In the words of Khalil Gibran…“Trees are the poems that the earth writes upon the sky.”

Today is internationally known as Earth Day.  That means we have the opportunity to do our part to save our planet.  Actually, I believe every day is Earth Day.

So what can you do, you ask…here are a few ideas to get you started, per the National Ocean Service:

  1. Plant a tree, which provides food and oxygen.
  2. Conserve your water usage.
  3. Use long-lasting light bulbs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  4. Shop at more secondhand or thrift stores.
  5. Buy less plastic and use more reusable shopping bags.
  6. Reduce your carbon footprint by eating more plants.
  7. Make more sustainable seafood choices.
  8. Be sure to cut down on food waste. Provide your own carry-out containers when dining at restaurants.
  9. Reduce transport overconsumption–take the train or bus vs. driving. Consider the possibility of more biking.
  10. Avoid sending toxic chemicals into our waterways.  Start by using non-toxic chemicals at your home as well as in your office.
  11. Increase the time you spend in nature-rich settings.  It helps to improve both your physical and mental health.
  12. Volunteer for cleanups in your community and your neighborhood.
  13. Talk about climate change, particularly its impact on our health and wellbeing.
  14. Discuss sustainability with your friends, family, colleagues, neighbors and leaders.
