Beautiful river and trees at the forest [full_width padding=”15px 15px 15px 15px”]We’€™re thrilled that April is Earth Month–”a more forward reminder for us all to keep giving back to our beautiful planet. So, in honor of Earth Month and our Share One Percent Contest, we’€™re sharing how we plan to help the planet a little more this month![/full_width] [one_half padding=”15px 15px 15px 15px”]

Week One:

Eat only non-GMO foods–€”helping prevent pesticide and chemical toxicity and invasive GMO new-specie spread, while helping biodiversity, which is critical in all ecosystems and to the sustainability of all species and put at risk by GMOs.

Week Three:

Save water. Take 3-minute showers–every two minutes saved on a shower can conserve more than ten gallons of water. And don’€™t rinse dishes before putting in dishwasher–€”saving up to 20 gallons of water each load.

Week Two:

Save energy. No TV, shut off all electronic devices in evening and read a book instead. Wash clothes with cold water, rather than hot to save the energy comparable to 100,000 barrels of oil a day.

Week Four:

Save paper. American businesses throw away 21 million tons of paper every year, equal to 175 pounds per office worker.Help halve this by setting your printer’€™s default option to print double-sided. Cut down on junk mail, sign up to pay all bills online and eliminate paper bank statements.
