Celebrate Mother Earth

Earth Day

Today is the day we celebrate Mother Earth. While Earth Day only falls once a year, we can each make a difference in our local communities today to make a global difference throughout the year.

Here are a few ways you can help:

  1. If you already recycle at home, great! How about extending this virtuous habit to your office? Although many sites now have recycling procedures in place, many are not as comprehensive as they should be. If your office only recycles paper, for example, find out how to extend the program to include glass, metal, and plastic. Many times, your local government can help by providing containers, compacters, and collection.
  2. The buy-local movement has taken off in recent years, with 8,500 registered farmer’s markets throughout the United States. And for good reason: local, in-season produce is tastier, healthier, and better for the environment, as it requires much less in the way of transportation and packaging. As you interact with the seller, you’ll learn important information about how your food is grown. And, finally, you’ll be supporting your local economy – a win-win-win.
  3. What you do in your community can have a big impact on the world. Trees clean the air and provide oxygen. They help us prevent soil erosion and can conserve energy. They are also beautiful.
  4. Letting fresh air circulate throughout your home is not only refreshing, it also helps reduce energy dependence and your carbon footprint for a day.
