Love Your Community
There are those around you, in your neighborhood, and the larger community, who have critical needs. Meeting those needs is possible. The key is to know where to look.
- Some communities are helping to fill empty plates with nutritious food through community gardens. Find out how you can start one.
- Animals can also fall on tough times. If you have a soft spot for our furry friends, make a difference in their lives.
- Homelessness is growing across the country. You can help make an impact on our community’s homeless population by getting involved.
- Consider getting certified as a teacher to help spread the love of education in your community.
Love Your Earth
What sort of impact are you making on our planet? Ensure it’s a positive one by taking great care of the planet for today and for the future.
- Are you adding toxins to the air when you clean your home? Filling the air you breathe with harsh chemicals can be bad for you and for the environment, so choose conscientious cleaning products.
- Avoid sending trash to landfills! Instead, try to reduce your overall consumption, and reuse and recycle what you can.
- Chemicals and over planting can drain nutrition from the soil and leave toxins behind. Choose earth-friendly tactics to maintain your lawn and garden.
Have a Voice
Do you take an active role in standing up for what you believe? You might feel small, but together, we can make a difference.
- A simple but effective way to have an impact is to start a petition.
- As Time.com explains, peaceful protests are still relevant. Getting involved with such actions is an important way to communicate with world leaders.
- Similarly, boycotting products can send a message to corporations and powers that be.
