The Steinkeller Brothers, Aron Steinkeller, Stephan Steinkeller, and Christian Steinkeller, are working on a project to improve the environment of the world. Their mission is to protect the rainforest and environment. They believe all changes start with a small group of people. They’ve worked hard to spread the word and have thousands of followers on their instagram, @steinkellerbrothers and their facebook, Steinkeller Brothers. Here is the expert advice from the Steinkeller brothers on helping our environment:
- STOP OR REDUCE YOUR USE OF DISPOSABLE PLASTICS.
According to EDN, each year over 100,000 marine animals and one million birds die from ingesting and choking on plastic. Take the pledge today to eliminate unnecessary plastic from your life. Start using reusable water bottles, travel mugs, and grocery bags. Use social media to encourage others to join you!
- HOST YOUR OWN EVENT TO CLEAN AND BEAUTIFY YOUR COMMUNITY.
Get a group of friends together to clean your local park, school grounds, or neighborhood streets. Pick up trash and recycle the cans, bottles, and plastic. Celebrate your accomplishments by planting some flowers and trees!
- OPT OUT.
You can save trees and reduce landfill waste with a quick phone call or email. Take some time on Earth Day and contact all those retailers who send you catalogs and direct mail packages that just end up in the trash. Opt for emails instead. Start a social media campaign to encourage your friends and family to do the same.
- PLANT YOUR OWN VEGETABLE GARDEN.
Don’t have the space? Consider a container garden or find a community or school garden to share your green thumb. Even better – find a community garden that donates their harvest to a local food bank.
- SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL FARMER’S MARKET.
Buying produce from local farmers not only guarantees you fresher, more delicious fruits and vegetables, but it also helps the environment. According to the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA), food in the U.S. travels an average of 1,500 miles to get to your plate using large amounts of natural resources (especially fossil fuels). Sustainable agriculture uses fewer resources reducing pollution to our water, land, and air.
