This Earth Month, don’t leave all of the environmental action to someone else. Take steps towards helping the planet with these simple acts of green. Share these ideas with your friends and family and get everyone you know to join in on the Earth Month challenge.
Help protect a precious resource, water, by doing simple things around your home like taking shorter showers, turning the tap off while you brush your teeth and installing low flow toilets and shower heads. Remember to also water your lawn or garden at night instead of at hotter times of the day, so more H2O will be used by the plants and less will be wasted by being evaporated.
Unplug devises when they are not in use to stop Phantom power. Not only is this good for the planet, it will also help cut down on your electricity bill. You can start family nights that leave the electronics off and encourage unplugged activities like exploring a local park or going for a bike ride.
Lower your impact on the planet by taking a litterless lunch. With the help of reusable containers you can decrease the waste you produce during the day. Just think of the amount of waste you can keep out of a landfill by taking with you a reusable water bottle and coffee cup.
Get your family involved in a Bring Back the Wild campaign to help protect animals and their habitats. For this month, Earth Rangers that raise donations in support for their campaign will be rewarded with limited edition Earth Month rewards.
