Here are a few small ways I try and be green >
buy in bulk// hitting up this bulk foods section at the grocery store is a great way to cut down on the packaging you use, not to mention the ink it takes to make packages, the glue needed to shut them, etc., etc. Plus it saves money! Bonus points for bringing re-usable containers each time you go.
say no to plastic bags// I almost always have a reusable bag with me, and if I don't, I'll try and carry what I bought. I've been using re-usable sandwich bags at home, and recently bought a bunch of glass tupperware for portable lunches and things. We use bio-degradable plastic bags to pick up after the dog (I can't recommend these ones highly enough). Check here for more tips on saying no to plastic bags!
recycle// Duh. But I can't believe how many people I still see throwing away cans and glass on the regular! DO. IT.
campsite rule// leave it better than you found it. When you are out on a walk and see a wrapper caught in a bush, pocket it until you get to a trash can. Last year, my grandparents were honored by their community for doing just this, every day, on their daily walks. They were even featured in the paper! I am so proud of them!
These things are small, but they add up, especially if we all pitch in.
Be sure to tell the planet you love her today. <3
