Earth Day is This Saturday April 22nd!
Earth day reminds us that this is the only planet we have, and so we need to take good care of it. We were thinking about the things we can do to help our beautiful planet. Here is what we came up with.
Recycling is a great way to help the earth. It can save energy, water, and natural resources.
Recycling is easy! Water bottles, cans, glass jars are things that we all can recycle instead of throwing in the garbage. You can also recycle paper products, like old school papers, junk mail, old magazines, and cardboard boxes. These things are sorted and sold to different factories to be cleaned and made into new products!
Reduce the amount of things that need to be recycled. Why use plastic water bottles that you use once, then throw away? You can buy a water bottle that you can re-fill. That way you can use it over and over. You can buy water bottles that are stainless steel, glass or plastic.
Re-usable Lunch Box
Pack your lunch in a lunch box instead of using plastic or paper bags that you have to throw away each time. Inside the lunch box you can put your food in reusable containers instead of throw away plastic bags.
Our air gets polluted and dirty. Plants use the energy of the sun to make oxygen and clean up the air. You could plant flowers, vegetables, fruit bushes, or even a tree. Trees can live a REALLY long time. Some trees are hundreds of years old, so they would clean up the air and make oxygen all that time!
Clean it up!
You and your family could go on a walk and pick up any litter that you see. Then you could recycle it!
Use Less Water
If we use less water it helps keep our earth healthy. It takes a lot of energy to treat the water that we use in our houses. If we all use less, there will be more for everyone else. An easy way to use less water is to turn the water off when you are brushing your teeth. Turn it back on when you’re done to rinse your toothbrush and get a drink. Another way to use less water is to take a shorter shower. Your parents will also be happy because they’ll be saving money on the water bill!
Get outside and enjoy our beautiful Earth!
