How to go green
How I did it: 1. Started shopping at a grocery store where you need to take your own recyclable bags (or boxes).
2. Take advantage of passive solar lighting opportunities.
3. If I need something and its used and in good condition, I’ll buy it. It’s better than paying retail.
4. Learning how to sew and make my own things. This has the potential to save money on clothing, gifts, and decorating your home too.
5. I’m also trying not to buy prepackaged food if I can help it. I recently found out how much price difference there is in the cost of prepackaged versus fresh foods. It is not worth paying for the convenience when all you get is extra fat, sodium, and harmful chemicals
Lessons & tips: This is just a small list, but even the smallest changes, when enough people do them can have a positive impact. Try to reduce what you put into the Earth by reducing the amount of chemicals you pour down the drain or onto the ground. All of this makes its way right into the ground water.
Resources: Take an environmental science course, participate in citizen science, wherever you are:
