Building easy habits... Earth, we love you!

"We all have one thing in common, and that's Earth."


I absolutely love Earth Day for multiple reasons other than the fact that I study weather every single day. One of the major reasons I love Earth Day is because I like to see everyone post these amazing and sometimes mundane pictures of earth in all its glory. The world is truly a fascinating place!


With that being said, nothing ruins a beautiful view more than those earth damaging impacts. Here are just a few super easy ways to build some brand new eco-friendly habits to your routine, and believe me, they are almost completely S-E-A-M-L-E-S-S. Some of this ideas actually sound quite fun.

  • Use metal straws (these are bomb).

  • Eat locally (YES! Just another reason to shop local).

  • Skip meat once a week ( or more if you don't particularly care for it).

  • Buy that $1 reusable shopping bag and USE IT (T.J. Maxx has really cute ones).

  • Add some pretty and air purifying plants to your home décor.

  • Hang clothes instead of drying them in the machine (this can also save you $$$).

  • Purchase that expensive coffee machine and make your signature drink from home.

  • Use your devices for notes instead of paper.

  • Shut down the computer at the end of your work day.

  • Switch those lightbulbs to LED or eco-friendly bulbs.

  • Do not turn lights on until necessary (this also saves you $$$).

  • Keep the door closed to air-conditions rooms (trap in the chill).

  • Believe it or not, use the dishwasher (make sure it's fully loaded first).

  • Buy cleaning supplies and toiletries in bulk.

  • Clean and declutter your home.

  • Swap plastic to go containers for glass ones (they even last longer).

  • Wash your clothes in cold water (some washers even have an "eco" option).

  • Pay your bills online.

  • Skip makeup days when possible.

  • Shop locally for farm fresh produce.

Don't forget to look up today. The sky has a way of reminding you that "everything will work out just fine."


Thanks friends,
