Ways 2 Go Green: Make Every day, Earth Day!!

1. Repurpose glass jars instead of using paper or plastic cups. Glass jars are a reusable alternative that reduces the amount of plastic in the world.

2. Don’t use plastic bags in grocery stores. Instead use your own reusable bags! Reusing your own bags lessens the number of plastic bags in our oceans, which significantly benefits those habitats.

3. Conserve water by turning off the tap. Conserving water saves energy, which is needed to filter, heat and pump water to your home, so reducing your water use also reduces your carbon footprint.

4. Read labels on household items for toxic and harmful chemicals. These items when thrown away, make their way into landfills. The chemicals left in their containers can make their way into the ground and into plants.

5. Start a compost pile with scraps of food. A few compostable items include orange peels, banana peels, eggshells, and tea bags.
