This Is How To Help Your Community Become More Eco- Friendly

Many of us are doing all we can to make sure our own families and homes are as environmentally friendly as possible. However, as with all important things we are always stronger when instead of being alone in our work we stand together with our communities. The good news is many tactics can help you to help your community become more environmentally conscious. Read on to find out what they are. 

Start a community garden 

One of the best ways to make the community you live in more eco-friendly is to start up a communal garden for growing produce. After all, most of our food travels hundreds if not thousands of miles and uses up huge amounts of previous environmental resources in being cultivated and transported. 

Starting a community garden is a pretty easy task too, as all you will need is a few scraps on land and some seeds. You don’t even need to have lots of land to start as you can grow vegetables in pots, or vertically in wall hangings. Tools can even be brought along by community members, who can get involved in planting and tending the garden at different times. 

Encourage the use of renewable energy 

Another way you can help your community become more eco-friendly is to encourage the use of energy from renewable sources such as wind, geothermal, and solar. Indeed, with services like solar farm customer acquisition, you can very easily narrow down which communities in your location will be interested in sourcing their energy in this way. Indeed, those offering such services will even help you market solar farm energy to your community to make it as easy as possible for everyone to see all the benefits they reap from switching to a renewable source. 

Patronize the most sustainable stores 

You can also help your whole community become more environmentally friendly by shopping at stores that offer sustainable solutions. For example, such stores usually offer refills on products such as laundry powder, washing liquid, and shampoo & conditioner rather than making you buy a brand new bottle that will only become waste after a single use. 

Make it easy for others to swap their cars for bikes 

Last of all, swapping out traveling in gas vehicles for pedal power can make a massive positive difference to your community. This is because gas is a fossil fuel, a resource that is not only speedily running out, but also one that when used releases nasty C02 into the atmosphere which causes global warming.

Happily, there are several ways you can make it easier for your whole community to use bikes more than they do cars. One option is to have bike paths installed as this makes it safer for both cyclists and pedestrians. Another option is to offer free or greatly supplemented public bikes as then community members won’t need to invest in their own cycle to change the way they get around. 

Last of all, be sure to install bike racks at all major public buildings including schools, doctor’s offices, and businesses. Then anyone riding to and from work will be able to store their bike safely and not have to worry about it during the day.
