Considering all the threats to our environment today, it can seem overwhelming. But if we all make small, everyday lifestyle changes, we'll make a huge impact on the planet's health.
Here are a few small ways that yogis can help make the world a better place to live in—and sustain it for future generations:
Give up bottled water. According to the Sierra Club, 1.5 million barrels of oil are used to make plastic water bottles every year in the United States. So try a PVC-free stainless steel water bottle and refill it regularly.
Exchange your PVC mat for an eco-mat.
Practice in organic cotton, hemp, or bamboo clothing. The production of non-organic cotton is responsible for 25 percent of the United States' insecticide usage.
