Making small changes can have big results. These simple tips from Botanic Choice can help the environment and also improve one's health.

Love the Earth and improve your health at the same time.

The 40th anniversary of Earth Day will be celebrated on April 22, 2010. Botanic Choice, retailer of herbal remedies and homeopathy, has released three eco-friendly tips to go green and improve one's health at the same time.

Stop Idling Your Car
Idling for more than 10 seconds wastes more gas than restarting the engine. Turn off the ignition when idling in traffic or waiting in the car.

How this helps
Idling pollutes the air and creates a health hazard. Along with emitting unhealthy smog, idling tailpipes spew out carbon dioxide, a main heat-trapping gas. These pollutants have been linked to respiratory and heart health issues, and other life threatening concerns.

Buy local
Fruits and vegetables are available all year long, but they've often been shipped from other countries. It takes a lot of cartons, ships and trucks to get them to the neighborhood grocer. A better, tastier solution is stocking up on fresh produce at local farmers’ markets and storing it in the freezer or canning for future use.

How this helps
Buying locally grown produce supports local food systems and organic farming. It also saves on gas and energy consumption. In addition, produce can lose important nutrients while in transit.

Try green supplements to live healthier
The reason “green” supplements are called green is because they contain essential green compounds found in vitamin-rich plants like broccoli, kelp, chlorella, grapefruit, spirulina and more. By removing the water, then packaging while they are at their freshest, the integrity of the entire vitamin complex is retained.

How this helps
When ingesting herbal remedies like green supplements, the body doesn’t have to draw on its own reserve, which allows it to absorb missing nutrients easily and efficiently.
