5 Activities You Can Do for Earth Day!

It's Earth Day! To celebrate we've curated a list of a few activities you can do today to be environmentally friendly & have a positive impact on the planet. We challenge you to do one of these to support Earth day or come up with your own!

Put Out a Bird Feeder

Build or buy a bird feeder and watch the many different breeds of birds stop by and say thank you! Recycled juice cartons are a great homemade option and are a fun craft project to do with the family! 

Go for a Hike

Check out local trail conditions before heading out, make sure you have the recommended gear packed, and head out on the trails to enjoy nature! Take some time you would have spent watching tv and go for a long hike or nature walk. 

Plant Something

Take this time to start that garden you've always wanted! It's the perfect day to start your spring planting, whether it be flowers or veggies, planting trees in your backyard or transferring sprouts into the garden beds. Take today to have a direct impact on the Earth's growth!

Commute to Work

No longer working from home? Do you have an easy commute to work? Can you do so sustainably? Try biking or walking to work if at all possible. If you have to drive, try carpooling with some coworkers to have the least impact. Make sure to change your air filter regularly to keep your emissions as low as possible.

Unplug

Sit down, relax, and put away all your electronics. Make today about nature, the outdoors and the beauty of it all around you. Whether you stay in your own backyard or get to go somewhere with a view, stop and enjoy the nature around you, uninterrupted and unplugged. 

 

No matter how you decide to engage today, and every day, try to find ways to restore our planet and get in touch with nature!
