What do you have planned for today? Today is Earth Day but even if you are reading this on another day think about what you can do to make this world a better place. Here are four ideas:
Learn about pesticides and herbicides and make wise choices. I have found that many people don’t realize that there are options – especially related to lawn care. Here is more information including what to do instead.
Start composting. Why throw away items that could be composted and then buy fertilizers and compost? Create your own fertilizers and soil amendments.
Grow something! Everyone should be able to grow something edible no matter where they live. Don’t have a yard? Grow something in a pot. Grow on your windowsill, patio, or deck.
Choose to be a nicer person. Watch not just what you say but how you say it. Whether communicating by email, in person, on the phone, or on social media think about how what you say comes across to others. When communication is not face to face body language is not there. This may sound like a strange suggestion for Earth Day but if everyone chose to be nicer this world would be a more pleasant place for all.
