I’m happy to present a guest post today by Sam from Organic Lesson, his personal blog covering organic gardening and ways to live harmoniously with the planet. As a follow-up to Earth Day, he’s created a beautiful infographic outlining some simple ways that people can ‘go green’ and reduce their environmental footprint. Thanks Sam!

According to data released from NASA, February 2016 was the hottest February ever recorded in the history of modern temperature records. We are also using up natural resources much faster than what would be considered sustainable.

In the following infographic by Organic Lesson, you can learn more about the concerning environmental impacts that human beings have had on natural resources like water as well as the steps you could personally take to go green. Many people are daunted by the idea of going greenbecause it sounds like a lot of heavy lifting is needed to truly make a difference. But that isn’t the case. The action of going green could be as simple as remembering to switch the room lights off or to take shorter showers. With Earth day just behind us, there is no better time than to start now.
