People shouldn’t feel helpless on environmental issues.
Eat less meat, particularly beef. Dairy, poultry, pork, and lamb farming create 1/3 or less of the greenhouse gases created by beef farming.
Recycle everything you can.
Use reusable bags when you grocery shop. The average American family takes home almost 1,500 plastic shopping bags a year. 14 plastic bags = the gasoline required to drive one mile.
Buy second hand clothing and furniture when possible. Shopping at charity shops helps charities, so don’t think you’re stealing from the needy.
Plant native plants. Native plants support native pollinators like bees, birds and bumblebees. Trees also suck up CO2.
Avoid using weedkiller.
Take mass transit when possible or carpool. Travelling via Amtrak instead of a plane creates half the CO2 emissions.
Donate to an environmental charity.
