Each year on April 22, the world celebrates Earth Day. This special day was created to promote awareness about our planet and how to take better care of it. Fortunately, there are simple steps you can take to contribute to a healthier environment for you and future generations. Consider these four tips:
Trees are more than aesthetically pleasing. They contribute to a healthier environment! Trees clean the air, produce oxygen, fight climate change, and save energy. Head to your local garden center, purchase a tree and soil, and plant a tree with your family!
Ditch Plastic Bag
Several years ago, the Environmental Protection Agency announced that roughly 32 million tons of waste that Americans produce each year is plastic! Plastic bags end up in landfills, a site that buries waste into the ground. To keep our ground healthy, use reusable bags instead of plastic bags when you shop.
Update Your Light Bulbs
New light bulbs, specifically LED or energy-efficient bulbs, drastically minimize greenhouse gases that are emitted into the air. To minimize these gases (and save money on your electric bill), update your light bulbs.
Volunteer with a Local Organization
There are plenty of local organizations that are dedicated to improving the Earth, especially on Earth Day! Invite your friends and family members to participate in a volunteer clean-up day or take it upon yourself to clean up your neighborhood. Your simple act can have ripple effects on your neighbors, the environment, and the planet!
