Happy Earth day!
Earth day is the day where you celebrate the home that you and over a billion people live on…earth! Being the homeowners, we should be taking good care of this place we call home (clearly we’re doing a terrible job). On earth day, you can help celebrate the planet by making sure you’re taking care of it.
I have a lot of work to do when it comes to being better at taking care of this home, and I know I’m not the only one. If you’re looking for ways to celebrate earth day that are also easy and simple…keep reading!
Go for a walk or bike ride instead of using your car.
Cars use and release a lot of gas, which then fills and contaminates the earth. If you are able to do so, try celebrating earth day by walking or bike riding to your destinations instead today. Not only does it help lessen the chemicals being emitted, but it’s also great exercise! Who knows, maybe you’ll love it and want to walk or bike ride to your destinations more often!
Volunteer for community cleanup in your city.
Just like we have to keep the houses we live in clean, we also should keep our main home clean too…aka the earth. I will be the first to admit that I could do better in helping keep the planet clean, whether by recycling more or just picking up a random piece of trash that I see on the ground and throwing it away. There’s no better way to celebrate the earth than to help “deep clean” by participating in a community cleanup. A cleanup is where the community volunteers to clean up trash outside. Find out more about cleanups and how you can plan one at earthday.org.
Buy reusable/environmentally friendly products.
Celebrate earth day by buying yourself something nice…and reusable! It’s time to wean off from those plastic bottles and containers, and there’s no better time to do so than on earth day! Celebrate the day by making simple swaps and changing to more environmentally friendly products. If you need product suggestions, check out these eco-friendly products!
It’s important to make sure each and everyone are doing their part to keep the planet clean with the least chemicals possible. Everyone has to start somewhere, and these are perfect ways to celebrate!
