Join us in zero waste and change the world!
As stewards of the earth, we want to take care of our planet. With thousands of employees in multiple countries and millions of members, Young Living’s influence can make a positive impact on the environment and set an example for millions to follow.
Young Living Founder D. Gary Young said, “I can take care of my Young Living family only if I take care of Mother Nature.” A true steward of the earth, Gary deeply believed that there is an expectation for us to care for the planet and that Young Living can only truly thrive when doing our part.
The road to zero waste will have its challenges, but our chances for success are much greater when everyone joins our efforts to preserve the world we love. Some disheartening statistics to motivate positive action:
It takes 500 years for average-sized plastic water bottles to fully decompose.
Currently Canadians only recycle about 11 per cent of all plastics.
Every month we’ll send out some helpful tips to living the zero-waste lifestyle! Here are a few to get you started:
Recycle any aluminum cans you have. Recycling just two cans a day saves the same amount of energy it takes to power a PC for a single day.
Whenever possible, go paperless for documents.
Use reusable grocery bags instead of the plastic ones offered at the store.
Join us in going green!
Every month the Green Team will suggest one wasteful item or habit that you can remove from your lifestyle to make the earth a little greener! Every change you make to reduce waste will create a positive impact.
January's Green Team zero-waste tip:
Switch to reusable bags to eliminate the waste caused by single-use plastic bags. According to Waste Production Canada, 1 billion single-use plastic bags are handed out each year, 700 species in the ocean are threatened by plastic and ocean waste. Learn more here.
