What you can do on Earth Day and Everyday!

  1. Recycle paper, plastic and glass. Reduce your garbage by 10% and your carbon footprint by 1,200 pounds a year.

  2. Donate your old clothes and home goods instead of throwing them out. When you need something, consider buying used items.

  3. Use cloth towels instead of paper ones.

  4. Change your paper bills to online billing. You’ll be saving trees and the fuel it takes to deliver your bills by truck.

  5. YourSmileBox sells eco-friendly oral care products! Our toothbrush is 100% biodegradable and compostable. It is made from bamboo and cornstarch! We encourage customers to practice good oral health by regularly replacing their toothbrushes and reducing plastic waste. YourSmileBox donates 20% to Global Dental Relief for every box sold! 

  6. Buy organic food to keep your body and the environment free of toxic pesticides. Support farmers and companies who use organic ingredients.

  7. Reduce water usage. Turning off the faucet instead of letting it run while you are brushing your teeth can reduce the water usage associated with tooth brushing by 84%, which is 2340 gallons per year.

  8. Grow your own organic garden, or join a farm-share group.

  9. Reduce your meat consumption to curb carbon emissions from the livestock industry.

  10. Compost kitchen scraps for use in your garden — turning waste into fertilizer.
