Ways To Celebrate Earth Day
How You Can Make The Most Of The Holiday
Earth Day is just around the corner, but if you have not thought about how you will celebrate, fear not! There are a number of ways that you can make a difference for the Earth that sustains us all on April 22nd and beyond. Consider celebrating by utilizing one of these ideas.
- Minimize Your Driving:Did you know that commuting accounts for over a third of all car travel? Set up a carpool for this Wednesday or take public transportation to get to work. Who knows, you might like the money you will save on gas and the minimization of your carbon footprint enough to make it a habit!
- Buy In Bulk:When you buy things in bigger packages, you reduce the amount of material that has to be used to package them. Try to purchase your food and household products in ways that will minimize the amount of waste from their packaging. While you are at it, pick up some non-disposable grocery bags and get in the habit of bringing them on your grocery run.
- Switch It Out:Some small changes around the house can make your home more energy efficient and can reduce your utility bills. Swap out your incandescent bulbs for compact fluorescents, and install a low-flow showerhead.
- Eat Lower On The Food Chain:Producing dairy, eggs, and meat requires significantly more resources than grains and produce. Implement a Meatless Monday or other diet change in your home to reduce the amount of waste created as a result of your meals.
