Happy Earth Day! I’m mostly celebrating inside my apartment. Chances are, you are too. If so, meet me on my IG LIVE at 5:15 pm EST as I have a conversation with my friend, Anja Tyson. We’ll dive into Earth Day, conscious living, apartment living, New York living, and just plain LIVING. Which is so important right now. For now, Anja shares 4 important things to consider…
“1. Earth day is usually so focused on being outside, maybe today is a good day to look at your consumption inside your own home. Can you switch to green energy with your power company? What kind of cleaning products are you using? How energy efficients are your appliances?
2. Earth day is also an indigenous resources education day. Talk with your kids about the history of colonialism across the world because colonialism is about resources. And this still impacts the way oppressed communities in all countries are policed and legislated today.
3. If you can’t go outside and you’re in front of your computer, look up your local elected officials and research their enviromental policies AND THEIR HISTORICAL ENVIROMENTAL POLICY SUPPORTS.
4. Take a moment to research affordable CSA’S or other ways to support local agriculture. Local (regional) agriculture needs your support as they continually face conventional mega-corporations. They are less likely to us pesticides, and produce is grown locally which is better for your family and your immunue system. CSAs prevent food waste because they do not adhere to grocery story aesthetic standards. any CSAs are prohibitively expensive, but there are some that do exist that may be affordable for your family. “
