Earth Day 2018
Weekend before last was Earth Day 2018, a celebration of our beautiful planet and it’s amazing resources. This year’s theme was all about ending plastic pollution and the impact of the choices we make every day. When deciding where to shop, choose companies that produces less waste, uses less energy and helps keep the air and water cleaner.
According to the Earth Day Network, plastic pollution is one of the most important environmental problems we face today. We produce nearly 30 billion tons of plastic each year which never fully degrades in the environment, and means every item of plastic you have ever used still exists.
The company I am partnered with has saved 22 million pounds of plastic, 42 million gallons of gasoline and 48 million pounds of greenhouse gas since 1985. It feels good to know I am doing my part to help keep the earth a cleaner place. You can do your part too. Choose where you shop carefully.
What else you can do:
- Recycle your plastics
- Buy concentrated products
- Reuse containers
- Reduce your plastic pollution footprint. Take the Ecological Footprint Quiz.
