Environmentalist, Spokesperson and Eco-Activist Star Actress Shares Ways Everyone Can Help the Planet this Earth Day
Just in time for Earth Day, actress, singer, dancer, and eco-activist Heather Morris shares timely information about environmentally friendly products and trends. Heather hopes to motivate environmentally focused citizens to become “everyday” stewards and provide an example for generations to come. Learn why recycling and preservation can have a positive impact on the future. Earth Day 2023 may be more important this year than at any time in recent history. Each day, extreme weather events are providing an important reminder of the impact of climate change. The first Earth Day was more than 50 years ago, and now it is a global event that involves more than a billion people.
SOMETHING WE CAN ALL DO TO PROTECT THE ENVIRONMENT
86% of Americans feel the planet is worth protecting, and one way to do our part is through food choices. For instance, Neutral organic whole and 2% Milk is carbon neutral, meaning anyone can lower their carbon footprint just by choosing it. Buying just one ½ gallon per week would eliminate CO2 emissions equivalent to 726 miles driven! Small changes like choosing carbon neutral milk can really help protect the environment. You can find it at Sprouts Farmers Market and Whole Foods Market. Neutral is Milk for a Planet Worth Saving. For more information, visit www.eatneutral.com
UNIQUE WAYS TO SUPPORT EARTH DAY
Eco-friendly travel is at the top of mind for so many this Earth Day. Travelodge by Wyndham is all about sustainability, including an ongoing commitment to preserving our nation’s parks. More than 75% of all Travelodge hotels are less than an hour’s drive from a national park, making it the perfect basecamp for that next adventure. In advance of Earth Day, they have a great deal: 20-percent off stays of two nights or more. Head over to Travelodge.com for all the details.
WAYS PEOPLE CAN MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE IN THEIR HOMES
Make a real difference by changing small things, starting with the dishes. Households waste up to 20 gallons of water each day pre-rinsing their dishes. Because of this, Finish is launching a campaign that they hope no one will ever see. To encourage people to skip the rinse, they have created “The Hopeful Monument,” which sits at the bottom of an at-risk lake. It is a symbolic representation of the larger water crisis issue and will only be seen if water levels unfortunately drop low enough to reveal it. For Finish, ultimate cleaning performance is their job. A better future for people and the planet is their goal. For more information, visit www.finishdishwashing.com
OTHER SUGGESTIONS FOR RECOGNIZING EARTH DAY
Make sure appliances are energy efficient. The Midea EVOX system offers unmatched energy efficiency, flexibility and comfort, featuring an inverter heat pump that outperforms traditional options. A “heat pump” is an air conditioner that also works backwards, using electricity to move heat into homes during cooler months which can save on average 20-40% in heating costs. New tax credits from the Inflation Reduction Act and rebates from utility companies make it even more attractive for homeowners to switch, and EVOX is designed to replace existing systems seamlessly.
