Though it’s important to celebrate Earth Day each year on April 22nd, it’s even more important to celebrate our planet EVERY day! To truly improve our world, it starts with one person committing to make a few changes in everyday behavior. To show you how your actions can lead to a much greater impact on the quality of life on Planet Earth, we created this infographic on how you can help improve the environment.
Take the first steps for a better planet:
- Efficiency is easy with little adjustments.
- Awareness is key, and you can help spread the word.
- Resources are available to help you use less energy and reduce your carbon footprint.
- Trash is treasure.
- Help starts with you. It’s simple.
As warm weather comes along, open the windows, use a fan, and increase your thermostat by just a couple of degrees ( or even turn the A/C off). Give LED light bulbs as a housewarming gift, eat locally sourced fruits and veggies that are in season, and make sustainable living part of your dinner table conversation with your children.
Look into a smart thermostat for your home. See if your office has a ride share program. Even just using a reusable water bottle is a step in the right direction. Whether it’s a craft project for your kids, handmade home decor, or finding unique ways to upcycle. New uses for old things are economical, good for the planet, and will impress your friends.
Be mindful not just on Earth Day, but everyday, to get into food habits and set an example for others.
