50 Ways To Save The Planet

As Earth Day winds to a close, it’s time to start thinking about what you can actually do to save the planet.

To help you out, Wire & Twine put together a list of 50 Ways to Help the Planet, and in case you’re the forgetful type, they also created a shirt with an icon for each of the 50 ways to help you remember.

Suggestions include not pre-heating the oven, hang drying your clothes, showering with a partner, and going to the car wash, so it’s a list of things that you can actually do without drastically changing your lifestyle, which means you’re more likely to follow through with them.

…Today is Earth Day?

Earth Day Flag

Earth Day is today, which means that it’s time to remember that we’re living on a giant spinning orb that we need to take care of. From its somewhat humble beginnings in 1970, Earth Day is now observed by millions of people in 175 countries, and is the largest secular modern-day holiday in the world. The inspiration for ED is that even small changes can make a big difference, so you’re encouraged to take on projects like planting a tree, changing your light bulbs, or focusing on recycling.

If recycling is your project of choice, then check out the Ecopod, a “simple, aesthetically pleasing, and rewarding way to process recyclables”. The home recycling center features removable storage containers for glass bottles, paper, plastic bags, and aluminum cans, along with a child safe “ecostep system” that crushes your cans and bottles down to an easily manageable size. Plus, BMW Designworks designed the pod, so you know it’s going to look good wherever you decide to store it. Being Captain Planet has never been easier.
