Living The Green Life - Celebrate Earth Day

Earth Day is a great time to think about how you and your family can do more to live the green life. In this episode, Heather outlines a few things you can do this Earth Day to make an impact as a family.

Hi, I'm Heather with SaveOnEnergy, here with some more tips on Living the Green Life. Earth Day is a great occasion to stay at home and celebrate the planet with your family.  After all, home is where we spend most of our time and energy, so it's the best place to focus on living the green life. Here are three ways you can have your own Earth Day celebration!

1. Plant something. Whether you add flowers to your garden or go all out and plant a tree, you'll be adding curb appeal but also removing carbon dioxide from the air. Want to go one step further? Plant a vegetable garden so you have better control over your food supply.

2. Declutter your closets and shelves. Figure out what you don't use or need and donate it to a good cause. Better yet, have a swap party. Invite your friends and ask them to bring items to trade. Have a theme, such as kids' toys, cookbooks or garden equipment, and make it a potluck for the ultimate swap.

3. Make a change as a family. Have a meeting and figure out what you - as a family - can do to be greener. Can you give up your weekly pizza delivery and make your own pies instead? How about giving up paper towels to reduce trash, or taking timed showers to save water? Be realistic about your goal, but also try to stretch yourself so you're really making a difference.

As you can see, it's not too hard to live the green life this Earth Day. We'll be back soon with more tips!
