1. Educate yourself.
Every day is a good day to learn a little bit more about how to treat the planet better. Research local events in your area that contribute to or promote sustainability or try out an environmentally aware documentary or book. The more you know, the more we can help the planet grow.
2. Say thank you.
During these strange times, our smiles are covered with masks and we’re missing our usual cues of gratitude. Make sure that the cashier and the mailman both know how thankful you are they came in to work today.
3. Choose the eco-friendly path.
Compost your food scraps, recycle and pick up litter, and walk instead of driving when possible. When walking isn’t an option, riding in one of our fully electric Tesla taxis is a great alternative!
4. Let someone go ahead of you in line.
Outdoor lineups are not uncommon these days. Earn some solid karma points during these colder months by letting elderly folks or young families go inside before you.
5. Unplug one thing.
We use a lot of energy as part of our daily living, however, conservation is an essential part of energy efficiency. Unplugging a few of the rarely used items around your house adds up to a lot of conserved energy, all with little effort!
6. Share your time with someone who needs attention.
Due to COVID-19 government restrictions, many folks have become isolated. Let them know they’re not forgotten with a fun e-card or a good catch up via video chat.
7. Donate your unused items.
When clothes, books, furniture, or other items no longer serve you, donate them. This not only increases the lifespan of these items and keeps them out of the landfill, but also gives access to someone in need. Find local shelters or clothing drives in the area where your items can soon be someone else’s treasures.
8. *BONUS TIP* Give someone a genuine compliment.
Because hey, we all need love!
