40 Small Things You Can Do Each Day To Help Save Our Planet

The Lorax is back to remind us that unless we work together, big change won’t happen for our planet.

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”

These are the wise words of our good friend the Lorax, who we’ve joined forces with (again!) for our newest collection.

We know firsthand how overwhelming the problem of climate change can feel; our planet’s future depends on us and time is of the essence. It’s easy to feel small and like your individual efforts aren’t actually going to change much in the big picture. But after reading about our old friend the Lorax we’re reminded that big change starts small, and together, we can have a big impact on this planet we all call home.

Inspired by the collective power each one of us holds to make a difference, we created a list of 40 small meaningful things you can do every day to show you care a whole awful lot about our planet.

  • Plant trees (We’re putting this at the top of the list because each piece you buy from the tentree x Lorax Collection automatically plants 10 trees)
