10 Simple Ways You Can Help the Earth in 2020

3. Plant some herbs or house plants

This is a good one because you get several perks to having some plants around your house. If you get edible plants, like some herbs, you can use them in your favorite recipes or as aromatics but they also help the environment by reducing carbon dioxide and reducing heat by absorbing light. Or maybe pick up some Orchids or various other plants to decorate your home with. You will get a nice splash of nature in your living space as well as helping purify the air! I am currently growing some cilantro and chives in a small Earthbox on my porch. My sweet basil died but I will be getting some new ones along with a few Thai basil plants. My cilantro is not picture ready so enjoy this stock photo of some basil. 🌱
