Blank Itinerary Goes Green for Earth Day

It’s Earth Day tomorrow! Recently, I had a conversation with a friend about how I could take small actions to be more sustainable and help the environment. Some are things I want to start doing specifically as a blogger, but others are things we can all do in our daily lives! In honor of Earth Day, I thought I would share some easy things we can all do to go a little “greener” and take care of this planet that is our only home.

  1. Shop Local –Support local designers and businesses. Foreign and mass-produced goods are harmful to the environment and local communities. They require an incredible amount of resources to produce. I love going to local smoothie places, restaurants that source locally and boutique shops.
  2. Don’t use “To-Go” Cups- This one is hard, especially as a coffee lover but I am really trying to make the effort to bring my own mug or simply take my time at the coffee shop to drink my coffee in a mug instead of using to-go cups.
  3. Have a Vegetarian Day– 51 percent or more of global greenhouse-gas emissions are caused by animal agriculture. I love meat and I think it would be too hard to give it up completely, but I also loved fruits and vegetables so having a a day every once in a while where I eat vegetarian is not too hard and I am helping the environment!
  4. Buy your Groceries at your Local Farmer’s Market- I love farmers markets! I go almost religiously and there really is no comparison. The food you get is just so fresh and in season. You know you are getting quality food. You are getting food that has been picked probably in the last day or two which means that they probably have retained more nutrients.  Local food supports a clean environment, benefits wildlife and supports a more sustainable food system.
  5. Reduce Packaging Waste-As a blogger, I receive packages almost daily. Most of you have seen my opening my packages on my social media and many of you have said what I have thought for a long time: it’s such a waste! Some small items come wrapped in an excess of packaging. Of course, I recycle everything, but recently, someone brought to my attention that I should tell brands to please try to send in as little packaging as possible. I thought this was a great idea and something I will start doing. Even if it’s small changes, it’s still worth doing.
  6. Seek Socially Responsible Brands- There is no better feeling than spoiling yourself with something new and knowing your money is going to a good cause. I love discovering and working with brands that are socially aware and make it a part of their mission to either be more sustainable, give back to a good cause, and that are just more socially involved.
  7. Have Re-usable Bags Handy-Get a couple of reusable shopping bags and just keep in the trunk of your car. That way, you have then handy for whenever you go shopping and you don’t use any plastic bags.

¡Es Día de la Tierra mañana! Recientemente, tuve una conversación con una amiga sobre cómo podría tomar pequeñas acciones para llevar una vida más sustentable y ayudar al medio ambiente. Algunas son cosas que quiero empezar a hacer específicamente como bloguera, pero otras son cosas que todos podemos hacer! En honor al Día de la Tierra, pensé compartir algunas cosas fáciles que todos podemos hacer para ayudar al medio ambiente y cuidar este planeta que es nuestro único hogar.

  1. Apoyar Negocios Locales – Apoyen a diseñadores y negocios locales. Los productos extranjeros y de producción en masa perjudican el medio ambiente y las comunidades locales. Requieren una cantidad enorme de recursos para producir. Me encanta ir a comprar a tiendas boutique locales y comer apoyar restaurantes y negocios que usan material y productos locales.
  2. No Usen Vasos/Productos Desechables- Esto es difícil para mi especialmente como un amante del café, pero estoy realmente tratando de hacer el esfuerzo de traer mi propia taza o simplemente tomar mi tiempo para quedarme en el lugar para tomar mi café en un taza en vez de pedir un vaso desechable. 
  3. Tener un Día Vegetariano – El 51 por ciento o más de las emisiones globales de gases de efecto invernadero son causadas por la agricultura animal. Me encanta la carne y creo que sería demasiado difícil dejarlo por completo, pero también me encantan las frutas y verduras entonces tener un día de vez en cuando donde como vegetariano no es demasiado difícil y estoy ayudando al medio ambiente!
  4. Compren Comida en su Mercado Local- ¡Amo los mercados locales! Voy casi religiosamente y realmente no hay comparación. La comida que te dan es tan fresca y solo te venden lo que está en temporada. Las frutas y verduras pierden sus nutrientes rápidamente. En un mercado local la comida que te venden probablemente la lleva solo uno o dos días desde que la recogieron así que seguro todavía tiene la mayoría de sus nutrientes. La comida local apoya un ambiente limpio, beneficia a la vida silvestre y apoya un sistema alimentario más sostenible.
  5. Reducir Gastos de Papel en Empaques- Como bloguera, recibo paquetes casi todos los días. La mayoría de ustedes han visto cuando los abro en mis redes sociales y muchos de ustedes han dicho lo que he yo también he pensado durante mucho tiempo: ¡es un desperdicio! Algunos artículos chiquitos vienen envueltos en un exceso de cajas enormes y papel y plástico. Por supuesto, reciclo todo, pero recientemente, alguien me dijo que debo decirle a las marcas por favor traten de enviar las cosas sin desperdiciar tanto. Se me hizo súper razonable la idea y es algo que voy a empezar a hacer. Aunque sean cambios chiquitos, todavía vale la pena hacerlo.
  6. Busquen Marcas Socialmente Responsables – No hay mejor sentimiento que comprarte algo nuevo y saber que tu dinero va a una buena causa. Me encanta descubrir y trabajar con marcas que son socialmente conscientes y que han hecho que parte de su misión sea ser más sostenible, apoyar a una buena causa, y que son socialmente involucrados.
  7. Tener Bolsas de Compras a la Mano-Busquen unas bolsas grandes de compras  y tengan unas cuantas en su cajuela. Así cada vez que vayan al súper o de compras, ya tienen sus bolsas a la mano y no tienen que usar bolsas de plástico.

    This is such a great post! I love the one about reducing waste. I receive some beautiful packages, but the packaging is definitely a waste. Thank you for sharing!

    Love these tips! We always try to get coffee “for here” so we don’t use the to-go cups disposible cups. It’s also a great way to slow down for a couple minutes in the morning (or afternoon).

    Making earth green should be our first priority as it is not only important for the environment but also for the food purpose and food chain in the living community on the earth. In this sense, agricultural growth can tackle the things we are facing in the world right now. The agricultural sector is the backbone of a country if its economy depends upon it. Rather than the economy, agriculture also fulfills the nutritional need of the people of that country. The major export of crops includes wheat, rice, sugar, cotton, tobacco and pulses. Agriculture Manufacturers & Suppliers export them to various countries to fulfill the requirement for agricultural products.
