Don’t Just Wear Green. 4 Tips to Celebrate Earth Day

Don’t Just Wear Green. 4 Tips to Celebrate Earth Day

Earth Day is all about appreciating and protecting our natural resources. This upcoming Tuesday marks the 44th Earth Day, and while we all may acknowledge the day, it can be a challenge to think of ways to celebrate it beyond wearing green.

However, there are plenty of ways to make the most of Earth Day that help keep you, and the planet, healthy.

Enjoy the Outdoors
What better way to celebrate the Earth than by going out and enjoying it? Whether you walk, run, skate, skip, or bike, take some time on Tuesday (and every day) to go outside. Doing so will increase your appreciation for the planet, and you’ll fit some exercise into your day.

Eco-Friendly Easter Eggs
Easter is on Sunday and Earth Day is on Tuesday, which makes it the perfect time to celebrate the two days at once. Instead of buying packaged dye full of artificial dyes for your eggs, go the natural route. Cranberry and grape juices can be used, or you can experiment and make your own dyes.

Eat Earth-friendly foods
It’s a fact that some foods are more Earth-friendly than others. They add nutrients back into the Earth and provide shelter for wildlife. In many cases, the most Earth-friendly foods are grown and made locally without creating greenhouse gasses or using fossil fuels. Quinoa, honey, and shade-grown chocolate are all delicious Earth- and health-friendly options.

Plant Something
A great way to celebrate Earth Day is to plant something, be it a houseplant, tree, or an entire garden. If you go the garden route, not only will you be adding more green into the world, but you’ll also be supplying yourself with fresh fruit and vegetables all season long!

It seems that the key ingredient to making things called milk is the colour white, so, you could add…

I use an olive oil spread, but the premise is the same.

So important! Keep paying in forward! Thanks.
