Happy Earth Day!


Happy Earth Day! Earth Day was first celebrated on April 22, 1970, when an estimated 20 million people nationwide attended the inaugural event. Earth is currently 4.5 billion years old and we need to keep it healthy for our future generations. While you may think small changes don't make an impact, they do. It takes only one person to create a chain of events that can improve our lives, our communities, and our planet.

Earth Day is the perfect day to make a pledge to help our planet. Here some ways to lessen your impact on the world and make a difference.

Watch the running water, taking a shower uses less water than filling a bathtub, and by applying a water conserving shower head it also helps lower your water use. Flip the switch, simply turn off the lights when you leave a room. It does make a difference and it saves you money. Carpool, not only does it save you money but it also reduces your carbon footprint. Bring a bag, remember to bring your reusable bags to avoid using paper or plastic bags, especially if you live in a city like San Jose that charges for bags. Buy Organic, organic fruits and vegetables limits the input of toxic chemicals in the air, soil and water. Set your Temperature, setting your thermostat down 2 degrees in the winter and up 2 degrees in the summer could save carbon dioxide emissions. Lastly Grow Green, plants absorb up a large amount of carbon dioxide over time. If you are feeling even more adventurous compost your food waste in your garden, it helps reduce trash that goes to the landfills.

These are just a few easy ways to help our planet. If you have any other tips or suggestions feel free to share them in the comment section below.
