In an effort to live a more intentional, holistic lifestyle, I have shifted my energy to acts that keep me feeling motivated and whole. I have started taking note of the exercise routines and healthier food options that fuel a happier, more productive me. I have also made a point to stay hydrated and improve the quality of my shut-eye. (So long, Facebook before bed!)Inspired by Earth Day, I realized could broaden my lifestyle changes and incorporate acts that also support the planet. With a little research and an revived perspective, I began to notice the countless simple opportunities around me.  Whenever I could, I traded grocery store stops for farmers' markets runs, opted to use by bike over my car and took on a more active recycling role. Quickly, these everyday improvements incited a refreshed outlook and a stronger sense of confidence. Collectively, my petite modifications were building into something bigger, something that showed I could make a difference. When I heard that PepsiCo had the same recycling approach, I took note. With a goal to increase beverage container recycling rate to 50% by 2018, PepsiCo has begun implementing innovative ways to bring accessible recycling to communities around the country.Their mission is simple: bigger change starts with one bottle, with one person, with one action. Easy enough, right?

 And, as if I needed another kick of inspiration, their recent survey on recycling motivations offered very surprising results: recycling ranks higher as a positive behavior trait than being well-traveled, having a graduate degree or a hefty bank account.

Here's to showing off our best side while making the world a cleaner and better place. Happy Earth Day, Clementines.
