1) Keep Calm and Compost 

There's a reason why more and more cities are encouraging you to befriend that infamous brown bin. There are many benefits behind composting. Mainly, it reduces your food waste and contributions to greenhouse gas emissions.

What is compost?

Compost is decomposed organic material, from leaves to banana peels. Since it provides many essential nutrients, it is often used as fertilizer. Compost improves soil structure so that soil can easily hold the correct amount of moisture, nutrients and air. Who knew?

2) Ditch the Plastic

Did you know that a single plastic cup can take 50 - 80 years to decompose? To make matters worse, plastic bags and other plastic garbage thrown into the ocean kill as many as 1 million sea creatures every year. You can help reduce plastic pollution by choosing eco-friendly such as travel mugs, silicone straws, reusable food wraps and reusable grocery bags/totes.
