Earth Day is right around the corner, so pingg wants to help you celebrate the planet appropriately! This April 22, show how much you love the earth by vowing to recycle, reuse, and reduce. How, you ask? Search no more, we’ve compiled a list of the best ways to say, “I love you, Earth!”
On Valentine’s Day, we encourage you to infect others with the love bug by send hearts and kisses. On birthdays, we support spreading love by saying, “Happy Birthday, I’m younger than you.” On Earth Day, we want you to pingg loved ones and start a planet loving chain reaction.
Send Happy Earth Day wishes and include a way that you are going to help the planet this year! Here are some of the pinggs you can send:
Most banks and credit cards are offering a paperless option so take advantage of it! Check your bills and statements online to reduce the use of paper and get rid of mail clutter in your home.
And, of course, use pingg for invitations, holiday cards, and birthday wishes to cut down on paper and ink use!
Reuse: Save Cash and the Planet
It’s the little things that count. Start printing double sided on recycled paper. If you can’t print double sided or have a lot of one sided junk mail, keep the pages for scrap paper to jot down grocery lists or use as sketch paper for kids. Don’t forget to recycle paper at your local recycling center when you’re all done with it.
Bring your own coffee mug for your morning joe instead of using plastic ones in coffee shops. Some java shops even offer a discount if you bring your own cup.
Avoid buying bottled water and carry around a reusable water bottle instead. Not only will save money, but every time you refill your bottle and skip the plastic, you’ll be hugging the planet!
Paper or Plastic?
Neither! Instead, buy reusable shopping bags like the ones below. They’re simultaneously more durable and adorable than regular paper and plastic grocery bags. Check out what Reuseit has to offer:
Don’t trash it. Donate it!
Have a small army of pencils, pens, markers or crayons that you don’t need? Donate them to local schools. Take a look at iLoveSchools.com to see if any schools need help around you.
You can also donate old blankets to animal shelters to keep pups and kittens warm and comfy and donate used clothing too.
The ways to reuse and reduce waste are endless. Post a comment if you have another great planet saving idea!!
