If you’re trying to eat healthier, including more fruits and vegetables into your diet from your local farmer’s market is a great first step towards a healthier you and a healthier planet, explained the Cleveland Clinic.

While eating a plant-based diet can lower your risk for chronic diseases, buying locally sourced produce also means your food doesn’t have to be transported across the country.

Officials also suggest that you find an activity that encourages you to get outside and enjoy nature all while lowering your carbon footprint. That could include biking, gardening, or even taking a walk.

You can also conserve energy at home by remembering to turn off lights and using a shorter cycle on the clothes dryer.
