Help the Earth! Yes, I want to, but it takes so much time is often my excuse. These ideas are easy and quick and help our Earth.

#2 I don’t agree with carrying a mason jar. It would be unsafe for me to do because I would break it and it would not be pretty. I do have a metal non-spill cup (almost a sippycup. LOL) that is made by Contigo that will keep my drink cold for 8 hours. It really works and is great for camping, too. I carry it everywhere so I have water all the time.  Hydration is so important. No, I do not get any money from that brand.

Rachel Rofe (Rachelrofe.com) This blog post is a (lightly edited) transcript of my latest podcast episode, 10 things you can do to make the world a better place. (There were actually 11.)
This episode was sponsored by my “Done For You Amazon Bestseller” program at http://www.rachelrofe.com/bestsellerI don’t know about you, but I think a lot about the future of our planet and how I’m contributing to making it better or worse.And while I don’t like to be ruled by guilt, sometimes it can be an excellent guidepost in helping you realize where changes are necessary.

One thing I’ve been thinking a lot about lately is trash. I came across this woman’s website, Trash Is For Tossers, where she talks about how all of her trash for the past 2 years can fit into ONE mason jar.

Since learning about her, throwing things into the trash has been a totally different experience for me. When I walk to the trash can now, I think about how I’m contributing to a landfill that’s going to be there forever. I think about how it’s an act that actively makes the world WORSE, and how I do have an option, because there are people out there who are an example of not throwing trash away.

While changing completely overnight doesn’t seem doable, and it isn’t healthy to become obsessive about anything, I DO think we can ALL become a little bit better every single day.

In that spirit, I’m going to share 11 things, each that take 5 minutes or less, that require very minimal effort but make a big impact in the world.

Let’s go…

#1: Use cloth tote bags.

#2: Bring a mason jar with you.

#3: Plant a tree when you fly.
