We thought Earth Day would be the perfect day to announce some exciting news. Kathy Davis Studios is officially a member of The Energy Cooperative. What does this mean exactly? It means that all of the energy that is used to power our studio comes from 100% green energy sources (primarily Pennsylvania wind farms). Woo-hoo!

We are so happy to be a part of such a great not-for-profit organization. Click here to learn more about The Energy Cooperative.

In the spirit of Earth Day we have also compiled a list of things you can do to help reduce your carbon foot print and scatter joy to our good friend, planet Earth.

1. Buy local and organic: Look for organic or “fair trade” items when shopping at the grocery store. There is a good chance that the food was grown in a more eco-friendly way. Plus, if it was grown locally it didn’t have to travel as far AND you are supporting your local farms.

2. No plastic bottled water: Bottled water has a very large carbon footprint. Try buying a reusable water bottle for your water. Besides reducing your footprint you’ll be saving yourself some money, and who doesn’t like that?

3. Fly direct: If you are traveling somewhere by plane, try booking a direct flight when possible. This is a great way to reduce your footprint. Plus, you’ll get where you are going faster and without the extra stress that comes along with catching additional flights.

4. Unplug: Unplug any appliances that you don’t use regularly. A lot of electronics have a standby setting that still requires energy when not in use. Here are a few examples: Cell phone chargers, TVs, stereos, coffee makers, and computers.

5. Use cold water: Don’t worry, no cold showers here. Try using cold water when you do your laundry. It takes a ton of energy to heat up water, especially when you are doing several loads of laundry.

Happy Earth Day!
