Take action

Now that you’ve celebrated our planet and learned about protecting it, how can you take action?

Go to a local cleanup

One way to make a difference is to get to work in your local community. With a quick little Google search, you can find various Earth Day activities from cleanups to tree plantings.

Go green

If you ask us, every day is Earth Day. And by that we mean, every day we should be working to better protect our planet!

This Earth Day, take some time to think of little changes you can implement to do so — whether it’s taking reusable bags to the grocery shop or composting.

Go support sustainable brands

One of my favorite places to shop sustainably is at a thrift shop; however, your local Goodwill may not always have what you need. Don’t fret! There are plenty of brands that are working towards a sustainable future, whether it’s by using recycled materials or implementing other forms of sustainable production.

So, celebrate our planet this 2021 Earth Day with a purchase you can feel good about!

Happy Earth Day!

Earth Day, like every day, is a good time for a walk in the park, sustainable lifestyle changes, and environmental education. Explore other ways to take action this Earth Month and beyond.
