5 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day!

Planting trees or cleaning beaches are only some of the ways you can celebrate Earth Day. Here are other ways to help out the planet and have fun while doing it!

Earth Day has been around for over 50 years. You might remember it as a day when you would do crafts in elementary school. Perhaps, you never celebrated it at all. However, there are many ways to be a part of this international movement. Here are 5 ways to celebrate Earth Day:

Upcycle

There are many ways to take your old clothes and spice them up! A great way to do this is through upcycling. You could take some old jeans and paint cool designs on them as well as cut them up and create a new style.

Repurpose Some “Trash”

Instead of throwing away things that might be trash, find a new way to bring them to life! Old containers, bottles, and candles can be used in multiple ways around the house and save you some money too.

Visit a Thrift Store

Thrift stores are a great way to save money and help the Earth. Instead of throwing away old clothes, donating them to a thrift store will extend their lifetime. If you are feeling creative you can “Thrift and Flip” to give your clothes a unique style.

Spend Some Time Outside

We don’t really spend much time thinking about the Earth in our day-to-day lives. Take Earth Day as a reminder to spend some time outside. Whether it is going for a walk or visiting a local park, spend some time in nature.

Use The Hashtag #InvestInOurPlanet

A great way to celebrate Earth Day is by showing your support on social media. The Earth Day organization is using the hashtag #InvestInOurPlanet to share different ways we can help make our planet better.
