How To: Celebrate Earth Day

Earth Day Carrollton TXA Few Ideas For Celebrating The Planet

April 22nd is Earth Day, and although you should celebrate and protect the earth all year round it is a perfect day to take your level of care for the planet to the next level. So you can celebrate the holiday, try implementing some of these ideas.

  • Recycle: Just tossing your plastic bottles in the recycle bin is a great first step, but you can do so much more than that. Look for ways to creatively reuse items and consider composting.
  • Hoof It: Try checking out restaurants and shops that are within walking distance to your house. Who knows, you might discover a new favorite place that you will not have to designate a driver to enjoy over the weekend! Also, set up a carpooling network at your work. Not only will you be saving the planet, you can also help yourself and your coworkers save on gas money.
  • Switch Your Bulbs: The next time your light bulb burns out, do not just replace it with another incandescent one that will quickly burn out. Instead, switch to a CFL or LED bulb. Not only are these lighting sources more energy efficient, but they also last much longer.
  • Monitor The Temp: Did you know that for every one degree you adjust your thermostat towards the outdoor temperature, you reduce the amount of energy you consume by 1 percent? Keep your thermostat as high as is comfortable in the summer, and as low as you can in the winter to reduce your energy use and your utility bill.
