8 Steps You Can Take This Earth Day to Help Mother Nature

Are looking for things to do for Earth Day? Here are a few actions you can take and events you can attend to support the Earth.

1. Take a walk in your neighborhood and pick up trash. 

All it takes is a couple of pairs of gloves and a trash bag to get involved. Look out for sharp and dangerous objects and stay safe!

2. Pick up pet waste! Timely removal keeps waste from washing into waterways and spreading bacteria and parasites.

3. Switch to online billing and go paperless for your household budget.

Imagine how many bills pile up on your desk each year. Switching to e-bills cannot only make your life more efficient but save trees in the process.

4. Make a personal plastic audit.

Check items around your house to fully understand how prevalent plastic is in your life and investigate ways to make simple swaps.

5. Switch out single-use plastic bags for reusable shopping totes.

It is estimated that every year, 300 million plastic bags are put in the Atlantic Ocean. If we all make the change, we can help prevent this pollution.

6. Replace inefficient incandescent light bulbs with efficient CFLs or LEDS. 

By switching to efficient light bulbs, you can reduce your carbon footprint by 450 pounds a year!

7. Contribute to the Chesapeake Bay Trust to help make a powerful investment in the Chesapeake region.

By donating to the Chesapeake Bay Trust, you are contributing to the funding of organizations that help make a powerful environmental impact on the Chesapeake region each year.
