’s a win-win.
Shop Reusable Products
Single-use products, such as plastic sandwich bags and saran wrap, create an abundance of unnecessary landfill waste. Use this Earth Day to take inventory of the single-use items in your home and make a plan to replace them with reusable products. Not sure where to start? Shop the Root + Heart Beeswax Wraps and Root + Heart Dryer Balls!
Choose Eco for a Day
There’s no better time than Earth Day to start living an eco-friendly lifestyle. Start your morning by bringing your own mug and straw to your local coffee shop instead of using the single-use paper ones they provide. Do your best to bike or walk everywhere if possible If you need a car to get somewhere, use a rideshare program or public transportation! Make sure to bring your own shopping bag to the grocery store, then cook all plant-based meals. Try implementing practices like this into your everyday life even after the day is done. The Earth will love you for it!
Spend Time Outdoors
Nowadays, it can be difficult to unplug from your phone and get outside. But make a commitment this Earth Day to do just that. Enjoy a picnic in the park, watch the sunset and meditate at the beach, or go for a hike and appreciate nature’s beauty. You’re sure to feel more grounded, peaceful, and connected to the Earth at the end of it.
Educate Friends and Family
One of the best contributions you can make to the Earth is educating the people around you on how to protect it. Send them this blog post, buy eco-friendly Root + Heart products, or simply have a conversation about the small changes you both can make each day. The more people who know about our impact on the environment, the more we can work together to create a sustainable life for all.
