Happy Earth Day! I partnered with Greenworks to share some ideas for celebrating earth day.
Ideas for Celebrating Earth Day:
Plant a Tree
A tree is the best gift you can give to both the earth and yourself! Trees have the ability to suck up carbon dioxide (and provide oxygen). If every person on the planet plants one tree, that amounts to nearly 7 billion new carbon sponges!
Plant a Garden
Try growing some vegetables this summer. If you don’t have the space (or time) for a large traditional garden, try a potted garden or a raised garden bed. Watching the plant cycle is fun, educational and rewarding so roll up your sleeves and dig in the dirt!
What better way to celebrate Earth day than to get out and enjoy all it has to offer? Whether it’s a walk around your neighborhood or a hike in a park, get out and experience nature. It is amazing what a little vitamin d will do for you!
If you don’t already recycle, there is no better time to begin than now! Set up a separate trash can in your kitchen to make it as easy as possible.
Throw a Green Party
The party could be anything from an eco-swap (bring a bag or two of stuff and swap it with your friends) to educating kids on ways they can help the environment (turn off lights when leaving a room, take shorter showers and learning what is recyclable).
I have several blogging friends sharing how they are celebrating Earth Day. Go check out what their ideas for celebrating Earth Day:

One thought on “Ideas for Celebrating Earth Day”
One of the best things our family did was to swap our water guzzling lawn for drought tolerant plants. We cut both water and pesticide usage. And we now see a lot more bees, butterflies and birds outside our house.
