By Environment Care Articles

Earth Day is this month and OK In Health eMagazine would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU for doing your part in keeping our Earth clean and beautiful on Earth Day and every day. 


This articles is dedicated to our beautiful planet.


These are some simple top ten actions we could all do to help the environment.


1.   Smart shopping:  buy what you need, not what you want. consider renting and borrowing things that are seldom needed or purchase them from a garage sale or second-hand store.  

2.   Simple savers: replace incandescent light bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs.  use aerators on faucets and shower heads.  weatherstrip windows and doors. 

3.   Transportation alternatives: walk, cycle, car pool and use public transportation.  when driving, reduce idling and maintain correct tire pressure.  consider car sharing programs or renting. 

4.    Food choices: choose local and organic foods that are in season and support local food producers.  eat less meat 

5.    Washing & drying: wash full loads of clothes in cold water and hang to air dry 

6.   Heating & cooling: for summer air conditioning, set your thermostat to 24C or 25C.  For winter heating, set your thermostat to 19C or 20C.  install ceiling fans and programmable thermostats. 

7.  Parties: skip the paper plates, balloons, plastic table clothes and plastic cutlery and go for regular plates and reusable supplies etc.

8.   Bathroom basics: take short showers instead of baths.  close water taps while brushing your teeth.  

9.   Careful cleaning:  choose natural, non-toxic cleaning products.  make simple, natural cleaners with ingredients like vinegar, baking soda and water. 

10.  Don't discard: donate, reuse and recycle items before throwing them into the trash.  harmful materials like chemicals, batteries, electronics, etc. should be taken to local hazardous waste depots or recyclers.

Wellness Tip
Have you heard of arugula? It is a green, leafy vegetable that contains about 20 times more beta-carotene and vitamin C than iceberg lettuce. It also has 8 times more calcium. When making green salads at home, consider choosing dark green leaves, such as arugula, romaine, and chicory. Using these greens in salads and on sandwiches creates a more nutritious meal.

Description: Eggs! They are one of the more inexpensive and impressive forms of protein, containing 9 essential amino acids. There are obvious parts of an egg: the white and the yolk. The yolk is the egg's major source of vitamins and minerals, but also fat and cholesterol. However, the yolk also contains an enzyme that helps us digest cholesterol. The white is made mainly of protein. To get the health benefits without excessive fat, eat one yolk per thee whites!
*Healthy Fact!*Naturally raised free run chickens have dark rich yellow yolks whereas the typical factory farmed egg is pale in colour. The darker the yolk, the more vitamin dense it is. This is because of the high quality suitable food the chickens eat and the fact that they are living in a cruelty free environment.
