Every year, we celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd — a day set aside to specifically focus on the environmental impact that we are having on our planet and how we can begin to reverse it. In 2018, Earth Day is dedicated to End Plastic Pollution. On the official Earth Day website, it says:
From poisoning and injuring marine life to disrupting human hormones, from littering our beaches and landscapes to clogging our waste streams and landfills, the exponential growth of plastics is now threatening the survival of our planet.
One of the big things that I do in order to decrease my personal environmental impact, and especially the plastic pollution I contribute to, is carry a reusable water bottle and bring a tote bag whenever I go to the grocery store. But you can do a lot more to change the impact you have on the planet, along with helping companies who are trying to make an impact, too. If you’re hoping to do more for our planet this Earth Day, then you can start at your grocery store. From an eco-friendly beer to chocolate that’s good for the planet, here are 8 Earth Day foodie finds you’ll actually feel good about buying.
Numi Organic Tea is a great Earth Day foodie find, primarily because all of the tea bags are non-GMO and compostable, the boxes are recycled and made from 85% post-consumer waste, and they are Fair Trade certified. I highly recommend the Mate Lemon, which is an infusion of South American Yerba Maté, Australian Lemon Myrtle and green tea for a delicious, earthy and soothing drink.
