Happy Earth Day friends! Not reading this on April 22, 2020? No worries, I am a believer that everyday can be Earth Day and we all have a responsibility to be conscious consumers of our planet’s resources. As a human, and especially as someone who uses a natural product for my work, I believe stewardship is vitally important!
I shared over on my Instagram today a few resources that I enjoy and some tips on how to lessen our impact to get the ideas flowing. It’s important not to try to do everything at once and get discouraged! Maybe pick something that sounds interesting to you and implement that practice into your routine. Once it’s a normal part of your day, move on to another!
