At labelswap we believe every day is Earth Day, but that doesn’t stop us from celebrating a little! We are passionate about our planet and believe in doing everything we can to reduce our footprint on the earth. Round up your friends and get ready to celebrate the earth, it is her day after all!
1. Plan a beach clean up
Beach clean ups are more needed right now then they are all year! From springbreakers to summer visitors, Florida’s beaches often get littered with bottles, cigarettes, and snack wrappers. Grab a roll of trash bags and a pair of gloves and schedule a beach clean up to help take care of our wildlife and beaches.
2. Fix leaky faucets in your home to reduce water consumption.
This is a win-win, as you reduce your water consumption, but also save money on your water bill!
3. Visit a farmer’s market
Farmer’s markets can be so much fun and purchasing local supports the farmers in your area while reducing the need for transportation energy and fossil fuels.
4. Plant something
Did you know that trees can help decrease a city’s temperature by up to 10 degrees? They also clean the air and give off more oxygen, among a ton of other benefits! Time to workout your green thumb.
5. Buy reusable bags
Reusable bags are great because they don’t break, they’re eco-friendly, and they carry way more! What’s not to love?
6. Go on a thrifting spree
You knew we were going to say it! Fast fashion accounts for 10% of all carbon emissions in the world and is the second largest industry when it comes to pollution behind the oil industry, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to why it’s not the best option. Shop resale and decrease the need for fast fashion.
