Today is Earth Day

Each year on April 22, more than a billion people celebrate Earth Day to protect the planet from things like pollution and deforestation.  Here are some specific things you can do:
  • Look for ways to Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle our natural resources in order to send less waste to landfills.
  • Get involved in environmental work in your local community by cleaning up parks and other efforts to make communities greener.
  • Plant trees.
  • Buy reusable bags that you can use over and over.
  • Conserve energy at home by turning off lights and electronics when they are not in use.
  • Reduce paper waste by thinking twice before printing things, whether you're at home or at work.
  • Walk, ride a bike, carpool, or take public transportation to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (and get more exercise).
  • Pick up litter.
  • Turn off the tap while you brush your teeth or wash dishes.
  • Buy local to reduce shipping distances for food.  (Doing that also supports local providers).

I tend to use more water than I need, leaving tap on while I wash and move about. Good reminders.
