Earth Day is about taking a step back and reflecting on the impact we make on the world from the food we eat to the way we dispose of waste and how we use our natural resources. We must consider our carbon footprint and the small steps we can take to lessen it. Aside from eating locally, you can can also select seasonal fruits and vegetables and sustainable sources of meat and fish. Another way to be kinder to mother earth is to cut down on trips to restaurants and the drive-thru. This means making the most of your food and bringing your own lunch to school or work.
