Earth Day, celebrated annually on April 22nd, demonstrates support for environmental protection, inspiring awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s natural environment and how we can preserve Earth’s beauty.
Here are four tips on how you can contribute to the goodness of our world:
1. Save energy and reduce your carbon footprint: Try walking to work one day a week or make sure your driving route tackles all of your errands at one time.
2. Use water efficiently: Make sure your dish and clothes washing machines are full before running a load. Don’t forget to turn off the tap while brushing your teeth!
3. Reduce, reuse, recycle! Keep and wash food containers for other uses and bring re-usable bags on your shopping trips.
4. Make some environmentally protective choices: Protect yourself from the sun by always wearing sunscreen— even on a cloudy day the sun’s rays are powerful enough to damage your skin.
