Roots and Shoots: A program of the Jane Goodall Institute

Last weekend I traveled to New York City for my second cousin’s bat-mitzvah. The ceremony was lovely and the party was epic. I danced the afternoon away. As gifts, all of the kids got bags filled with cookies, a t-shirt with some amazing quotes, and a Roots&Shoots bag. On this bag, there is a list for everyday ways to care for the earth. I wanted to share this with you.

Want to save the planet? Here is how to start:

  • Take shorter showers
  • Compost yard waste and food scraps
  • Use a reusable lunch bag each day
  • Turn off the water while you brush your teeth
  • Ride you bike, walk, take the bus, or start a carpool
  • Turn off the light, TV, or radio when you leave a room
  • Pick up litter you see and recycle whatever can be recycled
  • use both sides of a piece of paper when drawing or writing
  • Don’t buy products that were made from endangered plants or animals
  •  Buy things that come in containers that are made from recycled materials and can be reused or recycled again
  • Use canvas bags in place of plastic or paper bags at the supermarket, other stores, library, or anywhere else

If there is anything you would like to add to the list, feel free to comment bellow!
