Ways to Show Love For Your Planet Earth - #prAnahigh


Today I'm sharing ways you can show love for your planet earth in collaboration with prAna.


We love our children and we know that we'll love our children's children, but what are we leaving behind for them when it comes to our planet? Why don't we love our planet earth as much as we love our newest cell phone, or that designer handbag or shoe we just purchased? We just celebrated Earth Day, but I think that Earth Day should be celebrated everyday. After all planet earth is our home and shouldn't we love and take care of it as much as we do the home we live in? I want today to share a few ways you can show love for your planet earth. They're not as difficult as you think they are.


Reuse 
Say no to paper and plastic and purchase items that you can reuse such as reusable grocery bags whenever you go shopping. Purchase a refillable coffee mug that you can use at your favorite coffee shop instead of their paper or styrofoam cups. Purchase refillable water bottles that you can also refill with your filtered water that you fill at home. Not only is it economical but it's also environmentally friendly. Avoid products that you can only use once. The less waste you have, the better it will be for planet earth.

Recycle
If your state participates in a recycling program, enroll. You can recycle items made from paper, plastic, metal and even glass. These can be recycled to make new products and help lessen the accumulation of our landfills. Donate unwanted clothing, household items and even toys that are still in good condition to those in need instead of just throwing them away.


Save Water
There are lots of ways to save on water, not only will you be conserving water, but you'll also be minimizing your water bill as well. Consider fixing leaky faucets, turn off the water while you are brushing your teeth and take shorter showers instead of long baths. Installing a low flow shower head will also help. You may also consider a xeriscape landscape instead of a full lawn. Some cities even give incentives for you having a xeriscape landscape.

Save Energy
Just as saving water, you can save energy in numerous ways. Consider turning off the lights when you don't need them. Purchasing compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs use less energy than full-sized fluorescents. They may cost more at first, but end up saving you more in the long run. Turn the radio, television and computer off when they're not in use. In the summer, consider opening the windows and leaving the A/C off, you can also stay cool by wearing less. In the winter wear more and only turn on the heater as needed. You may even consider solar panels if you're a home owner.


Purchase sustainable clothing
I recently shared WHY you should buy sustainable fashion which goes into detail what sustainable fashion is all about. prAna offers sustainable, recycled, fair trade certified items. Not only that, but prAna prioritizes to giving back to communities around the world. Not only do their clothing fit great and are comfortable, but they are also versatile enough for any lifestyle and any adventure. They're comfortable enough to go from work to an adventure later. Their clothing also supports fair trade and sustainable practices. Just another way to help with our planet earth.

Check out this video on why organic cotton matters which most of their clothing is made from.


Planet Earth is all that we have and we have to take care of it, not just for ourselves but for our children and grandchildren. It's their legacy and one that we need to protect. So let's show our love for our planet earth today!

  6. Living in Arizona, we are always so conscious of our water usage and how to use less. These are great tips!

  7. The more we can do for our planet, the better. I live by the "reduce, reuse, recycle" motto.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Awesome, awesome tips. I am hard core about reducing our carbon footprint. I once grounded my son for a week because he kept putting the recycling in the garbage.

  9. Love this! I couldn't agree more. Our earth is so precious and important. We owe it to our kids and generations to come to help our planet! - Jeanine

  10. We work hard to do our part to take care of the planet, but there is always more that can be done. It helps a lot that we live in a part of the US that supports recycling and sustainable energy sources. When I travel, I'm always amazed at the places that lack any sort of community recycling programs, etc. I guess it's all Baby Steps, right? Sustainable clothing is so important, too. Thank you for the information about prAna - I clicked over and the clothing line looks great!

  12. I always recycle when I can and do my best to conserve water. Taking care of the planet is important to me so I love buying sustainable clothing as well.

    ReplyDelete
  13. These are good ideas. We can all chip in and do our part! Sustainability should be a priority.

  14. I always try to be conscious about the environment and the impact we make and it's so nice to see that it's finally been taken seriously by clothing lines as well. Thanks for sharing

  15. Love this!!! So true, the best ways to show love for the planet is to care about all things. The water, the air, you do your part.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love the idea of clothing being environmentally sound! Thanks for introducing me to this company. The discount will be used.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love prAna clothing so I appreciate you sharing the discount. The clothes are even better if I can find a discount!

  18. People would often say stuff like, we can't do so much we're just individuals and all that bull. If we all do a little something to contribute in saving the world we're definitely going to do a whole lot more than we expected we could. These are awesome ways to help save the planet. We can't give the kids a good future if we don't take care of their home. It's important to make them aware of the environment's current situation as well. I think sustainable clothing is a great move. It's definitely going to help tons!

  19. Great tips just in time for Earth Day! My favorite is buying sustainable clothes. It's not something I ever really think about, but I will now!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I think I'm getting much better with recycling and saving energy but there's just so much more I could be doing - and should be doing! x

    ReplyDelete
  21. Water is life and it annoys me that some people just take it for granted just because we have convenient access to it. Some people in other parts of the world are not as lucky. I think conserving water is a good way to care and love for this planet we live in.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Beautiful ideas! My boyfriend has gotten on me about recycling more, and I find it is very fulfilling to reduce our carbon footprint as much as possible. On a total sidenote your hair is GORGEOUS!!

  26. I am all for reusable coffee cups and water bottles, lets get rid of the plastic and paper waste. I am very interested in the prAna line and their sustainable clothing manufacture process.

    ReplyDelete
  27. It's so interesting how we don't give much thought to our clothing purchases. I recycle and try to reuse items and look for better home products, but it wasn't until recently that I realized I also need to be more aware of what I am buying to wear.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love supporting companies who are all about a greener future. We use grocery sacks that are reusable--that's my favorite tip of them all!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Conserving power is easy to do, if we just turn off the lights when not in use. I do my laundry one time big time on the weekends. We must do our part to save our planet and I'd like to tell you I appreciate this great reminder to participate in Earth Day and continue caring for the environment.

  34. I love campaigns like this. I would've never thought to buy "green" clothing but will definitely be more conscious going forth!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I always try my best to recycle and I make sure to teach my kids the same thing. We only have one planet and have to tae care of it as much as possible.

    ReplyDelete
  36. We all need to do our part to make sure that we leave our kids in a better place. It's them who will have to ultimately deal environmental issues.
