Earth Day may only occur once a year but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t celebrate our planet Earth the other 364 days of the year. Below are five ways that you can celebrate planet earth every single day.
Turn Off the Lights
Turn the lights off and unplug any unused appliances. Get into the habit of turning off the lights when leaving a room in your home and unplugging any appliance as soon as you’re finished using it.
Recycle everything you can. Recycling benefits energy, water, oil, and many other resources. Recycling is easy, so it’s important to start this encouraging habit and help others do the same.
Carry Reusable Grocery Bags
Reduce the number of plastics bags that you use by carrying reusable bags in your vehicle. Reusable grocery bags are not a hassle to carry and this small change can make a big difference for the environment. Use a Reusable Water Bottle Billions of pounds of plastic end up in the ocean every year, forming city-sized islands of waste, and disposable plastic water bottles are a huge contributor to this issue. Do a favor for planet earth and your wallet by getting into the habit of only using a reusable water bottle.
Make an Effort to Carpool
Introduce the idea of starting to carpool a day or two out of the week. Carpooling helps cut down the amount of pollution released into the air and also benefits you. Carpooling saves you money on gas and car maintenance.
Happy Earth Day 2020!
