Happy Earth Day! Earth Day is a reminder of the importance of environmental conservation and sustainability, encouraging everyone to come together and take action for a healthier planet and brighter future.

Contributing to a healthier planet is easy. The EPA offers the following tips to make every day Earth Day:

Lower Your Carbon Footprint

  • Bike or walk
  • Carpool or take public transportation
  • Choose an energy-efficient vehicle
  • Make fewer trips by grouping your errands
  • Drive smart: go easy on the breaks and gas, use cruise control, and keep your car well maintained

Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle

  • Reuse or repurpose containers, clothing, and cloth grocery bags
  • Give clothes a second life by donating or buying used
  • Know what items your local recycling programs collects, and what items are recyclable

Be H2O Smart

  • Repair leaky faucets and replace old equipment like toilets and dishwashers when possible
  • Turn off the water to brush teeth and shave
  • Run full loads of laundry and dishes
  • Collect rainwater to use in your garden

Feed People, not Landfills

  • Check your refrigerator, pantry, and freezer before shopping to avoid buying foods you don't need
  • Plan your meals for the week — before heading to the store
  • Properly store fruits and vegetables so they last longer
  • Utilize your freezer and leftovers
