Synergy, in a simpler definition, is the realization that I affect you and you affect me and without each other we cannot exist. This is something that we cannot take for granted, because literally every single living organisms that exists in our planet Earth has a purpose and is relevant to our existence and prevalence of our race.
1.Conserve Water: Simple things as closing your tab when brushing yout teeth or not taking unnesary long showers, can make a big difference.
2. Minimize the use of fossil fuels: Try to buy locally produced foods, do more carpooling, bike or walk to your destination.
3. Plan your Meals: Creating less food waste could help a looooot. 30% of the food is thrown away in the garbage. Be mindful when making or ordering your food, it will also keep away rats and roaches.
4. Say no to plastic utensils, bags and straws: Use reusable bags like the ones we offer at our stores, get your self a reusable straw and an utensils kit to keep in your purse. If you already carry too many things, choose to drink your drinks without a straw and let the business owners know that you would have prefered a more ecofriendly business.
5. Use Natural Products & Support conscious brands: Use less personal care products that contain chemicals and plastic packaging. This will not only improve your overall health but will reduce the production and waste of toxins that end up in our oceans and soil. Here's our favorite brand for skin remedies, Wise Roots Living. You can also find their products in our Wynwood and Old San Juan stores.
