Every year on April 22nd, Earth Day is celebrated to demonstrate support for environmental protection and conservation. This day is the perfect time to take a step back to appreciate Mother Earth and consider eco-friendly habits that can help it. We can always do better in the mission of helping our planet. Here are 5 easy yet ecological ways to celebrate Earth Day.
1. Use a refillable water bottle: Ditch the plastic water bottles and invest in a refillable one. When you use a reusable bottle, you’re avoiding the harmful chemicals and effects of plastic bottles while also minimizing waste.
2. Plant a tree: Whether you plant one in your backyard or donate to a tree-planting initiative, the more trees we have on Earth, the better. Trees not only produce oxygen and filter out pollutants to clean the air, but they also help lower greenhouse gas emissions.
3. Go meatless once a week: Reducing consumption of meat can help contain production of greenhouse gases that impact climate change. It can also help lessen the demand for precious environmental resources such as land, water, and energy.
4. Avoid using your car: Make sure to ditch the car and take your bike instead. Not only is this a great way to help reduce carbon emissions, but it will also get your moving, which of course will benefit your overall wellness.
5. Use reusable bags: Every disposable plastic bag that ends up in the ocean or countryside is a danger to fish, birds and mammals. Using reusable bags instead could save the lives of more than a million seabirds and 100,000 marine animals every year.
