Ever smell milk or look at an old loaf of bread and question whether it’s still good (or just nontoxic)? Wonder what to do with those extra brown bananas or that last bit of red wine? This month’s challenge is for you (that’s right, you!). There are so many easy ways to dramatically reduce your waste every day that most people don’t know about. And beyond helping save the planet (you know, in case that’s not enough), you’ll also save serious time and money—without really even trying.
In honor of Earth Day on April 22, we’ve put together a 30-day challenge to waste less—less food, water, electricity, time, and money. Because it’s crazy how much the little stuff adds up. By simply trading disposable water bottles for a reusable one to get those eight glasses of H2O per day, you can save up to $1,400 in one year.
Take these small challenges one day at a time, mix and match, and figure out which lifestyle changes work for you. Share your favorites (or least favorites) using #earthlove, and don’t forget to check back next month for an all-new challenge!
