While Earth Day is officially observed on April 22, you can make every day Earth Day by taking small actions each day. There are lots of ways that you can help to make this Earth a better place for our’s and future generations, which can seem overwhelming. Pick one action at a time. When you master one, then add another. For example, you can start by simply carrying a trash bag and gloves with you on a walk and picking up trash as you go. The Earth and her creatures will thank you! Once you master that, then look for ways to conserve water in the home, or ways to save energy, or plant a tree. It’s not important what you pick to do. It’s important that you pick something, because every action, no matter how small, will make a difference.
