5 ways to live environmentally friendly everyday

Updated: Sep 17, 2020

It is almost impossible to avoid single-use plastics and waste in our busy lives.

I'm going to share some simple ways that you can make a big difference.

1) Carry a reusable [water] bottle or cup.

You don't only have to put water in it!

Ya'll, this silicone water bottle is so cool!

Not only does it save you space, butttt it is also dishwasher safe, can carry hot and cold drinks, leakproof, and can attach to a bag!

I would suggest to wash it before using for the first time.

2) Get some reusable metal straws!

I know you hear this all the time.. Straws kill sea turtles.. yada yada yada... I'm not going to tell you what you already know, but I will tell you this...

Straws are not truly recyclable. It takes 500 years for plastic to decompose. And the US alone uses about 500 million plastic straws per day!

That Sucks! (...get it?...)

You don't have to give up your love for straws! Just get reusable ones!

(I hear there are some really cool bamboo straws out there too)

3) If you seen trash, pick it up

This isn't very difficult, and makes a huge difference. I'm not expecting you to go out scouting for trash, but if you see a bag, napkin, or plastic just pick it up and dispose of it properly..

If you have some spare time on your hands. Make a statement. Spell SAVE THE PLANET. Take a picture. Tag #savetheplanetmovement #gypsydeloceano. And of course, properly dispose of the debris.

4) Take your own to-go boxes to restaurants
