How To Go All Natural!
Right now, we all feel like the world is ending, we feel as though this virus is going to take over the world, and maybe it already has. We hope that by reading this blog today, you can escape the craziness of the world and just enjoy some time to yourself.
As you know, on the website we talk a lot about how we need to save the environment, and today we are going to go into a more detailed description of how to do it.
Going all natural can be difficult, but it is something that everyone should do. The fate of the world is in the hands of our youth. It is up to them to make the world a better, more environmentally friendly place (No pressure).
One of the first steps to going all natural is to eat healthy. This may not seem like a big deal, but it is. Stop eating foods with artificial flavors and eat all natural ones.
By doing this your body is going to feel a lot better. Not only does it make you feel less tired, it also helps with allergies, “as research shows that eating a healthy diet full of fruits and vegetables can help with allergies, too.”
Step two to going all natural is to stop buying products filled with chemicals, and things that are tested on animals. Make your own natural cleaners, make your own make-up, make your own deodorant, even make your own tooth-paste. All of these things help the environment.

This next step is probably the hardest, not driving. “According to the EPA, motor vehicles collectively cause 75 percent of carbon monoxide pollution in the U.S. The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) estimates that on-road vehicles cause one-third of the air pollution that produces smog in the U.S., and transportation causes 27 percent of greenhouse gas emissions.” This means that driving your car, is super bad for the environment, however, this is the big step to going all natural. We understand that you can not just walk, or ride your bike everywhere, but we do ask that you do it as much as possible. You may be thinking that you are just one person and it wouldn’t matter if you are the only one doing it, but that is far from true. “How much CO2 do cars emit? Adam: Burning one gallon of gas creates 20 pounds of carbon dioxide, and the average car emits about six tons of carbon dioxide every year.” So if only one person started to use their car less, it would be a huge (positive) impact on the environment.
Going all natural will take a while and it is best to go slow, but in the long run it will pay off. We suggest that you use up your products and as you run out, start to switch. For example, you run out of lotion, now you can search up how to make a natural lotion and go out and buy the ingredients. Thank you for reading our blog!
