Happy Earth Day!
The earth is such a healing place, it's important we are conscious about how we treat the environment. When we throw something away, it's removed from your sight, but that doesn't mean it's gone.
Genevieve Folkedahl shares a list of plastic-free items that make an impact and keep plastics out of the oceans and landfills:
1. Bring a stainless steel straw, or ask for no straw.
We use 500 million straws per day in America, many of which end up in the ocean.
2. Bring a reusable water bottle with you wherever you go.
America uses approximately one million disposable water bottles per minute. For this reason, we will no longer have plastic cups available at the studio. We ask that you bring a reusable bottle.
3. Keep a set of utensils
4. Buy in Bulk or bring your own bag
Shop at places where you can bring your own containers such as the co-op or the farmer's markets. Everything from your spinach container, to spices, to grocery bags.
