Sustainable living every day

This week, as every April 22nd, we celebrated Earth Day. We believe that this day is a good reminder of our responsibility to protect our planet. But why limit our efforts to just one day? Let’s embrace sustainable living every day!

Here are 10 actionable ways to celebrate Earth Day year-round:

  1. Reduce paper usage: Opt for digital alternatives whenever possible. Say goodbye to excessive printing and embrace digital documents. By reducing paper consumption, you contribute to saving trees and conserving forests.
  2. On that same note…plant trees: Trees are Earth’s natural air purifiers and fundamental for the water cycle. Have you missed rain this year? Are you seeing much warmer than usual days? Plant a tree in your yard to help offset carbon emissions. Every tree makes a difference.
  3. Hold leaders accountable: Advocate for environmental policies. Take advantage of this upcoming electoral cycle and ask about candidates’ position on key environmental issues. Then hold elected officials accountable. Your voice matters!
  4. Cut down on meat: Reducing meat consumption has a significant impact on the environment. Consider incorporating more plant-based meals into your diet. It’s good for your health and the planet.
  1. Carpool: Whenever possible, opt for carpooling. Fewer cars on the road means reduced emissions. If carpooling is impossible, consider walking or biking when distance allows it. 
  1. Energy-efficient homes: Make your home energy-efficient. Switch to LED bulbs, insulate properly, and unplug devices when not in use. Small changes add up!
  1. Conserve water: Practice water-saving habits such as taking shorter showers, fixing leaky faucets, and using water-efficient appliances. If you live in places like Mexico City or California, you know how tough it is to not have access to water. Every drop counts!
  2. Buy local: Choose local products over imported ones. Supporting local businesses reduces transportation-related emissions and strengthens your community.
  1. Educate yourself and others: Learn about recycling, composting, and sustainable practices. Share your knowledge with friends and family. Awareness leads to action!
  2. Connect with nature: Spend time outdoors, whether hiking in a nearby park, picnicking by the lake, or simply enjoying a leisurely stroll through nature. Reconnecting with nature fosters appreciation and inspires a deeper commitment to protecting our planet.


Remember, every small step counts. By adopting these habits, you become an everyday Earth Day champion. Let’s protect our beautiful planet together, and hopefully by next Earth Day we can share more about what we’ve done.

I hope you found this interesting. As usual, if there is anything we can help you with, or if there is an ESG topic you would like to know more about, please let us know.
