Forget To Celebrate Earth Day?


Forgot To Celebrate Earth Day? Here Are Four Tips To Help Out The Earth

Stop Using Bottled Water:
Did you know that it takes 26 bottles of water to produce the plastic container for a one-liter bottle of water, and that doing so pollutes 25 liters of groundwater? Stop buying bottled water. Use reusable water bottles instead made from materials like stainless steel or aluminum that are not likely to degrade over time.

Run A Fully Loaded Dishwasher: If you have dishwasher, use it. Running a fully loaded dishwasher -- without prerinsing the dishes -- can use a third less water than washing the dishes by hand, saving up to 10 to 20 gallons of water a day.

Avoid Waste: Recycle: For every trash can of waste you put outside for the trash collector, about 70 trash cans of waste are used in order to create that trash. To reduce the amount of waste you produce, buy products in returnable and recyclable containers and recycle as much as you can.

Give Up Paper And Plastic Bags: Do you opt for paper or plastic when at the grocery store? Neither is a good choice. Go and purchase reusable shopping bags made of cotton, nylon or durable, mesh-like plastic to help preserve the Earth.
