Here are some ways to celebrate Earth Day that will truly make a difference

Plant a Tree

Keep our planet green by planting a tree or other plants. Don’t forget that we need plants and trees to survive.

Ride Your Bike

Cut down on your carbon footprint by biking or walking to your destination. The fuel that comes from your car is bad for the environment.

Volunteer

Find a local Earth Day event and sign up to help with their cause. You could end up educating others on the importance of this day.

Unplug

Before you leave the house today make sure to unplug your chargers and appliances. Also, don’t forget to turn off all the lights and any other electronics.

Clean up Trash

Take a walk down by the creek and pick up trash. You can also do this in your neighborhood or at a park you enjoy.

Make a Donation

Do your research and find an organization dedicated to protecting our planet. Making a donation, no matter how small, is a huge help.

Go Meatless

Try not to eat meat today. There are plenty of yummy options out there for you to indulge in.

Recycle

You should be recycling all the time, but if you can’t, make sure you do it today of all days. Reuse your water bottles and plastic bags, too!
