Yes. It’s officially Earth Day. However, treating the Earth kindly – that’s something Econistas like yourself do every day, all year round….right?
Of course! Earth Day should be everyday. Otherwise, the lack of regard for the Earth will continue to negative impact not only on the environment, but greater negative impact on women and children around the world. According to a studies produced by the United Nations division of statistics, inaccessibility to clean resources has a greater impact on women and children. For example, many mothers and caretakers don’t have access to clean water.
Here are 3 things we can do to not only take care of the Earth, but the future of our families and loved ones :
1. Shop Online on Earth Day ( and every day) :
E-commerce platforms like Amazon, have marketplaces for green items or handmade items. We found a few pieces that make our mouths water and places our mind at ease. Not only did we find something cute to wear, but did so without the expense of wasting gas or any additional resources. Loving what Amazon: Handmade has to offer.
You can make Earth Day chic by tapping into Asos Eco edit . That site is bomb(dot)com for shopping easy, affordable, accessible green-friendly items. Shop Adiree also provides access to lifestyle and fashion brands from Africa, and emerging artisans from our the world. Check out their store and event platform Africa Fashion Week to be apart of their commerce community.
2. Opt Into Paperless on Earth Day ( and every day) :
Do all of us tree huggers a favor and cut out paper from your life.
3. Invest & Support In Sustainable Companies On Earth Day (and every day):
Here are a few eco friendly and sustainable companies to follow according to Econistas like Green Girl Leah:
〰 Monday Mantra: You are enough. 〰 think about that and really let that set in. While you maybe have project deadlines closing in or dreams you’ve yet to accomplish, in this moment, regardless, you are enough. You are not a grade on a test (trust me after graduating I secretly wish I would have known that C’s are ok). You are not your failures or mistakes, you are you and on your own specific journey that’s beautiful, confusing, joyous, and every emotion under the sun. You are enough and worthy of compassion, especially from yourself. Take time today to really love and value yourself ? ? @livinasleah Outfit: @prana
