Earth Day is an annual event that is celebrated on April 22 each year.

Events are normally held throughout the world that demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated by the Earth Day Network, and celebrated in more than 192 countries each year. Here are a few ideas for Earth Day!

Planting a Tree

Planting a tree is fantastic for the environment and for the air around your home. There is a wide variety of trees available, and choosing one ideal for both your landscape and location is key.

Consider the weather, space needed, as well as how large the tree will grow in both height and girth.

Ways to Promote Earth Day

There are countless opportunities to partake not only today, but every day. Here is a list of popular ideas that help the environment.

Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle

Conserve Water. Take a shower that might be five minutes instead of ten! Use your sprinkler for your lawn during the early morning rather than mid-day with the sun in full force.

Consider sustainable products and services in your local community.

Use energy-efficient light bulbs. If permissible, solar energy is a great feature if you can take advantage of it for your home.
