10 Simple Ways You Can Help the Earth in 2020

7. Buy From Local Businesses

This one feels like an obvious one but it’s still really important. Shopping at your local shops and businesses is important for many reason but for the sake of this blog, we will focus on the reduction of pollution it can cause. By simply buying locally, you can avoid the need to have something shipped which in return reduces greenhouse gas emissions and the hours of staring out the window as you wait for the delivery truck. My photo example is not the best because I would never have a cup of tea shipped to my house but I did support a local business in this pic instead of Starbucks.
