SHEBOYGAN, WI — Conserving the planet and the resources we have is something that needs to be done all the time, not just on Earth Day, reported The Lakewood College Mirror.

Many of the things we do in our day-to-day lives can be done slightly differently to give a bigger positive impact on the environment, such as shopping, drinking coffee and getting to work, the article reported.

Getting a reusable coffee mug can also save a lot of paper, and many coffee houses (such as Starbucks) give discounts for bringing in your own receptacle, the article stated.
