Earth Day is April 22 – “Small Changes – Big Results”

We can all make some little changes to our daily lives to create big changes in our environment. Just using a cloth grocery bag on a daily basis saves sea life, reduces our consumption of vital energy resources to produce plastic bags, and reduces landfills and pollution to our planet. Read more below on how to live green in honor of Earth Day!

According to the EPA, between 500 billion and a trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide each year. These bags are used for an average of 12 minutes, but they remain in our landfills, oceans, parks and beaches for thousands of years. Both plastic and paper disposable bags are costly, environmentally damaging, and completely unnecessary. Source

If you do not drink water you can impair every aspect of your physiology, water is essential to life. The minimum requirement for a healthy body is 64 ounces per day The United States is the world’s leading consumer of bottled water, with Americans drinking 26 billion liters per year and rising. Save resources, money and environmental litter by using reusable water bottles.

Bottles used to package water take over 1,000 years to bio-degrade and if incinerated, they produce toxic fumes. It is estimated that over 80% of all single-use water bottles used in the U.S. simply become “litter.” Source 

How To Live Green

Keep several ecological shopping bags in your car and at the office to use instead of plastic bags.

There are so many ways to have pure safe filtered drinking water that are economical and ecologically sound:

Save money and resources by filtering your own tap water:

  • Filtered water system under the sink
  • Whole house filter system
  • Convenient easy water filter on your faucet
  • Water filter pitchers and individual tumblers
