Happy Earth Day from everyone at WickerCentral.com.
Looking for easy, affordable ways to celebrate outdoors today? Here are some ideas to get you outside and giving back to our planet.
Plant a Tree
No, we’re not joking. One single tree can absorb as much as 2,000 pounds of carbon dioxide during its lifetime. Thankfully, there are plenty of agencies you can connect with that will help you find the right place to plant, or you can simply plant one in your backyard.
Pick up Litter
Maybe this isn’t the most glamorous suggestion, but picking up litter is crucial for the health of your local plants, animal, and environment. Whether you clean up your front yard, the neighborhood gutters, walking down the street, or even in your favorite park, simply taking a few moments to pick up waste and either recycle or dispose of it properly can have a huge impact.
Visit a Park
Take some time today to visit state park, a national park, or even your local park right down the street. Enjoy your favorite park with your family and show how much it matters to have these resources available to your community.
Start a Garden
You don’t have to have a big backyard space to try your hand at gardening. Even if you live in a small apartment, you can try container or vertical gardening, so that you don’t need a lot of space. Garden will provide your family with fresh veggies, herbs, or flowers.
Don’t Stop at Today
Earth Day is a fantastic holiday to celebrate outdoors, but don’t stop at today. Try to enjoy your environment every day in little ways. It will make you happier, healthier, and have more appreciation for your neighborhoods and communities.
