Instead of relying on disposable food wear, bring your own tupperware containers with you when you go out to eat 🥡. Bringing food home from a restaurant doesn’t have to create extra waste! 🚮⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ ⁠ ⁠
But we are anyway 😄! Single occupancy vehicles still account for most of the cars on the road during commute hours. And a lot of cars = a lot of air pollution 😷. Yikes! Public transit 🚈 is a great alternative to driving by yourself to work, but we know this isn’t an option for everyone. Carpool or vanpool are also great options! ⁣ Repost: @londonundergroundofficial⁣ 📷 @flo_schrdr⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ ⁣ ⁣

Achoo 🤧!

Have you felt like you’ve been sneezing more than usual? Climate change may be to blame. A changing climate means a longer allergy season, whether it be mold/pollen from increased rain or dust/soot from increased drought. While we can’t control the weather ☔️, there are some things you can do to help reduce your symptoms. HEPA filters can trap a ton allergens and mold, and it may be worth investing in a vacuum/air filter that has one! Link in bio for more ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ ⁣ ⁣
Or if you even have enough space? Creating your own compost is a fool proof way to help fight climate change and we're here to show you it's easier than you think! There are so many different types of compost bins now, ranging from small indoor ones to large outdoor ones. Read our article to see if this is something you can start this spring!

We say that's more than enough reasons to bring and use a glass or stainless steel water bottle everywhere you go. And if photos like this really bug you, check out our friends @surfrider to find a beach cleanup near you. 🌊 📸 @mo_9o .
While we may be looking forward to all the cozy evenings in our future, we are taking just a minute to recap the wildfire season we had this summer. It was bad, and projections don't see it improving any time soon - mostly due to the climate change situation. We've got a full recap and tips on how you can prepare for next year's wildfire season.
While this polar bear grabs our attention and helps make the case for climate change, it’s important to remember that climate change will affect future generations, and they are also the reason we need to act to make changes. This week is the #globalclimateactionsummit in #sanfrancisco and the focus of the conference is raising awareness and coming up with ways to combat climate change. We are aware of the multitude of health effects climate change can cause and are looking forward to potential solutions and steps forward that come out of this conference. We can change the future by working together to identify solutions. #becausehealth #climatechange #solutions #worktogether #Repost @sfgate ・・・ Have you seen the giant polar bear sculpture in front of the Ferry Building? It’s 35 feet high and in town this week for the Global Climate Action Summit. Thanks @neha_ann for the #regram For story click link on @sfgate profile.
When you can, try choosing organic, buying local and in season, and composing. All of these changes can have a huge impact on climate change and will make your own diet a little healthier because they use fewer pesticides and resources to get the crops to your table.
