Celebrate Earth Day Today – And All Year! 4 Easy Ways

Happy Earth Day !

On this celebratory day I thought I’d recap some of the simplest things you can do year-round to help the earth.

Longevity and health are key – and there are choices we can make each day to do our part. Here’s 4 easy areas to greenify:

Eat and drink green Buy local and organic whenever possible – choose seasonal produce that has a less damaging footprint. Not sure  what’s in season?  Check out this guide.

Choose organic, eco-friendly spirits whenever possible  – like wine and beer.

Shop green.There’s a good selection of eco-friendly designers around these days – check out Dirty Girl Brigade, Arcadia Boutique and Nicole Rae Styer to name a few.

Primp Green. It’s easier than you might think to find eco-friendlier beauty products at your local grocery store. Here’s a few of the more well-known brands.

Sweat Green. Repeat after me “the earth is my gym.” In all seriousness, running, hiking and walking outdoors are three excellent ways to shape up – without the energy  treadmills, ellipticals and other gym equipment use.

Philadelphians I encourage you to check out Lithe Method Studio– they offer unique pilates and dance inspired classes that yield major results. Plus, here’s more green fitness tips.

P.S – Many thanks From Julie and I to all our loyal readers checking in on Earth Day – and everyday!

  1. Great tips – wanted to let GreenPhilly readers know about one more option: If you see the new Oceans film this week, a portion of the proceeds from your ticket will support The Nature Conservancy’s work to save coral reefs. More info is available at: http://adopt.nature.org/coralreef/

  2. Thanks Misty! Great point – even though the oceans aren’t visible from Philly, it’s still crucial we pay attention to our actions & try to preserve them. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Add use refillable growlers for your beer needs to the list and your looking good!

  4. Wrap Green.
    Instead of using wasteful one-use wrapping paper that winds up in our landfills, consider alternatives! One great option are reusable fabric gift bags that you can use over and over again. Check out gratitudegiftbags or facebook/giftbagsfan for an example! They’re perfect for the holiday season and gift giving all year long: Weddings, Birthdays, Bridal Showers, Anniversaries, Mothers Day, etc.
