Our Earth is a priceless commodity that we often take for granted. Each year, it is important to give back to the Earth that gives, so much to us. Celebrating Earth Day is not only a great way to give back but if you have children, it’s a great way to teach them life lessons. Here are 5 ways you can celebrate Earth Day at home:
Plant a Tree: Planting a tree in your yard is a timeless tradition for Earth Day. It is, also, a great way to add value to your house. You can plant a barrier of evergreen trees and bushes to give you a more secluded feel, or plant a simple tree in the perfect spot that you can watch grow for years to come.
Brighten Up Your Lawn: Pick out beautiful vibrant flowers to plant in your flower bed. Flowers may seem like pretty decorations, but they help give oxygen to the Earth and they play a vital role in our ecosystem. Purples, oranges, and reds will help attract beautiful butterflies and birds.
Make a Lawn Masterpiece: Many artists use old metal swings, plastic, and aluminum to create masterpieces in their yard. Instead of throwing out all the old junk in your garage, spend time as a family creating a lawn ornament to celebrate a healthy Earth.
Start Recycling: If you don’t already recycle, start a recycling bin for plastics, paper, or aluminum. If you recycle, try to add more to your recycling each day. The more we recycle, the healthier are Earth will be not only in our time but for generations.
Ride Your Bike or Walk: As the weather warms up, riding a bike or walking short distances can really help the environment. Instead of hopping in your exhaust polluting car, ride your bike to the store or walk to the park. Each time you don’t use your car, you prevent harmful pollutants from destroying our Earth.
Even though Earth Day happens once a year, you can do these things all year long to keep the Earth healthy. Make a plan with your family to do your part to celebrate the beautiful planet we live in and protect it for the next generation. Every little bit you do helps!
