3 Simple Life Hacks That Help Keep Our Planet Healthy

Now more than ever, Mother Nature needs us to do everything possible to preserve the environment, not just for ourselves but also for future generations. This is a daunting undertaking to say the least, one that will require serious change from everyone on the planet. But what can we do to help bring about change, and where do we even begin? Lucky for us, new ways we can live sustainable lifestyles and help save the environment are being pioneered every day.

LIFE HACK #1

LIFE HACK #2

Stasher Bags

Stasher bags are so cool! They’re flexible and airtight reusable storage bags made from silicone rather than plastic. To be more specific, that’s pure platinum silicone sourced from natural resources including sand. Believe it or not, you can freeze them, use them to store just about anything, and you can even cook with them (up to 400°F)! They are 100% plastic and BPA free and recyclable. Free shipping is available on orders over $40. Find out more at www.stasherbag.com!

LIFE HACK #3

Reuse, Reuse, Reuse!

If you’re looking for a sign that things are changing all around us - take a close look at many stores throughout the US. It’s becoming more and more common to find stores charging for plastic bags when you check out! Though we rarely get excited about additional fees, this is for a great cause. Start bringing and reusing your own grocery bags to cut down on unneeded single-use plastic waste.

Plastic water bottles are another area where we can really reduce our output of harmful plastic waste. Instead of that bulky and wasteful 24-pack of plastic bottles - pick up a cool, reusable water bottle! They come in so many styles and have a lot of cool added features to keep your drinks just the right temperature. Spots to refill your bottles are springing up in airports, college campuses, and you can bet that you will be seeing more on the way.
