1. Participate in a "Keep (your county) Beautiful" event!
In college, I really enjoyed participating in the Keep Bulloch Beautiful events every year. I planted flowers, picked up trash along the roads, etc. There is probably something similar in your area. (If you Google it, you'll get a lot of results.)
2. Plant a tree!
Plant a tree, veggies, flowers - anything to help make the Earth a prettier and greener place! Plus, plants create oxygen which is always a good thing - pretty and practical!
3. Make a craft from recycled products!
That's right - I'm telling you to go craft crazy. You know Pinterest is full of great ideas!
4. Eat organic, locally grown veggies!
This tip actually benefits your body more than the Earth, but it's still a good one.
5. Wear green and spread the word!
I'm assuming green is the official color of Earth Day - so wear it like it's St. Patrick's Day and go just as crazy...planting trees, of course!
6. Celebrate Earth Day everyday!
Teaching students about colonization is really interesting because you see how much history has happened due to the Earth's resources - countries want land, gold, oil, etc. It would be a sad day if we ever ran out of any of these things, so take care of Mother Earth for yourself and for future generations.
