What does it mean to be “Earth-friendly” and “eco-friendly”? Being earth/eco-friendly is about learning to consume items that cause the least to no harm to the environment. It is about understanding what a carbon footprint is and doing more to lessen that footprint. (A carbon footprint is the amount of carbon dioxide and other carbon compounds emitted due to the consumption of fossil fuels by a particular person, group, etc. Thank you dictionary.com!) Being Earth-friendly is also about striving to support other in living eco-friendly lives and create sustainable communities. Earth day is every day and today’s post is just a reminder of the little things we can do daily to be Earth-friendly.
