Earth Day this year is April 22.
It’s a day to reflect on our personal practices, find ways to do better and to get outside, enjoy nature. It’s also the perfect time to pick up some trash hidden by winter’s ice and snow.
We’ve put together a bit of Earth Day inspiration for you. We hope our list helps you feel connected and inspired by the work of others.
@randomactsofgreen, their mission is building a global climate action community to help folks feel empowered to take action.
@kittiekipper, I believe Kittie (don't actually know if that's her name) lives in (I think) Cornwall . I might be short on life details but she collects crap from the beaches, mostly fishing line and ghost nets and turns them into incredible art. She is inspiring and talented.
"Ethically Kate" is a New Zealand influencer that shares her personal eco-journey. She writes in a positive way about sustainable living and finding joy in our every day life. It’s also fun to read about everyday life in new Zealand- imagine going to the beach and swimming most days!
I love "Pre-loved Podcast" because I still have the day dream of being a fashion designer or at least a contestant on Project Runway. I enjoy Emily’s weekly interviews with a global twist. The personal stories from England to Peru are a bit of travel and escape during these weird times and the focus of every podcast is getting away from fast fashion and embracing preloved clothing.
A Few of our Favorite Products
Vegan Dish Soap- bubbles and cleans without any plastic. Very long lasting.
Shampoo bars- as a former hair product junkie my switch to shampoo bars has eliminated not just plastic bottle clutter in my shower but plastic bottles in landfills. It can take awhile to find the perfect bar for your hair but the search is worth it.
Luffa sponges- made from the luffa plant these sponges are quite scrubby and when they get worn put 'em in your compost pile. So much better than plastic based ones.
Straw and Tin- I love to sip an iced coffee drink on a hot summer day and this straw is perfect. It's wide so very easy to clean without any special tools.
