12 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day

Everyday is Earth Day at White Lotus Home.Get involved.Here are ways to celebrate Earth Day. Don't restrict yourself to just April 22: learn about how you can help Save the Earth.

  1. Sleep on organic bedding.  Try a Kapok pillow, organic cotton sheets or an organic mattress or topper. Whitelotushome.com has Earth Day specials to make it affordable to achieve your first Organic Dream.
  2. Spread the word. Just talking about the environment with people who may not think about it that much is a good way to celebrate Earth Day. Talk to kids, co-workers, friends, neighbors and siblings about the environmental issues you care about most. Recycling?  Energy conservation?  Organic food choices?  You get the idea.
  3. Attend an Earth Day event. You’ll be introduced to new environmentally friendly products, eat locally grown food and chat with people who are making a difference. 
  4. Make a recycling plan. Know what you can and can’t recycle, and start separating out recyclable goods!
  5. Cook a special Earth Day meal. Invite friends and family over for menu that uses locally produced vegetables, fruit and other produce. Consider a totally organic meal.  If you still would like meat, look for locally produced, organic meat. 
  6. Fix a leaky faucets. Drip, drip, drip. You’ve put off repairing that leaky faucet project for some time now.  Only 1 percent of Earth’s water is drinkable, and our supply is endangered. Use Earth Day as motivation to stop wasting water and fix those leaks.  
  7. Carpool. Taking cars off the road is one of the best ways to combat climate change. Find people in your neighborhood to share the daily commute, or find a ride-sharing partner online.
  8. Skip the bottled water.  Bottled water consumes huge amounts of fossil fuels to produce and transport, and most of those recyclable water bottles end up in landfills. Get yourself a refillable and permanent water bottle to carry with you.  Save money, and the environment, too.  
  9. Organize a community cleanup. Get a group together to clean up your local park, schoolyard or beach.
  10. Write your elected representatives. Reaching out to elected officials to voice your concerns about local environmental issues.  Letter-writing is one of the best ways to have your voice heard.
  11. Go carless!   Walk, ride a bike or use public transportation.   Leave the car at home.  Plus, its great exercise!  
  12. Share Earth Day with children.  Help children use recycled products to make art projects. Talk with them about Green living and the importance of preserving Mother Earth.
