Earth Day 2021

Katie from Nature Bee - Earth Day Beach Clean Up

Earth Day is here!

Earth Day is all about the conservation of our planet and was one of the first movements towards environmental awareness in 1970. With over 190 countries around the world participating in Earth Day, this event has gained major traction and is a great way to be reminded of our actions.

Here at Nature Bee, it's obvious how much we love the planet and how we are trying to make a difference in the world ; even if that difference is small, we know it is a step in the right direction.

If you are looking for ways that you can get involved in helping our planet, here are 10 things you can do today (and everyday)!

  1. Compost food scraps
  2. Use a reusable water bottle
  3. Recycle plastics
  4. Support local businesses
  5. Hang your clothes to dry
  6. Use reusable shopping bags
  7. Try buying in bulk
  8. Research companies before you buy from them
  9. Organize a beach clean up with friends (6 feet apart of course!)
  10. Use natural cleaning products

 

These are just a few ways that can help you become more sustainable. It can be a daunting thing to think about, but start small! We recommend making a small change to your daily routine every two weeks or so. This way it is less overwhelming and adds up in the long run!

This week, we took it upon ourselves to do a beach cleanup with our staff! This only took us 30 minutes! Next time you’re out on a walk, challenge yourself to pick up three pieces of garbage you see.

Check out how much garbage we collected during our beach cleanup!
