We recently asked our fans on Facebook to share their suggestions for being earth-friendly:

Tips to tread a little lighter on Mother Earth:

  • Use a reusable water bottle
  • Grow your own food
  • Support local farms and farmers and shop at farmer’s markets
  • Compost
  • Recycle
  • Walk to work / school
  • Reuse plastic food containers for leftovers
  • Pick up litter
  • Reuse plastic grocery bags
  • Turn off lights & appliances when not in use
  • Vegetarian diet
  • Buy eco-friendly and organic products
  • Use cloth diapers
  • Wash laundry and dishes in large loads
  • Vegan diet
  • Buy green eco-friendly cleaners
  • Work from home
  • Teach children how important the environment is
  • Use reusable shopping bags
  • Use a clothes line instead of dryer
  • Shop at secondhand thrift stores

Earth-friendly initiatives the Soul Flower warehouse practices:

  • We use Priority Mail boxes (which are post consumer recycled)
  • We rarely add packaging materials into boxes, but if we do it’s all reused
  • We print on recycled paper (your invoice is recycled!)
  • We offset our climate footprint through Carbon Fund
  • We switch off all stereos, speakers, and lights at the end of the day
  • We only heat our large warehouse room while we’re in there
  • We have a community fridge that encourages us to bring our lunch
  • We recycle all unusable paper, cardboard, plastic, metal and glass

Are there any tips you’d add to this list?
