Simple Ways that You Can Make a Difference

» Introduction
In today's hectic world it's hard to change things and feel like you are making a difference. Busy work schedules leave us with little time to both tend to our daily needs and make an impact in the world we care about. But there are many great, simple ways to make a difference without having to interrupt your schedule. Here are some simple ways to get started.
» Step 1
Change your grocery shopping habits.  Making a few simple changes to what you buy and where you buy it can make a big difference, with only a few changes to your daily routine. Your local Farmer's Markets are a great place to start. All the produce from Farmer's Markets is grown locally, and the proceeds go directly to supporting your local community.  Also, you avoid buying all your products in packages that just get thrown in the trash.  The all natural fruits, vegetables and grains are a healthy step in the right direction to help cleanse your body of the toxins found in mass produce. Check out your local papers or community center to learn when your weekly Farmer's Market is being held.
» Step 2
Change your drinking and eating habits. Instead of buying case after case of bottled water, try switching to a water purifier system for your home. Plastic bottles have done increasing harm to the environment due to non-recycling and the use of plastic. Also, studies have shown that the chemicals in the bottle can produce harmful effects later in life. By switching to a water purifier, you save money, your health and the environment. 
» Step 3
Use earth and environmentally friendly products. Burt's Bees has a great number of beauty and facial items that are as effective as other name brands but with the added bonus of being made from all natural products. For a body cleanser, try the Naturally Nourishing Milk and Shea Butter Body Wash. For age defying creams, use the Naturally Ageless Line Diminishing Day Lotion. By using natural chemicals like beeswax, botanical and essential oils, herbs, flowers and minerals, you are helping the earth and keeping harmful, manufactured chemicals away from your body.
» Step 4
Stay local and take a vacation in America’s Backyard. State parks offer a great escape if you are looking for adventure or just want to relax. By vacationing in a state park you are helping to make sure that America's most beautiful locales are maintained. By staying closer to home you are also reducing your carbon footprint by reducing the amount of transportation you are using to travel to and from your destination.
