Anything to help our environment is a perfect thing to do on Earth Day and every day. Help kids learn ways minimize what ends up in our landfills by coming up with creative ways to reuse household items, recyclables, and old toys. If your home doesn’t already have one, create a recycling center. If you already have a recycling center, take another look at how your household is using it and how you could improve your efforts. Walk or ride a bike, cars contribute greatly to air pollution, climate change, and have a negative impact on human health. They produce dangerous gases such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides, which then enter our atmosphere that we have to breath in. Plant an organic vegetable or herb garden. Make a compost pile. Composting can help you use kitchen scraps (saving landfill space) and add nutrients to your soil. Make a bird feeder using a milk carton or pine cones. Whatever you choose to do, do it with a happy heart and know that you are making a difference!
