Even though Earth Day was on April 22, doesn’t mean that you can’t celebrate Earth Day every day of the year. Planet Earth does so much for us, why not give back and live a more Earth-conscious life every day? How did you celebrate Earth Day? What plans do you hope to put into place to help continue the Earth Day celebration throughout the year.
5 Simple Ways to Be More Earth-Friendly
Here are five simple ways to be more Earth-friendly throughout the year:
1.) Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Ever since we moved to the countryside, we’ve been really focused on recycling. We created a little system in our home to help us recycle every day. Our recycling company comes by every two weeks to empty our bin. It makes my heart so happy when our bin is full by the time the truck rounds the corner. It’s also important to reduce waste and reuse items as often as possible.
2.) Use Less Water
It’s incredible to think about how much water a person uses in a single day. Keep an eye on your water use and be sure to decrease it little by little every day. Cut down your shower time, shut off the water while brushing your teeth, be more conscious while washing dishes … every little bit helps.
3.) Plant a Trees (or trees)
It’s spring which means it’s all about a time for renewal. When you’re planning your garden this year, think about planting a tree. We just picked a tree a few days ago from our local home improvement store. We planted it at the corner of our garage. I love pulling up to the house and seeing the tree. It will be so much fun to watch it grow over the years.
4.) Support Locally Grown Products
Support your local farmers, go to farmers’ markets, and keep an eye out for local produce at your local grocery store. It’s so important to support your local farmers. Nothing beats slicing up a tomato or buttering corn that was grown just a few miles down the road.
5.) Buy Products that are Earth-Friendly
There are so many companies that are Earth-friendly. All you need to do is keep your eye out while shopping or do a bit of research before shopping. One of my favorite Earth-friendly companies is Tom’s of Maine. Tom’s of Maine® proudly introduces new products launching in the Target Made to Matter collection. All products are free of artificial dyes, fragrances, flavors and preservatives, and are never tested on animals.
