Celebrate Earth Day With These Easy Tips

For us, every day is Earth day.

Here are a few ways to give your part on mother Earth’s special day.

  1. Are you passionate about certain environmental issues? Volunteer at EARTHDAY.ORG and you can be part of many initiatives, both local and global, to help our Earth.
  2. Enjoy spending time outside? Support the Great Global Cleanup and pick up trash while enjoying your outdoor activities. It is a great way to save that plastic bottle cap from the landfill while you are on your morning walk!
  3. Make an impact! Change your diet to fight climate change! Try participating in meatless Mondays! Check out some plant-based recipes.
  4. Try a foodprint calculator to find out exactly how your meals impact the planet. 
  5. Plastic pollution is one of the most important environmental problems that we face today. Calculate your personal plastic consumption, then use our tips to help break free from single-use plastics! 
  6. Most people by now know that single-use plastic grocery bags are going the way of the dinosaurs. Although they are billed for their “convenience,” they are extremely inconvenient for the planet. Pledge to use a reusable grocery bag
  7. Use a reusable water bottle to make a big impact on your plastic consumption.
  8. Always read labels! Use environmentally-friendly, non-toxic cleaning products to avoid washing toxic chemicals down the drain! 
  9. Sign up for a 100% renewable energy plan!
