Celebrate earth month this April with new activities you can easily achieve now and all year round. Protecting the earth might sound like a huge task, but if each of us takes little steps to improve the world around us this earth month, we can make a huge impact.
6 Earth month activities you can easily do.
Use Energy Saving Light Bulbs
If we each replaced one bulb in our home with an energy-saving light bulb, we’d save enough energy to power 3 million homes for a year.
Make Reusable Shopping Bags Easily Accessible
Put reusable shopping bags in the boot of your car, your bag, or by your front door. Making them more accessible will have a significant impact on plastic waste reduction.
Less Screen Time, More Green Time
Studies suggest that the more time you spend in front of a screen, the less you feel connected to the environment. Swap time in front of your TV for an hour-long walk or time in the garden.
Plant A Vegetable
Planting a whole vegetable garden might be too much to do in a day. But one vegetable? Easy! Consider planting a tomato, potato, or carrot, or using one seed packet to create a very manageable ‘garden’ of one or a few plants.
Join a Cleanup Campaign
Join your local community and help remove litter from your doorstep, or travel further afield and help clean the UK beaches. Surfers against sewerage offer some great information on how you can get involved. Including tips on how to do your own mini beach clean!
Offset your Carbon with Tree Planting Schemes
You can help make a difference to the climate by growing your own forest to offset your carbon footprint. We don’t recommend planting a forest in your own garden; your neighbours might not be too pleased! Instead, look for companies that plant the correct species of trees in the right area. We offset our carbon through Ecologi it’s easy to set up and you can plant trees when it’s suitable for you.
Small Things Make A Big Difference
The small things we do each day help us to take steps towards more eco-friendly living. Happy Earth Month everyone, we hope these easy earth month activities inspire you for the rest of the year and beyond.
We hope we inspired you for activities you can do not just for earth month but for the whole year through. Do you need more ideas for how you can help the environment? You might enjoy our article on how to rewild your garden with nature in mind.
