My Top Ways to Celebrate Earth Day Everyday!
Todays the day we celebrate the Earth and what a mighty fine place it is to live. Today I celebrated by using my stashed bags to pack myself snacks to use between personal training clients and teaching Orange Theory Classes. I also used my stainless steel straw for my morning coffee, and am keeping myself hydrated with my refillable water bottle.
I have decided to share with you all the ways I like to help keep the Earth a clean place to live and some of my favorite products that help me do just that!
Below are my top 8 ways to do so and the links in blue that you can click and buy right from the comfort of your own home!
1.Re-useable Zip Lock Bags: Instead of buying the regular sip locks that you use once and throw away try re-useable versions. This will cut down on waste and you can use them for almost anything. I like to use mine for on the go snacks, pens, steaming shrimp or veggies in hot water, and storing jewelry when I travel.
My favorite: Stasher Bags
2. Stainless Steel or Glass Straws: I love to use these in my morning coffee to avoid staining my teeth and its less toxic than plastic straws.
