how to help the earth! 🐝
hi! so since our planet is rapidly dying and declining :( i decided to post about how you can help the environment!
1. use l.e.d lightbulbs
these are expensive, so i know that not everyone can afford them (not even i can, but i’m saving). these last a lot longer than normal lightbulbs. no energy is dissipated into the atmosphere and therefore none is wasted! (yay physics!)
2. metal straws!!
metal straws reduce waste since they’re reusable and last long! fyi though, a lovely YouTuber called Jessica Kellgren-Fozard did a video on how people with disabilities need plastic straws (hence why they were invented in the first place). so, i know not everyone can use plastic straws and that’s okay! 💛
3. use reusable bags when shopping
a pretty obvious one, but stop using plastic bags (or start to reuse them, either way). buy reusable bags and start using them to reduce waste!
4. or, use eco friendly bags instead!
5. stop using pesticides and insecticides
these are so harmful to pollinators!! (i.e. BEES). please, please look up alternatives to pesticides. they are so harmful to bees, insects which are on the verge of extinction. there is an alternative i’ve heard of that you can try: use coffee! bugs aren’t attracted to the smell at all and it doesn’t kill pollinators so your flowers can still bloom! 🌸✨
if you love books, try using your local library! they also have computers, audio books, movies and lots of different media. take advantage of the free resources around you!
if you see litter, pick it up. take a (reusable) plastic bag and maybe when out and about just pick up rubbish on the ground. clean up your environment. make it more beautiful!
there are of course a lot more things you can do to help save the environment. these are just a few variety of things that you could do!
if you have any more, please add to the list
