Getting Green. Being more eco-friendly. Wasting less & reusing more. Leaving the world a better place, or at least not a worse one.
These are thoughts that cross many of our minds. Who hasn’t noticed that they could be a little more environmentally friendly, or waste a little less? But don’t worry, these feelings pass quickly, swallowed by more important things as we continue on with our lives. I mean, where would you even start? Buying smarter? With all the ‘eco-marketing’ happening these days, who can actually tell what the greener choice of laundry soap or all-purpose cleaner is? Besides, they probably don’t work as well and we’ve heard they cost more. To top it off, you can only buy them at that store on the other end of town, which only opens twice a week.
After all, who has time to save the world anyway?
I do. Your neighbour does. The people in your office do, and so do your kids. And so do you.
It isn’t about saving the world. Chances are, you won’t have to do much anything different from what you do today. But making those small choices is something to feel good about, because you are making your footprint on the world a little smaller. And if we’re all doing that, we just might save the world too. And who doesn’t want to have that on their list of accomplishments?
But where do you start? That’s where we’re here to help. From shopping to eating, travel to home decor, from getting involved to talking out loud, there are many great ways to live a little greener. So many in fact, that we have had to pick and choose to come up with our top 50 to tell you about. Starting later this month, we’re going to be talking about 50 Shades of Green, 50 Ways to Love your City.
Some of our topics we already know a lot about, and some of them we’re going to have to do some research and call in some experts along the way. Check out our 50 Shades of Green word cloud for some of our top ideas, and let us know if there is something you want to learn about in an upcoming post!
