My last article for the college's student newspaper came out today. I wrote about the Earth Week at my college, its activities and if the college is really 'green'. At the green festival in NY, we've got a lot of information about going green and how small steps can make a difference. I think that people would like to do something in order to go green but they are just too busy to really think about it.
Right now I am trying to find a balance between my shopping habits, consumption itself and being green because after I had time to do some research and watching documentaries now I think twice what and where I buy.
Would you like to join me?
Here are some tips in going green:
*use cloth bags, refuse plastic
*share what you have- buy less stuff
*invest in quality and durability
*put on a sweater
*eat less meat, eat locally grown organic food
*don't drive unless you have to, walk and cycle more
*turn off lights when you leave a room
*use buses, trains and tram: carpool
*pick up litter
*look for fair trade and union labels
I know it can be hard to 'be green' especially when you're a student and you just don't have the money to buy organic, fair trade or sustainable products. And I am not going to become vegan but just to be aware of what you eat and to think about the environment would help a lot. Let's see how that goes, I'll let you know..
Fun, educating, helping game:
Know that all life on earth is connected, little and big changes will make a difference if we pay attention today.
Have fun, enjoy and learn,
