Pick Up Trash While on a Walk
While you are out for a stroll, pick up a one piece of garbage every time. You don’t need to tote home with arms full of refuse, but if there’s a paper cup on the ground, and a trash receptacle nearby, why not take ten seconds to make the area a little cleaner?
Use Tote Bags for Groceries
Plastic bags are a significant environmental issue, causing problems to wildlife, as well as creating a major eyesore when they are found in parks, forests, rivers, and lakes. They can be such a nuisance that many have proposed banning the bags altogether.
Volunteer On Cleanup Day
If you feel that your small steps simply aren’t enough, you could join a larger force, such as a cleanup day. Communities and organizations, of all sizes and in all sections of the country, are looking for volunteers to assist with projects as simple as garbage cleanup, tree planting, or recycling.
Reduce One-Use Plastic
While throw away bottles and plastics are extremely convenient, they have become a significant environmental issue. These plastics are added to our landfills, and many are found as floating trash in rivers, lakes, and oceans. Instead of one-use plastic, use reusable containers like glass or stainless steel.
Recycle EVERYTHING, Including Our Cans
Recycling is essential to reducing waste. If you can recycle a can, box, lid, or letter, do so. This includes the cans of our cascara tea, a natural and flavorful beverage that has no preservatives and no artificial flavorings!
