Tomorrow, April 22, is Earth Day, so it’s time to show the Earth some love. Here are some simple things you can do to help our planet:

Ways to Save Water:

  • Don’t let your automatic ice maker run constantly.
  • Install low-flow devices.
  • Water plants in the morning or evening when the least amount of evaporation is likely to occur.
  • Use your garbage disposal less. Purchase a sink strainer instead to trap food and other debris, or consider composting.
  • Wash full loads to conserve both water and energy.
  • Trust in the power of your dishwasher and stop pre-rinsing.
  • Install a spray nozzle to stop water from continuously running.
  • Check for and fix leaks.

Ways to be Sustainable:

  • Plant a tree.
  • Eat less meat.
  • Stop buying disposable plastic items.
  • Make your own garden or buy more locally-grown produce.
  • Go paperless.
  • Invest in solar powered gadgets.
  • Try carpooling, walking, or biking to work.
