Take Care of Your Community
It is important that each one of us feels empowered to take care of our neighborhoods and the public spaces available to us. Here are some ideas for how to have a positive impact on your community:
  • **Get outside and pick up trash:** Pull on some gloves and a face mask, grab a bucket or reusable bag to collect trash, and even a trash picker if you have one.

  • **Plant a tree, shrub or native plants:** If you have space at home or permission to plant in a local public space, talk to a local expert to find out what plants are most suitable for the environment you live in.

  • **Build a bee hotel:** Research how to safely encourage pollinators to visit your yard or the green spaces around you.

Adopt A New Sustainability Practice
Each of us can make changes in our daily lives that collectively can have a huge impact on our planet. We encourage you to look at your daily habits and adopt one new sustainable habit. Some examples include:
  • **Commute Sustainably:** Ride your bike or walk to where you’re going.

  • **Become a DIY Expert:** Learn how to fix something that you were going to throw out rather than buying something new.

  • **Choose Reusable over Disposable:** Eliminate one single use product from your life and replace it with something that will last a long time such as reusable shopping bags or water bottles.
