Work from Home
If your company will let you, you can reduce pollution by avoiding a commute altogether. Working from home can put you at ease, save you time, and prevent you from being exposed to unhealthy air.
Get Produce Locally
One of the best things you can do for your health is buy local produce. Produce from far off is often picked before it is ripe. Some studies suggest that allowing produce to ripen on the plant increases its nutrient content.
Reduce meat consumption
The amount of energy used to bring meat to the table is rather large, and contributes to pollution and environmental degradation. Additionally, the over-consumption of meat can lead to health problems in humans. Cut back your meat consumption to something more moderate, and you will see a reduction in heart disease, obesity and other health problems.
Be Wary of Plastic Containers
Some studies suggest that contaminants found in some plastics can cause fertility issues and other health problems. Storing your food in these containers can be damaging to your health, just as their production is damaging the the environment. Use environmentally friendly containers for food storage and reduce harmful effects to your health.
Ride Your Bike
Riding your bike can provide you with good exercise, which can lead to increased heart health and a number of other benefits, including weight loss.
Use a Refillable Water Bottle
Investing in a refillable water bottle, whether it is plastic or made of aluminum, reduces the number of bottles in landfills, and in some countries, that amount of unrecycled bottles is nearly 90% of all water bottles used.
Recycle Bottles, Cans, Paper, and Plastic
Recycling benefits everyone, and takes no more energy than putting cans or bottles in the trash. Most states offer a refund for recycling, and money in the pocket is something everyone can use.
