Welcome to Earth Day, a day where people come together to try and help make a difference to the environment.
You can’t have failed to have seen the reports regarding the huge amount of plastic pollution over the last few months. Why not join in the campaign to help look after the Earth?
Forget New Year’s resolutions (you broke it already, right?) This year, Make an Earth Day 2018 resolution.
We know that small green actions we take in our lives help protect the environment, improve our lives, and influence others. One green step at a time and we will see big impact. There’s strength in numbers! Together, we can make a big difference.
So, let’s get started.
This year’s campaign is focused on actions to End Plastic Pollution, so you can consider giving up single-use plastic, like plastic straws or water bottles or plastic bags. If you have a collection of bags already, resolve to carry some with you for when you are shopping. Put some bags in the car, in your handbag or jacket pocket. Aim to not have to get a plastic bag from the shop if at all possible. Calculate your plastic waste, then resolve to reduce it, one action at a time.
Maybe you’ll resolve to participate in local beach or park clean-ups or simple pick up trash when you see it. You could resolve to buy produce locally to reduce your carbon footprint. How about biking or taking public transport once a week to work or carpool with coworkers? You could resolve to plant your own garden or plant a tree.
