5 Tips on How to Support our Mother Earth
It is easy to detach ourselves from the pressing nature of climate change when the changes may seem miniscule to us. The sad reality is, over 90% of people in the world are exposed to toxic air resulting from the burning of fossil fuels (WHO). At least 89% of 10,500 ingredients used in self-care products have not been evaluated for safety by any publicly accountable institution (EWG). Our refusal to consume environmentally friendly products is one of many reasons scientists have recently found microplastics in our bloodstream.
Nobody is thrilled by the idea of these microplastics floating in our body. In light of Earth Day this April, here is a reminder that if you take care of yourself sustainably, you also take care of the world around you.
Below are 5 tips on how we can support our Mother Earth.
Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle
The triple R’s are sustainability’s holy trinity that we hear about on the daily. Even as individuals, there is much we can do to help combat waste. Reduce waste by using reusable Glassware in the kitchen, and recycle the waste you throw away. Remember to flip the light switch off when you leave the room. Turn the faucet off while you clean your teeth.
Volunteering at local green initiatives is a great way to connect as a community to bring about positive change. If you live near a beach, join a beach cleaning program (or start one yourself!). Help charities plant trees in your area. If you’re a busy bee and don’t have the time to get your hands muddy, support charities like Ecosia that plant trees for every click at your search engine. Easy peasy.
Use Eco-Friendly Transport
A typical passenger vehicle emits about 4.6 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. You can help reduce this by using public transportation, or if possible, bike and walk everywhere to reduce your waste to 0. Not only will you reduce your carbon footprint by walking, you will also boost your health and mental wellbeing by getting some exercise done in the great outdoors. Nothing like a mood booster than a healthy dose of what mother nature has to offer!
Be conscious of the decisions you make as a consumer. It isn’t enough to reduce your own carbon footprint – the vast majority of greenhouse gases are emitted by big companies and major production lines. Find out which companies make a conscious effort to improve sustainability and support them instead.
Use Organic Products
Some companies manage to hide under the radar when it comes to their carbon footprint. While it might seem that their factories don’t produce a lot of waste, chemical products are always harmful to the environment when disposed. Also, chemical skin care.
Don’t send chemicals into our waterways. Choose non-toxic ingredients also for your home and office. When it comes to your precious skin, shop with JK7® and make a conscious decision to use only naturally grown, organic ingredients. You can kill two birds with one stone by being conscious of both your health and the health of the world around you.
