Today is Earth Day – a day held to celebrate Mother Nature and to reflect how people around the world can help the environment. The theme for 2015 is “It’s our turn to lead”, which urges global leaders and citizens to help the earth. Play your part by doing these five things to help our planet.
Plant a tree
Trees produce oxygen and provide shelter for birds, so planting one is a great way of giving back.
Clean up litter
Whether you pick up litter outside the office or around your neighbourhood, you will have a cleaner environment and contribute to making the environment better.
Replace your wheels with your legs
Give your car a break and offset your carbon footprint – take a walk!
Learn about your environment, climate change and how you can make a difference. Often, you will find that it doesn’t take much to make a difference.
Organic produce can be expensive, so if you can’t afford it, plant your own garden. You can start small with tomatoes or a peach tree.
