ALL GREEN EVERYTHING: EARTH DAY EVERYDAY

Yay it's Earth Day! On this beautiful April 22nd, we wanted to thank Mother Nature by giving you tips & tricks on how to be more eco-friendly in your everyday life.

There are so many things we can do to make our footprint less damaging on this planet, and most of these things don't cost a thang & don't require much effort! #greenmachine

Let's get started.


HANG UP TO DRY

Get a clothesline or a rack to air dry your clothes. Not only will they keep their fit and maintain their color longer, but you will also save some ca$h! You can even let them dry next to your favourite scents for tantalizing smells all day err day.



USE REUSABLE BAGS

We all have them stashed away at our house or in our locker/car. So...use them! They're way easier to carry just about anything, and they look way better than plastic bags.

HOST A CLOTHES SWAP PARTY

It’s not only an excuse to clean your closet (when's the last time you wore that?!), but a way to recycle your clothes while having a blast with your friends! Gather some friends with cool style & ask them to bring their unworn or unused clothes, start trading and voila!! You now have a new wardrobe AND mother nature is defs very proud of you.



SHUT DOWN YOUR COMPUTER AT NIGHT

Because it's good for your computer and because it uses less energy, shutting down your computer aka life will save you some dollar bills in the end. If you're the forgetting type, you can configure your computer to hibernate rather than just go to sleep.


HAVE A NO BATH WEEK

TIME FOR SHOWERS! Because it's faster, cleaner, and uses about three times less water. Baths are fun, but not all the time. Skip the pruny skin and stand under the jet instead.


INSTEAD OF BOTTLED WATER... INVEST IN A MUG OR TUMBLER

Buy a reusable water and coffee container. It's a great choice for the environment, your wallet AND it keeps your beverage the right temperature a lot longer! Plus, extra points for cuteness #aintcomplainin.


WRAP YOUR CREATIVITY

When you need to wrap a best friend's gift, use your creativity! Wrap it in newspapers or magazine pages to give it some uniqueness. Be creative and funny! It will make the unwrapping a super fun moment. 


CARPOOLING AND PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

Having less cars on the road means reduced gas emissions (and LBH, also less traffic & quicker commuting). When you want to carpool but don't know anyone that's going your way you can rely on different apps like carpooling.com! If you hitch a ride with your buds, you can chat & sing all the way to your destination. Road trip, anyone?



PLANT A TREE

Put on your socks and your sandals, guys, it's hippie time! Just kidding... planting trees is awesome! It's like having a pet that never moves, but you can watch it grow into something amazing!! More trees means more oxygen, so don't be shy!


BUY LOCAL

Going to a farmer's market not only helps the local economy, but on a larger scale helps cut down on transportation pollution. Plus, local fruits, veggies & flowers smell fresh as can be and look so good.


Finally, SPREAD THE WORD!! Share this article with your friends on Facebook! Let's make a change as a community!
