Earth Day - Doing Your Part

Earth Day: 5 Easy Ways to Do Your Part

Earth Day is the day we celebrate the planet we call home. Showing nature that you appreciate it doesn’t have to mean making a grand gesture. Here are 5 easy ways you can do your part this Earth Day and contribute to the planet’s future.

Plant Something

What better way is there to celebrate nature than to plant something? Planting a seed, tree, herb garden, or planning a huge vegetable garden is a great way to get outside and give back to the Earth for Earth Day. There’s an option for you no matter where you live or what your level of ambition is. If you plant an herb or vegetable garden, you’re not only investing in the planet, but also in your future. You’ll save money by picking herbs and vegetables from your own yard, balcony, or windowsill in lieu of shopping at the grocery store.

Bike to Work

If you live close enough to your job to be able to bike to work on Earth Day, the benefits are sevenfold. You’ll be saving money on gas and saving the Earth from car pollution. Plus, you’re getting good exercise and breathing in fresh, clean air on earth day. If you don’t own a bike, you can easily rent one from a bikeshare and ride all day for a small cost.

Commit to Recycling

Earth Day is the perfect day to commit to doing something green and good for the environment year round. Recycling does come at an extra cost, but if you’re passionate about conservation and giving back to Mother Nature, the cost is small next to the reward of creating a greener future. Most neighborhoods and apartment communities have recycling services partnered with their trash services, so talking to your HOA or landlord is a great way to find out all of the information you need to get started.

Build for Birds

If animals are your passion, show your love on Earth Day by doing something for them. Building a birdhouse is the easiest and most cost effective way to contribute to the animal kingdom, but options are unlimited. If you’re more ambitious, you can start a bee farm right in your backyard. You can also donate to wildlife conservation programs around the United States and abroad.

Go Outside

The easiest and most budget-friendly way to celebrate Earth Day is to simply go outside and enjoy all that Mother Nature has to offer. Instead of going to the gym, go for a run along a nature trail or a hike in a National Park. Save money by packing your lunch and having a picnic rather than going to a restaurant to eat. If you want to plan a romantic, but free Earth Day Date Night, grab a blanket, a bottle of wine, and s’mores ingredients and head outside to watch the stars.
