How to Honor Earth Day Every Day
With Earth Day coming up, now's the time to really put in the effort to make a difference in the environment around you. It's not just enough to do it once a year though, it's important to make a consistent effort everyday to help combat climate change and make a positive impact in your community.
You can help honor Earth Day today and everyday with a few of these tips:
Conserve Energy At Home
- Utilize natural light by opening up the curtains and letting the sunlight in.
- Turn off the lights and electronics when you're not using them.
- Get a smart thermostat so you can adjust the temperature when you're not home.
- Change your air filters regularly.
Follow The 3 R’s
- Opt for electronic mail instead of paper mail.
- Use your own reusable bags when shopping.
- Choose products in packaging that you know can be recycled.
- Use a compost bin.
Your old worn-out smartphones, refrigerators, washing machines, TVs, computers, and more can be recycled for free by stores, local governments, and manufacturers. Don’t keep them at home or send them to landfills. Recycle them and reduce pollution while saving natural resources.
Give Your Car a Break
The more cars on the road, the more vehicle pollution in the air that can harm our health. Try carpooling, using public transportation, walking, or riding a bike when you can to help cut down on greenhouse gases.
Replace the Bulbs in Your Home
LED bulbs are a little more expensive than the traditional incandescent light bulbs, but they're 80% more energy efficient, have a longer lifetime, and generate a lot less heat.
The next time you go out shopping, try to choose more eco-friendly products. Organic products come from natural materials and use more sustainable processes that are better for the environment rather than inorganic products that use industrial chemicals.
Don’t just wait for Earth Day to make a positive impact on the environment. Start now and stay consistent!
