Earth Month!

Earth Day is celebrated every year on April 22nd and raises awareness and brings communities together to give our planet it needs. This year marks Earth Day’s 45th anniversary and it is still going strong! There are multiple festivals and rallies that occur throughout Earth Month, but we ought to be helping our planet year round.

Even the smallest difference can make a huge impact for our world!

Here are five examples and ways that you can make a difference for not only Earth Month, but for the entire year:

Update light bulbs
Don’t worry; this does not have to be a huge home project! Even changing one light bulb in your home from an old one to a new compact fluorescent bulb will help.

Recycle glass
If glass is not recycled, it can take a million years to decompose! Recycled glass helped reduce air and water pollution.

By just taking two minutes off of your shower routine, you can conserve ten gallons of water.

Use cruise control
Let’s use that fancy button in our cars! When cruise control is on, your vehicle can get up to 15% better gas mileage.

Pay bills online
If everyone paid their bills online instead of getting paper copies, we’d save 18.5 million trees every year, 2.2 billion tons of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, and 1.7 billion pounds of solid waste.
