Earth Day is April 22nd. As you know we love any and all holidays. This is a great one to celebrate with your entire family. Here are my top 5 ways to celebrate Earth Day with your family this year.
5 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day with Your Family
Plant a Tree or Flowers
If you don't have a garden at home you can make one. We recently transformed an old sandbox into a garden for B.
Or look in your town to see it they have a community garden. Our town has a Community Garden where you can lease a plot for the year. You can learn how to garden from other local gardeners and be part of a community of other gardeners. Our community garden has everyone donate a percentage of their harvest to a local food bank, which is a win win.
Find a Community Earth Day Event
Simply Google Earth Day celebration and your town. We have a couple of events in our town. Including one at the community garden. It is a family friendly event will include crafts, games, face painting, music, a lady bug release. They even have students from local schools who will be participating in contests that bring awareness to Environmental Issues.
Pick up Trash at a Local Park
Grab some gloves and a garbage bag and help mother earth by picking up thrash that others may have left behind. Since we live in South Florida beach clean ups are popular. You could do it with your family or look for an organization that gets a large group of people together.
Switch to Reusable Grocery Bags
This is one of my personal goals for Earth Day. I have a great collection of reusable bags from all over town and yet I always forget to put them in my car. I am going to make this happen and you can too. Simply store the bags in your car that way you are already half way there. Once you get to the store you don't have to worry that you forgot the bags since they are already in your car.
Tune up your Car
This is a great time to tune up your car. Check to see if you are due for an oil change. Mobil 1™ synthetic oil protects more than just your engine. It also reduces oil consumption which means less waste oil. Less waste is the perfect way to be more earth-conscious. Whether you like to change your own oil or you prefer to trust an expert to do it for you, Walmart and Walmart's Auto Care Center have you covered.
