Earth Day is coming up on April 22nd, and it's the perfect time to celebrate our home planet and remind everyone that we must protect it. It doesn't matter if you're an environmental volunteer, a climate warrior, or just a simple citizen that cares about the environment. You've come to the right place if you're looking for simple yet meaningful ways to celebrate Earth Day.
Here are some activities that you, your family, and your friends can do together to celebrate the environmental occasion:
Clean Your Neighborhood
Neighborhood cleanups are one of the best ways to reconnect with nature. In fact, you can take this initiative up a notch and even clean your local parks. While cleanups can take you hours to accomplish, it makes you realize one crucial thing: plastic and garbage are everywhere. If you want to raise awareness about the severity of garbage pollution and plastic use, then a neighborhood cleanup is an excellent activity for you.
Donate to Charity
Donating to charities is perfect for those that don't have the time to engage in Earth Day activities. Don't feel bad about yourself. There are charities around your area and the world that will ensure that your money is put to good use. Take a look at some of their advocacies and determine if it fits yours. From the conservation of protected areas to species preservation, you'll have no shortage of organizations to donate your money to.
Start Your Own Garden
If you're looking for the perfect time to indulge yourself in gardening, then this is it. We're not just talking about aesthetically-pleasing gardens. You should try creating responsible gardens that use wildflowers and native plants in your area. You're attracting good pollinators and improving your pest control by doing this.
You should also try organic fertilizers derived from your food scraps instead of buying damage-heave, artificial ones. Furthermore, if you have AlgenAir's aerium, you can use its algae as a fertilizer. Aside from purifying the air around you, the aerium's algae has increased water retention and nutrients. Consequently, you can expect a boost in your gardening when you use its algae.
Reuse and Recycle Your Household Products
You may not realize it, but there are several household items that you can actually recycle. Do you have old shampoo bottles that you can use as a flower vase? In fact, you can even recycle your aerium algae-based air filter. Being creative can help you have an air filter removing carbon dioxide and a fertilizer in one product.
Plant a Tree
Lastly, you can plant a tree with your friends to celebrate Earth Day. Your tree is a sustainable investment for your future as it grows. It will be a natural air filter removing carbon dioxide and making your neighborhood cooler in the long run. If you don't know yet, we’ve actually partnered with One Tree Planted as part of our advocacy for a greener Earth.
