Happy Earth Day! 🌎 I’m of the mindset that small changes can make a big impact. It’s not about perfection either. I’m working on my sustainability efforts. I have such a long way to go, but each day I’m trying and learning. A lot of the items in my home are vintage or from the thrift store. I love showcasing items with a story.
Here are some things I’ve been doing that may work for you, too:
〰️ Shopping secondhand, locally and from small shops. Shopping sustainable brands. Appreciating what you already own.
〰️ Reducing paper, junk mail, catalogs, etc.
〰️ Unplugging electronics
〰️ Being more energy efficient: open windows, use blankets, hand wash more, hang dry clothes, only full loads, air dry hair, remove single use wipes, etc.
〰️ Cleaning up beaches and not buying products that harm
〰️ Shopping farmers market. Growing veggies and herbs in your yard (this is a major goal this year).
〰️ Vintage and thrifted decor and books
〰️ Using less plastic
〰️ Reuse more
〰️ Educating and empowering my children about all of these things.
Again, I’m not perfect but it’s about small changes I can maintain and work for my family. Share some easy things you do to be more kind to the planet.
