Earth Day

plastic bottlesJust a few days ago, on April 22, it was the Earth Day… So what it is?

Wikipedia says that the Earth Day is an annual day on which events are held worldwide to increase awareness and appreciation of the Earth’s natural environment. Earth Day is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and is celebrated in more than 175 countries every year. In 2009, the United Nations designated April 22 International Mother Earth Day. Earth Day is planned for April 22 in all years at least through 2015.
I want to post a list of stuff we are doing to help preserve our environment and to get some tips and tricks from all of you, if you’re willing to share.
* We recycle. It’s practically impossible not to since every house has its own recycling bin for plastic and a separate one for other garbage. We have larger recycling bins in the neighborhood for glass and paper as well.
* We try to keep the park, the beach, practically our earth clean by picking up litter.
* We use alcohol vinegar as a fabric softener. It doesn’t smell …:)
* We use reusable shopping bags from natural or recycled materials.
* We try to save paper so we receive all our bills thru emails.
* We dispose batteries at shopping centers where they have bins especially for batteries.
* We take showers not baths.
* We plant flowers and the next step will be a tree or more.
* I reuse any kind of cardboard packaging for my kids projects.
* There’s always use for glass containers as well. To store pasta, nuts, sugar, buttons…
* We use to buy eco-friendly, bio-degradable dish detergent and hand soap.
* We turn off lights that are not necessary and we use energy-saving light bulbs.
* We upgraded older toilets with water efficient models.
* We collect water from our roof to water our garden.
There are some ways to save water and energy and they all start with you!!!
