Recycle.

Whether you’re in the habit of recycling or not, this is always important to bring up when talking about being kind to the planet. There’s more to it than simply throwing your paper into the recycling bin, though! Learn more about recycling, what you can recycle, and the processes that go into it from Waste Management.

 

Reduce waste.

Recycling your (recyclable) products is just one way you can in a very big and impactful way reduce the amount of waste you contribute to landfills. However, there are other ways you can do this! Recycle or reuse items you might otherwise throw out. Give away or sell clothes you no longer need, and shop from thrift stores, looking for specific items you love and need instead of just impulse buying anything that looks good.

 

And look for other ways to reduce waste. Make a meal plan, use reusable containers and shopping bags, learn to fix your things before throwing them away, and turn to minimalism for a cleaner home life. Adopt some of the habits from these 100 Tips for a Zero Waste Home to save energy and lower your carbon footprint.

 

Make wise transportation decisions.

Walking, biking, carpooling, or using local transportation cuts down on the extra pollution you may be contributing to the air by driving yourself. Plus, walking and biking are good for your body, and using local transportation options supports the community and gives further cause for the city to invest in making these options available to people who need it!
