Earth Day is a wonderful time to appreciate the Earth and try to give back for all she has given us. Why should it only be one day out of the year though? There is no reason we cannot do little things for the Earth everyday! Without all of the wonderful gifts we receive we would have nothing and it is our responsibility to do all we can to replenish, restore and renew.
5 simple things we can do everyday!
Pick up garbage, even if its not
ours just pick it up and put it in the trash.
With that being said, don’t
litter! Carry a bag with you to throw garbage in if you think you
will need it and then dispose of that properly.
Don’t smoke! Not only will this
help the planet and the air for others it will do you a world of
Recycle, there are so many things
we throw out that can easily be put in a different bin for recycling
Upcycle! There are also a lot of
ways we can reuse things ourselves. You can turn a milk jug into a
watering can by just poking some holes in the top! We will be
posting more about up-cycling in the future so bookmark this as we
will add links here.
Remember, as the Native Americans once
said: The Earth is not left for us by our ancestors it is borrowed
from our children. Let’s leave them the kind of planet they deserve.
