Earth Day Ideas

box with books inside. outside says free books help yourself

Earth Day (April 22) reminds us of our personal and collective responsibility to preserve and protect our environment. For many the word “environment” means the natural world: the mountains, forests, rivers, oceans, animals, and the air around us. To others, the environment brings to mind the green movement, and “reduce, reuse, recycle.”

  • Turn off appliances and lights that are not in use.
  • Turn off the sink faucet while lathering your hands
    or brushing your teeth.
  • Take shorter showers.
  • “Upcycle” unwanted items or objects before trashing
  • Recycle paper, plastic, cardboard, and cans instead of trashing them.

The conditions of all our surrounding environments often determine whether we can live safe, healthy, and satisfying lives.
