Earth Day Recycling
These are just a few ways you can make a difference for Earth Day. Cleaning up local parks also makes a big impact for countless families and furry friends who go there. Living a greener lifestyle comes in many shapes and forms and every family is different. Find little and big ways to help our planet on a daily basis, both at home and on the go. For starters, plant trees, pick up litter, and reduce consumption of products that create waste as best you can. Teach your kids to do their part, too.
- Weed gardens and plant new flowers, fruits, and vegetables.
- Compost food scraps into nutrient-rich soil.
- Care for plants inside and outside the home.
- Paint or build birdhouses.
- Fill bird feeders with birdseed.
- There are so many options for kids’ gardening and outdoor care!
Earth Day recycling can be a great reminder for tasks we’ve pushed aside. This could be a good time of year to tackle that shredding pile at home. You might also make time to drop off unwanted metal to the scrapyard where it can find a second life. Bring yard waste and cardboard to the township to transform it into mulch, and then come back for mulch in a few weeks. Every little bit helps our world as small things add up to bigger things.
