Let’s Make a Difference This Earth Day!

Let’s all find ways to be a little more eco-friendly in honor of Earth Day.

Today is Earth Day, an occasion that encourages us to take better care of our planet.  While saving the environment sounds like a huge undertaking, it doesn’t have to be.  Even by making small, everyday changes we may create major positive impacts on our planet’s health.  Here are some of the things that we can do to make a difference on Earth Day.

  • Shorten Showers

One of the most considerable sources of household water use comes from showering.  With standard showerheads releasing an average of 2.1 gallons of water per minute, long showers can quickly add up.  To cut down on this water use, we would like to encourage our family members to keep their showers under 10 minutes.  For those of us who can’t be rushed, then we can save water by shutting the shower off while we scrub our hair, wash our bodies, and shave.

  • Reduce our Car Usage

When we drive, we release harmful greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere.  This is why it is important to do our best to use our cars as sparingly as possible.  For instance, we can try walking, biking, or using public transportation to get around.  If we cannot avoid using our cars to commute, we could consider setting up a carpool with our co-workers.  Not only will limiting our car use help the environment, but it will also save us a considerable amount of money on fuel.

  • Plant Trees

This is one of the most traditional Earth Day activities for a reason.  While planting a tree does have symbolic worth, this activity also benefits the environment.  Trees help improve the air quality, provide homes for wildlife, help recycle water, and prevent soil erosion.
