Because humans share ecosystems with endangered species, our quality of life and our survival is linked to them. Habitat destruction, climate change, resource depletion
Here are three things you can commit to this month that will make a positive impact on endangered species.
1. Plant pollinator-friendly plants
Use pollinator-friendly plants – in your garden, on your patio and even in window boxes. Different colors, shapes and scents are best and reduce or eliminate pesticides on your pollinator-friendly plants.
2. Reduce your use of single-use plastics
Refuse single-use plastics that you don’t need (e.g. straws, produce bags, coffee cup lids, dry cleaning bags, etc.) – and let the businesses know that you’d like them to offer alternatives.
Take the Earth Day Network’s Pledge to End Plastic Pollution and learn more about how you can help end plastic pollution.
3. Only eat
Make sure you are an educated consumer by referencing SeaFood Watch Cards or download the app to support restaurants and businesses that use sustainable practices.
