Earth Day is April 22: How to Help the Environment

Helping the environment by recycling is a popular method, but there are many other ways to make a difference in the future of the earth.

You can help by turning down the heat, turning off the lights when you leave a room, cutting down your commute and using alternative forms of transportation. Recycling is a great first step because it is easy, but you can go further to cut down on your carbon footprint.

One of the best things you can do to make the earth cleaner, greener and healthier is to buy locally grown produce. This cuts down on your fossil fuel consumption. Food that is grown in other countries takes a tremendous amount of energy to get over to the U.S. Buying food grown by local farmers is usually a better option than relying on food from overseas.

When we work together, we can create a better tomorrow!
