Happy Earth Day!!

Happy Earth Day everyone!

Here is a list of 10 meaningful things you can do to help the environment, every little helps when trying to make our planet greener.

  1. Spare the atmosphere a little pollution by walking, biking, or taking public transportation to school or work on Earth Day. Who knows, maybe it will turn into a habit that the city can benefit from.
  2. Recycle! Think of all the trees you could be saving.
  3. Don’t forget your reusable bags! If you are headed shopping today, think about bringing a bag you already have with you rather than purchasing a brand new one from your local supermarket or shop. Carry one with you everywhere you go so you never forget.
  4. Plant some seeds or bulbs in a plant pot or in the garden and watch it grow!
  5. Grow your own herb garden
  6. Be more mindful of how much electricity you are using. Unplug any unused plugs and switch off switches that are not being used. Turn off any lights as you leave a room too.
  7. Bring your water bottle with you today (try to every day) rather than buying a brand new one, let’s try and save on plastic together!
  8. Plant a tree.
  9. Give up chewing gum. You might think that chewing gum is environmentally friendly, but it is actually made from a synthetic rubber, which is plastic. Around 100,000 tonnes of this plastic is thrown away every year, and a lot of it ends up on our streets. Next time you want minty-fresh breath, just brush your teeth rather than chewing on a piece of plastic.
  10. Unsubscribe from junk mail being posted into your letter box and any bank statments/invoices, switch over to paperless if you can. Think about how much paper you can save just by getting bank statements and bills sent electronically.
