May 19th, 2016 by onair_admin

Summer is almost here, and it’s one of our favorite seasons here at OnAir! Here are our top 12 tips to have a sustainable summer:

  1. Take an eco-tour, either locally or somewhere new.
  2. Learn something new about the environment regularly. Start following eco-blogs or environmental groups on social media. You’ll learn lots of new facts to share!
  3. Get outside. So simple, so fun, and so summer!
  4. Visit a national park to celebrate the National Park Service’s 100th birthday!
  5. Remember food miles? Buy local food from farmer’s markets or the grocery store. In the summer, it’s even easier to find delicious food grown nearby.
  6. Create your own summer reading list with a focus on books about the environment.
  7. If you or your family likes to grill over the summer, check out this green grilling guide.
  8. Make upcycled decorations for your 4th of July party.
  9. Don’t blast your AC – consider these more eco-friendly summer home cooling tips instead.
  10. Plan next summer’s eco-camp.
  11. Always wanted a pool? Consider building a natural swimming pool in your backyard.
  12. Drink lots of water from your reusable water bottle (skip the plastic!)

And don’t forget – whenever you find yourself doing something eco-friendly that may inspire others, snap a Sustainable Selfie to share! Make sure to use #onairsustainable when adding your picture to Instagram. We’ll be highlighting your sustainable selfies throughout the summer. Have a great one!
