Earthday Everyday

Earthday Everyday

Here at Highwave, we’ve built our business around creating ways to help humans walk more gently on the Earth. So as you can imagine, we love any day focused on celebrating and healing our favorite planet. With pollution on the rise and the health of our ecosystem in decline, reversing the damage we’ve done to Earth’s land, air, and waterways is a huge goal. We believe it’s the small steps all of us can take daily, that will ultimately shift the tides in favor of a healthier world. Not sure where to help? Read on for some simple ways, to make a difference every day.

  • Unplug appliances when not in use
  • Switch your bills to paperless
  • Invest in a travel mug/water bottle
  • Pick up at least five pieces of trash whenever you’re out for a walk
  • Use environmentally friendly, non-toxic cleaning products
  • Replace inefficient incandescent light bulbs with efficient CFLs or LEDs
  • Buy organic food to keep your body and the environment free of toxic pesticides
  • Support farmers and companies who use organic ingredients
  • Water your lawn late at night or early in the morning to reduce evaporation
  • Plant native and drought resistant plants
  • Place all food scraps in the green bin provided by your waste company
  • Set your office printer to print two-sided
  • Use cloth towels instead of paper for cleaning
  • Use reusable bags in the produce section, not just to carry your groceries home
  • Stop using single-use plastics, like bottles, bags and straws
Lastly, vote with your dollars by patronizing companies who are actively working toward a greener, cleaner world. (You can learn more about Highwave’s Ocean Energy project here.)
