Embracing Equality and Being Green!
Equality is a Small Step in a Green Minded World
Many people think that embracing equality is just the price of admission. We don't equality is not the price to pay, it's the price, the ticket, and the show. More people should be open minded to love is love is love down to the bottom; but anyway.... we're talking about being GREEN - that's what's important here!! Considering the fact that a human is a human is a human- saving this planet we ALL share. We're talking about something meaningful for all people: period.
So how can you do something small to make a big change?
Doesn't matter is you're LGBTQ or Heterosexual; being green can be accomplished by making small steps to large ones. We thought it would be helpful to give you some tips and shortcuts so you know how to start your New Year's Resolutions right (and stick to it!).
1. SWAP YOUR HOUSEHOLD CLEANERS
switching household cleaners that can be harmful to the environment reduces pollution both indoors and outdoors.This can also help heal asthma attacks and allergy triggers when shopping look for brands that offer plant-based cleaners. 2. SHOP FOR SUSTAINABLY-RAISED MEATS in simple terms a "free range" animal who had a most normal as possible life; labels are helpful so if they say "free-range" "organic" or "no hormone" its a GO!
3. UPGRADE YOUR INSULATION
adding insulation to prevent leaky ducts and windows can improve your home's energy draw 20-30% (saving $$) and you can get something cheap like a door sweep or draft guard
4. LEAVE SHOES AT THE DOOR
removing your shoes at the door can prevent car exhaust, chemicals, and pesticides from entering and tracking all over your home (didn't think about how nasty the bottom of your shoe can be huh??
5. MICROWAVE GLASS NEVER PLASTIC
heating plastics can cause harmful chemicals to seep in your food. Even "mircowave-safe" containers are not safe to use.
6. CHOOSE SAFE POTS AND PANS
what you cook your food in does have an important place in eating healthy. Non-stick pans, while convenient, if the scraping get in your food can be harmful. Use cast iron or stainless steel.
7. REDUCE THE USE OF BUG SPRAYS AND PESTICIDES
I know, I know, I hate pests too but try natural remedies. Also maintain preventative measures; keep a clean, crumb free kitchen, fill holes or cracks in walls, and take your trash out often.
For the most part, these tips seem pretty simple and straight forward. I personally think they are a great road to be better for years to come. You can even teach your children how to do small things like this to help out around the house.
