The Earth doesn’t need us to thrive, but we need the Earth to survive. We can do better to take care of our planet, and that means making more conscious decisions about what we put in our bodies and what we purchase.
Here’s a few easy things you can do to make a small difference: 🌎 Eat local and find ways to buy at zero waste, bulk stores when you can. 🌎 Reuse packaging as many times as possible. These @pranasnacks bags are resealable and allow me to use the bags for leftovers and snacks. 🌎 Donate or sell used clothes and gear to give it a second chance. 🌎 Create less waste overall. Recycling isn’t the solution. It’s easy to think that by having less trash and more recycling, we’re being more waste efficient. However, a lot of what you recycles ends up going into the landfill because it’s not actually recyclable or it’s mixed with items that are not recyclable. Buying less packaged items will reduce that effect. 🌎 Hold companies accountable for their sustainability initiatives. Engage in conversations with the brands you work with and buy from to see how they can reduce and offset their environmental impact. When I asked @pranasnacks, I found that the bulk of their impact came from agricultural, and by choosing ingredients that were 100% organic, they were able to reduce greenhouse emissions and the impact of fertilizers and pesticides.
We’re not perfect, but we can try each day to do something small in our routine that can shift our actions. Let’s keep the dialogue open and educate each other about how we can be better environmental stewards for our planet. #ad #fueledbyprana #madewithprana #snacktivism
