5 Things You Can Do To Help the Planet!

Does hearing about the state of Earth's climate make you wish you could help out the pressing problem? Well here are some quick and easy things you can do to help!


  1. Place a recycling bin in your room if you don't have one already

Or like me, if you don't want a separate bin, take a grocery bag and fill it up with any cans around your room! It may seem like a big task but it forms a great habit of separating trash and recycling.


2. Volunteer with friends and pick up trash

This is seriously so much fun! I do it all the time either by myself or with friends. We use it as our weekly outside time and it also feels so good to help the environment and see the results so quick!


3. Carpool with friends to school

Gas from cars is a major contributor to pollution, so if you happen to have a next door neighbor or good friend that will pick you up, try this mode of transportation!


4. Don't take part in fast fashion, go thrifting instead!

Instead of spending hours scrolling on websites trying to find the best deal, go to nearby thrift stores! It's a lot more fun and you can even end up spending less money! The savings will start adding up instantly!


5. Finally, invest in a reusable water bottle

Plastic water bottles are not only bad for your health, but also the environment. Going to your local Target and purchasing something like a hydroflask or camelback is a great move! Just a note, be careful not to get too many, that would defeat the entire purpose of it!

I hope all of these tips help you be more green! :)
