Earth Day 2010

On the official Earth Day website, these were some of the suggestions people sent for helping take care of our planet:

  • I will not litter and I will help the environment.
  • I want to use recycled papers rather than new ones so I can save a tree from being cut.
  • I pledge to recycle and be as energy-efficient as possible.
  • We recycle, use canvas shopping bags and garden organically.
  • I will take shorter showers and use a water-saving shower head.
  • I will walk, ride my bike, and take public transportation instead of driving.
  • I will use a reusable water bottle and bring a mug to the coffee shop.
  • I’ll be sending this message to all my students and save more energy.
  • I will bring my own bags to the grocery store.
  • I will pay my bills online instead of receiving bills in the mail.
  • Drying clothes on a rack instead of in the drying machine.
  • I’m becoming a Vegetarian today!
  • My four-year-old sister and I are growing beans to add green to our Earth.
  • I will call the local utility company and check if they offer a green energy program to power homes with wind and solar.
