Here are four simple things you can do to help the planet:

1. Cut up plastic 6-pack holders from soda so animals don’t get caught inside them, like this poor guy:

2. Use fewer paper towels. Keep clean hand towels in your kitchen and consciously make a point to use them instead of paper towels whenever possible.

3. Bring your own shopping totes. Keep them in your car so you never forget. My husband’s great about this. I’m still working on it. I think in part because he does his shopping in big, intentional trips, while I stop in to the grocery store frequently for a bag of groceries or two at a time. Like any habit, it takes a lot of repetition to make it your normal behavior.

4. Save your paper that has been printed on one side and reuse it as scratch paper. Keep it in its own pile for lists, printing things you need to review, etc.
