Earth Day is Sunday and so many people ask me what they can do to celebrate.  Here are some ideas:

  •  Visit your favorite park, take a hike, pick up trash.  Stay on trails and pack out what you pack in.
  •  Make an extra effort to recycle & compost.  Not all of the trash you find is trash; check to see if it is recyclable.
  •  For your children, or yourself, turn some of your household recyclables into pieces art.  Egg cartons and paint go together really well.
  •  Minimize use of paper. 
  •  As you shop, remember to take your reusable bags.
  •  Take the delicious restaurant leftovers home by taking your container to a restaurant.  You will be pleasantly surprised by how much restaurants and understand and will appreciate this gesture.
  •  Most of all, get outside and enjoy the beauty around you.
