Earth Day is April 22, a day to celebrate the many gifts our wonderful planet offers us, and a day to remember that we need to take care of Earth, respect her, and maintain her for future generations to enjoy.
In the past we have provided many stories and ideas on ways to reduce and recycle your garbage, and live life in a more harmonious, earth-friendly manner. I think one of the biggest things everyone could do is to think first about the amount of trash we produce on a daily basis and figure out ways to reduce it, even if it’s on a small scale. That cup you bought your morning coffee in, the bag that your lunch is in or will be in when you buy it later, and the water bottle you buy to quench your thirst today — are the reusable? Will they wind up in the trash or recycling bin? In honor of Earth Day why don’t you try something a bit different to help reduce the amount of garbage we all produce, or if you are already doing that, share your ideas with us.
Here are a few links to various articles we’ve run in the past about reducing, reusing and recycling:
And in honor of Earth Day why not spend a little time outside today just to look around and realize what this wonderful planet has to offer. Happy Earth Day.
