Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day, everyone! Seize the day and get outside to enjoy nature. And, perhaps make a few resolutions for nature too. Here are five I think are pretty easy to accomplish:

1) Start recycling, or become better at it. Find out what your area recycles and make sure you follow guidelines.

2) Turn off the tap when you brush your teeth. It saves tons of water.

3) Begin a compost pile. (Here’s how I do it.)

4) Eat locally. Find your nearest farmer’s market and pay it a visit.

5) Consider supporting an environmental organization. My favorite is The Nature Conservancy. (Also, they have an Everyday Environmentalist page that gives more great tips on green living.)

Celebrate Earth Day with me. What are your favorite sustainable ideas?

  1. Loved all your tips… it’s high time the rest of us started acting on them.
    Happy Earth Day to you too! 😀

  2. Great tips! I’ve been wanting to start one, I don’t know why I always thought it would be difficult. These are very simple instructions to follow something my daughter and I can certainly keep up with. A great project for this coming summer as she’s been wanting to do some fun planting. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
