At this point hopefully you realize that we need to band together to make a change in our day to day lifestyles to help our planet. The problem is when dealing with such a large issue like climate change, it can be hard to find a place to start. Here are a few simple, easy ways to get take action into your own hands.
Biodegradable Poop Bags for Dogs
We all love our dogs! But when your furry friend goes number two a few times a day, those plastic bags add up quickly. I bought a huge box of biodegradable poop bags for my dogs and I haven’t looked back since.

Reusable Water Bottle
This is a standard but easy one. I admit I used to (and unfortunately sometimes still do) buy plastic bottles. But here’s the thing – I spent five minutes of my day, and $10 to go on Amazon and buy a reusable water bottle. No joke, it changed my life! I felt really good about doing it, I stopped buying plastic water bottles, and on top of that, I was way more hydrated.

Bike, Walk, and Carpool (Or buy a Tesla)
As much as I’d love to buy a Tesla or another electronic vehicle, at this time it’s not an option, but I still wanted to make a difference. I made an active decision to try to stop driving in my car as much as possible. When you actively try to coordinate walking, biking, or carpooling places, you realize how much unnecessary driving you were doing. The best part about this – you’re saving money on gas.

Most importantly – continue to educate yourself and be aware of the impact you are having on the Earth. Everything matters and your help and support are greatly appreciated.
