There Is No Planet B

As we become more and more environmentally aware, most of us finally understand how important it is that we do our part to save our planet. It is crucial that we prioritize protecting our land, water, air, and wildlife.  

We are the first generation to feel the effect of climate change,
and the last who can do something about it.”
Barack Obama

Thankfully, today’s youth have become the biggest advocates for environmental awareness.  They increasingly use the collective power of their voices to push their communities towards adopting environmentally friendly policies and practices.

 

There are many things we can all do to help protect our environment. When shopping, we can bring our own reusable bags and avoid buying items that are packaged in plastic. We can buy in bulk when possible, and try to plan a few vegetarian meals per week.

Fill a reusable water bottle and use reusable lunch containers when heading to work or school. Try to use paper wisely and reuse it when possible. Switch to electronic statements and pay your bills online. Turn off and unplug electric devices when not using them. Adjust the temperature inside the home. Try washing full loads of laundry and hanging clothes to dry outside on a nice day. Install low-flow plumbing fixtures for less water waste and encourage your family to have shorter showers and less baths. Recycle what you can when you can and perhaps even try your hand at composting. Your garden will thank you!

Studies show that what we consume contributes close to a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions and is responsible for almost 60% of global biodiversity loss. Farming animals for meat and dairy requires space and huge amounts of water and feed. One of the biggest contributors to forest loss is the expansion of agricultural land for animal feed production, such as

To avoid wasting food, get creative with leftovers and come up with interesting meals with ingredients you have on hand. It is estimated that a third of all food produced in the world is lost or wasted.

We need to do better.

Use your voice and speak up. Talk to your MP about your environmental concerns and show support for their actions that protect our natural world. Contact the brands you love and encourage them to switch to more environmentally friendly packaging, to ethically source ingredients, to produce products in a sustainable way, and to use less packaging when shipping. Support brands that are eco-friendly and have reuse-it programs with the proper recycling protocols in place.

Making changes to the way we shop, eat, reuse, recycle, and reduce can have a big impact on where our natural world is headed. We all need to do our part. Together, we can make a difference and protect our planet.
