Earth Day 2021

Home Projects for Earth Day

  • Switch to LED light bulbs. This one change will save both money and energy.
  • Fix leaky faucets in your home.
  • Conduct a full-home energy assessment to check for air leaks and other ways you might be able to save energy and money.
  • Start composting to use kitchen scraps and add nutrients to the soil.
  • Plant an organic garden and perennial flower beds.
  • If local ordinances allow it, use a rain barrel to collect water for your lawn and garden.
  • Cut back on driving. Try walking, biking, or taking public transportation more often. Start a carpool with co-workers, friends, and neighbors.
  • Start using earth-friendly cleaning solutions in place of commercial products.
  • Shop local. You're not only supporting your local community, but also saving transportation energy.
  • Take reusable bags to the store - keep them in your car so they're always handy. (We'll be glad to give you one of our infamous green bags.)
  • Organize a regular litter pick up with your family and friends. Recycle "trash" items when possible.
