GREEN STEPS FOR ROTARIANS SERVICE

Green Steps  provides service opportunities through supporting the environment, the newest area of focus in Rotary.  Green Steps is how members of Rotary E-Club of Central Texas can do service together while being apart.  We can each do our part and that is our service.   
 
Green Step #1 Avoid plastic by taking reusable  water bottle and bags with you. Reduce plastic by using Laundry Detergent  liquidless eco sheets like Earth Breeze. 
Green Step #2 Meatless Monday- Eat less meat and eat more environmentally friendly foods. https://youtu.be/zLRfw-urNB8
 Green Step #3 Plant Pollinator Plants. By replacing grass with native flowers  and plants  you don't have to mow, water, fertilize, or use pesticides and that is good for  bees! 
Green Step  #4 Mindful Mowing (wait until wildflowers go to seed to mow) 
Green Step #5 Leave the Leaves on the ground. Allow leaves to turn into compost and help the soil. 
Green Step #6 Respect, Reverence, Respect in Relationship to Mother Earth by walking softly, leave no trace, feast responsibility, look to the Seventh Generation in all you do.
Step #7 Plant a Tree.   
Step #8 Lunch Local for Love (shop local farmer's markets)
Step #8- Be kind to bees ! Plant pollinator plants, don't use pesticides, put up a Mason bee house.
Step #9  Lights out at night for migrating birds.
Step #10  Recycle and compost.
Step #11 Use less electricity by unplugging electronics when not in use.
Step #12. Drive and fly less, bike more; Drive electric if you can. Fill your car tires to recommended pressure. 
Step #13 Put a bluebird house bird feeder in your back yard. Become a citizen scientist and count birds for EBird - Cornell University. 
Step #14 Reduce food waste. Buy what you need. 
Green Steps is how Rotary e Club of Central Texas do service individually since  members live apart. We can all make a difference  together.
