Earth Day was founded in 1970 as a day of education about environmental issues that affect our planet. Here are ten simple projects you can undertake this year to help make the world a cleaner place.
-Walk or ride your bike to work.
-Purchase reusable grocery bags.
-Compost all food waste.
-Conduct a trash pickup at a local park, school, or in your neighborhood.
-Plant a tree.
-Run full loads of laundry.
-Use phosphate-free detergent.
-Use energy saving light bulbs.
-Utilize natural pesticides.
-Make a commitment to go green in at least five areas of your life for the next year.
The small steps we take today will make a huge difference in the environment tomorrow. Yours, Tara Wilke
