Today is Earth Day, the annual celebration of awareness for our planet. Although Earth Day comes once per year, there are several activities that you can do on any day. Better Homes and Gardens has several ideas.
- Plant a tree – As many people know, trees give off shade, food, shelter for wildlife and provide oxygen to help us breathe
- Make a terrarium – A small jar filled with rocks, soil and anything you wish to add is a great way to teach children about the planet’s importance
- Donate unused items – Besides getting rid of clutter around your house, donating to Goodwill and The Salvation Army is a great way to share items you no longer need
- Recycle – You can recycle within your own home by separating your bottles, cans, paper products and glass
The Powell Group invites you to partake in these activities and, we encourage you to think of other things you can do around your home to help our planet prosper. Our team members are always here to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
