It’s easy to care about the wellbeing of the environment, but much harder to ensure your actions reflect your words. Even more so when you’re on a tight budget.Yet, there are plenty of things you can do to reduce your ecological footprint and contribute to altering our society’s treatment of the planet. Alex and I were recently inspired by a woman who has produced less than 1 mason jar filled with trash in two years….have you seen the video? If not, go watch it now.
Let’s be clear…Alex and I are not setting that lofty a goal for ourselves, its all about baby steps! But that video did help us realize that there are a lot more things we can be doing. It helped inspire us to make even more of an effort to be environmentally conscious by changing little things in our daily routines and living practices.
We’re recent college graduates. I work for a nonprofit and Alex is an intern with the National Parks Service while he applies to graduate school. AKA we are not rolling in cash. But we are determined to do what we can with what we have!
Interested in reducing your ecological footprint and making more environmentally friendly decisions? If we can do it, so can you! The first step is simply being conscious of wanting to be more environmentally friendly and keep this in mind throughout the day when making decisions and going about your routine.
