Happy Earth Day from Olander Earthworks! Here are a few tips on how to enjoy mother nature and promote sustainability.
1. Plant Something! Whether it is a succulent for your windowsill or a garden, you and the earth will both benefit. The girls are working hard on the Olander Earthworks garden.
2. Ride a Bike! We have the prettiest bike parking in Portland. We find that biking is the perfect combination of enjoying fresh air and reducing our carbon footprint. Alternatively you can opt for public transportation and forego the crazy traffic and parking search.
3. Take a Sustainability Pledge! We recommend the EcoChallenge lead by the Northwest Earth Institute where you can choose your own challenge. So whether you want to focus on water conservation, energy efficiency or reducing your use of single use packaging you can make an impact and help change the earth for the better.
So "Join the 4,332 EcoChallengers who are collectively proving that small actions add up to real change."
4. Go Outside! Pull yourself away from those screens and devices for a few hours and take to the mountains. Rain or shine, its always a little greener here in Portland.
On your way outdoors, stop by & see us at the Saturday Market on the downtown waterfront. We'd love to see you and hear about your contributions to the earth!
