Matt, our Social Media Director, is one of three YEARS team members who rides a bike to work. @MattRosenbaum1 pedals to the office via @CitiBike, a New York City-wide bikeshare program. Not only does he stay active this way, but biking to work helps him reduce his carbon footprint. If you live in NYC & want a taste of #BikeLife, check out @CitiBike in your borough.

The YEARS team is dedicated to reducing emissions in as many ways as possible, one of which includes an office compost! Since we’re a small team, we each wear a lot of hats. For Maggie, she’s not only the Web Director, but she’s also our resident expert on all things compost and recycling! That’s why she gets todays first #WorkGreen shout out. Every week she volunteers to bring the YEARS office compost along with her food scraps from home to her local collection. If she can do it, so can you!

While dealing with the complex issues of climate change, we’re still focused on the small changes that have big impacts. Saving paper is important to us, that’s why our writing team goes entirely paper-free during the script writing process. Using digital file sharing programs like @Dropbox, @Box & @Google Drive are essential to making sure we are able to create & collaborate while doing our part in reducing paper waste.

This week, we’re showing you how we at The Years Project #WorkGreen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ YEARS Editor Ethan reduces personal waste by bringing his lunch in a reusable container every day. And since we stock our office with all kinds of utensils, using plastic silverware is never necessary. If your office isn’t as environmentally friendly as ours, throw a set of reusable utensils in your bag or leave them at your desk to join us in our attempt to reduce plastic waste. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ P.S. This is Ethan’s homemade take on Chinese food, yum!

Did you know that in less than 50 years, our annual consumption of plastic bags has increased from zero to over 500 billion? Plastic is everywhere–in our oceans, streets, and landfills…and it lasts for a LONG time! Places around the world like Australia, China, Denmark, and the Philippines have either banned plastic bags entirely or tax their use. This Earth day, @EarthDayNetwork is catalyzing a movement to reduce plastic waste with their #EndPlasticPollution campaign. Check out the @EarthDayNetwork link in our bio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ Want to reduce your plastic use? One easy step you can take is to bring a reusable bag when shopping. We just just launched YEARS The Store where you can buy sustainably sourced gear and rep our brand–including reusable logo tote bags. Click “YEARS The Store” in our bio for more!

Trying to dip your toe into environmentalism? Buying local produce is a great way to start small. Not only does local produce taste better because crops are picked at their peak and sold quickly, but fruits and veggies that spend less time between farm and table are reported to have a higher nutrient content. Choosing to buy local produce can also support local communities and families. As summer creeps into the Northern Hemisphere and temperatures rise, farmers markets will pop up in many cities! Search for farmers markets in your city and join the movement to #BuyLocal 🍎

#FACT – Climate ≠ Weather ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Though many public figures use these terms interchangeably, their distinction is important. Weather describes short-term changes in the atmosphere like temperature, humidity, and precipitation whereas climate refers to the average pattern of weather in one place for over 30 years. @NASA states that “climate is what you expect, like a very hot summer, and weather is what you get, like a hot day with pop-up thunderstorms.” Studying changes in climate can help describe alterations to ecosystems, crop yields, water availability, and predict the effect those changes will have on humans. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tag a friend in the comments for a #CrashCourse on Climate Science.

Crises involving water scarcity are becoming more frequent due to climate change. Marine species are the primary residents of aquatic ecosystems…but what else is in the water? @Guardian reports that waste from over-the-counter and prescription drugs is flooding river systems, posing harm to ecosystems across the globe. Some scientists attribute rapidly increasing drug concentrations in rivers to inadequate treatment systems in urban centers, others to improper disposal of pharmaceuticals. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ For instance, certain endocrine disruptors found in drug waste have induced sex changes in amphibians and affect the metabolisms of fish, too. But the effects of drug waste is not limited to marine life. In fact, antibiotic waste is said to foster the evolution of bacteria that is drug-resistant. It’s critical for humans to be conscious of how we treat our aquatic resources. Many cities have disposal procedures, so check your local resources before tossing 💊 in the 🚽
