Be Thankful...Environmental Style

Thanksgiving means giving thanks: for good health, for family, for friends, for your career, for this, that, and everything. Here are 7 things we should give thanks for this Thanksgiving...environmental style.


1. Bees

Honey bees pollinate fruits, vegetables, cotton for our clothes, alfalfa that feeds the cattle from which we get our dairy and beef; you name it bees pollinate it. Bees help to provide your morning coffee, yes think about your morning if bees weren’t here anymore. It goes without saying then… #SaveTheBees

2. Renewable Energy

Energy is vital to our way of life and as we move further into the 21st century renewable energy is something to be thankful for.

3. National Parks

Get outside this Thanksgiving and enjoy this beautiful planet. I highly suggest going to one of our National Parks, even better some offer discounted admission on Black Friday! (More Information!)

4. Reusable Water Bottles

Reusable water bottles not only protect our planet from waste and save you money, they’re also better for your health and a lot cuter. Bonus points for a glass one!

5. The Free Market

What does the Free Market have to do with environmentalism? Everything. The Free Market has the solutions we need to protect and care for Mother Earth. From reusable water bottles and stainless steel straws to biodegradable caskets and everything in between, the Free Market can supply the necessary tools to continue protecting the environment.  

6. Lakes, Rivers, Oceans

I go to a college on a lake and I live alongside a river, so I know first hand how amazing our bodies of water are. They’re more than just beautiful, they’re essential to our way of life and deserve some recognition.

7. ACC

Speaking of Free Market Environmentalism, this Thanksgiving I’m especially thankful for ACC and you should be too. ACC is making incredible strides to change the narrative on environmentalism and we’re only getting started! Every single one of us at ACC is incredibly passionate and determined to continue protecting our amazing planet!
