6 Earth Month Activities You Can Easily Do

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.

Here are 6 Earth month activities you can easily do.

Use Energy Saving Light Bulbs

If you replace your standard light bulbs for energy efficient ones you will lower your carbon emission and also save money on your electricity bills.

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.
