Your Morning Routine Might Be Bad For The Environment
With Earth Day on Sunday, maybe now is the time for you to evaluate what you might be doing to harm the environment. Bustle says that there are some ways (that you may not be thinking about) that you can improve your morning routine to help the Earth.
- Packing your lunch in plastic which is definitely convenient, and it is probably something that you've done forever, but consider a reusable bag next time. Not only will you save money in the long run, but it will help keep plastic out of our landfills.
- Keeping your phone chargers plugged in when you're not at home or using the charger can suck electricity. Similarly, so can leaving the lights on when you're not home. Turn these things into habits! You'll save money and help the planet!
- Leaving the water running while you brush your teeth because it's the little things that count. It may be just a little bit of water, but it adds up day after day.
With all of the great modern conveniences that we've become accustomed to, it's hard to think of the impact that we have on the world around us. Think before you do things (or don't do things), and you could make a big difference!
