Happy Earth Day!

It’s Earth Day today, but every day is a good one to think about how we can save our planet. Here are five small ways we can all help…

  1. Never throw away water. If you or your pets need fresh water, use the water in the glass or bowl and water your plants with it.
  2. Hold on that flush. “Poo do, pee don’t” is a pretty self-explanatory rhyme, right? If you have pets who drink out of the toilet, keep the lid down. But you know that! Hopefully.
  3. Take re-usable bags to shop so you avoid plastic or paper bags. Use bags that aren’t re-usable for garbage can liners.
  4. Clean up after your dog. (This one is personal.)
  5. Grow things. Plants of any kind add beauty, you can learn to grow medicinal or edibles, like herbs, and you can get closer to nature. 

If you’d like to do a little more, consider supporting Biodiversity for a Livable Climate, The BOA Foundation, and Yorenkata Sorentsi.

And don’t forget to pet a cat or a dog every day! It’ll cheer you up.
