Ready to do some good this week for yourself and Mother Earth? Here are five actions you can take this week:
- Create one new eco-friendly lifestyle habit that you’ll commit to for at least the next 30 days (you will be surprised how it will stay with you!). No straws? A daily walk in nature? Bring your own bags to the grocery store?
- Volunteer your time at a local nonprofit. Connecting with the needs of your community can help put life is perspective and is (almost alway) such a rewarding experience! There are so many people in the world doing great things for people and our planet and the news and media often doesn’t remind us of all this goodness in the world. Volunteering is a perfect way to stay connected to positive things happening in your community! VolunteerMatch is a great resource to get you started.
- Plan a summer vacation that includes getting out in nature – camping anyone? If you don’t have your own camping equipment, Hipcamp is our personal favorite place to discover the best “glamping” experiences all around the U.S.
- Download EWG’s latest Clean Fifteen™ and Dirty Dozen™ lists for 2018 to help you make better choices for yourself and your family, and reduce exposures to toxic pesticides.
- On April 11th a cute pride of 3 lionesses and 8 cubs was found after being killed by poisoning probably in revenge for preying on livestock. This is at least the second such mass poisoning of lions from Queen Elizabeth National Park. These tree climbing lions live in only two places in the world and are endangered by habitat loss and rapidly growing populations around the park. Sign the petition today to help save these magnificent creatures by urging the Ugandan Wildlife Authority to take action to save these lions through better community outreach and better compensation for the herding families that surround the park and lose their livestock to lions that wander from the park.
Cheers to being the change we wish see in the world!
