The Steinkeller Brothers, Aron Steinkeller, Stephan Steinkeller, and Christian Steinkeller, are working on a project to improve the environment of the world. Their mission is to protect the rainforest and environment. They believe all changes start with a small group of people. They’ve worked hard to spread the word and have thousands of followers on their instagram, @steinkellerbrothers and their facebook, Steinkeller Brothers. Here is the expert advice from the steinkeller brothers on helping our environment:

 

DITCH DISPOSABLES

 

Say goodbye to plastic and paper utensils, bottles, and bags and opt for a BPA-free reusable water bottle, a water purifier for your home faucet, and reusable utensils. Insider tip: If you’re a lover of food delivery, check if they have a “green” option and use your own silverware at home.

 

USE REUSABLE TOTE BAGS

 

Keep a stash of eusable totes in places you frequent daily like your car, work, and kitchen, so you want be tempted to reach for a plastic bag the next time you’re out grocery shopping or running errands. If you don’t have a reusable tote reserve, check out this cute striped tote from Baggu that easily folds to fit in small spaces and holds up to 50 pounds.

 

START A CARPOOL CLUB

 

If a colleague lives close to you, why not save the planet by lowering carbon emissions and gas money during your work commute? The same thought should be applied to errands as well! The more the merrier.

 

REDUCE WASTEFUL PACKAGING

 

You know exactly what we’re talking about. You open up a pint-sized product in a box three times the size with loads of bubble wrap, paper, and who-knows-what else. The only way to make a change is for us to vote with our dollar and give the right feedback to retailers. For example, thanks to Mama Eco, you can request less packaging in less than 10 seconds from Amazon!

 

USE RECHARGEABLE BATTERIES

 

Why is it that we always run out of batteries when we need them most? Invest in rechargeable batteries that help reduce waste, and simply make life a whole lot easier.

 

OPT FOR A LOW-FLOW SHOWER HEAD

 

We’re not pressuring you, but you can reduce your water pressure (get it?) with a low-flow shower head by just a little and reap some serious benefits — all while you stay squeaky clean. According to the EPA, if every household in the U.S. installed a low-flow shower head, we could save more than 250 billion gallons of water annually, supplying more than 2.5 million U.S. homes with water for a year.
