How We're Celebrating Earth Day This Year

April 13, 2021 3 min read

Every year on April 22, we celebrate the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. This movement, while not the earliest sign of environmentalism, sparked change in the hearts of many. We continue to celebrate Earth Day each year to spread awareness and to create change. Here are a few ways you as an individual can make a difference today.

Earth Day 2021

Post About It

Social media is a powerful tool these days. Use it. Take advantage of the tool that it is. Put a simple informational post on your story and get your followers thinking about it. This is the easiest way to spread awareness!

Donate To A Charity

Research charities that you believe in and support them.

Watch Informational Films

One of the most important things you can do is to educate yourself. No matter the topic, take the time to learn. A great way to do this is by watching films and documentaries. Netflix is home to many options to watch. Just make sure to do your research, check facts, and sit through them. A lot of them can be hard to watch, but it's important to be aware of things going on around you.

Make Sustainable Swaps

Single use items have got to go. Not only are they extremely harmful to the environment, but we just don't need them anymore. Here are a few easy and affordable sustainable swaps you can make right now!

Plant A Tree Or Garden

Gather friends or family and make a day out of it!

Start Shopping From Sustainable Brands

This can be as simple as shopping locally, or you can do your research and find brands with similar values as your own. We know that this can mean more expensive products, so just do your best.

Learn How To Recycle Properly

A lot of us aren't recycling the right way, and some not at all. Research your cities recycling policies and start doing it the right way.

Clean Up An Area In Your Hometown

Pick up trash at the local park, or take it a step further and gather people together to clean up a larger area. Not only will this make your town look cleaner and nicer, but it and you will be able to breathe better.

Eat Less Meat and Dairy

Do you know the environmental effects the meat and dairy industry have on our planet? It's one of the most harmful industries on earth, for us and for animals. Choose one day a month or a week and challenge yourself to eat less meat and dairy. If you want to take it a step further, work towards being vegan.

Don't Be Too Hard On Yourself

While working towards change in your own life makes a huge difference, it's important to remember that no one is perfect, and we don't have to be. It's what makes us human.

Speak Up

Nothing is more important than speaking up for what you believe in, whatever that is. Now is the time to speak up.
