Earth Day Ideas

Earth Day (April 22) reminds us of our personal and collective responsibility to preserve and protect our environment. For many the word “environment” means the natural world: the mountains, forests, rivers, oceans, animals, and the air around us. To others, the environment brings to mind the green movement, and “reduce, reuse, recycle.”

  • Turn off appliances and lights that are not in use.
  • Turn off the sink faucet while lathering your hands
    or brushing your teeth.
  • Take shorter showers.
  • “Upcycle” unwanted items or objects before trashing
  • Recycle paper, plastic, cardboard, and cans instead of trashing them.

The conditions of all our surrounding environments often determine whether we can live safe, healthy, and satisfying lives.
