Earth Day is coming up on April 22nd! Now is the time to start planning; to start thinking about what you will do this year!
Earth Day Opportunities for Impact
Earth Day is a great opportunity to organize a community-oriented event that will engage people and make a difference. You can do something alone or with a few friends or you can think bigger and organize a city-wide activity.
Raise money to donate reusable grocery bags. Organize a community event to clean up litter at a park or beach. Plant trees. Spread mulch and plant flowers.
There are endless opportunities for Earth Day activities!
The goal of these events is to help people to take ownership of the world around them. You’re not asking them to join a political movement or to handcuff themselves to trees in the forest. You’re inviting them to dream bigger about what your home, neighborhood, community, or city can look like and feel like.
Organize a Green Litter Movement
Not all litter is bad.
Let’s quickly clarify that statement.
Consider buying wildflower seeds like these and hand them out to your neighbors and friends. Encourage them to toss them; to throw them along ditches, roadways, and boulevards. To hand them out to others to do the same. Before long, our neighborhoods will be glittered with color and beauty.
Make this coming Earth Day one where a greener, healthier, more beautiful type of litter becomes part of our communities!
Let April 22nd be Day 1
The goal of something like Earth Day is not for one day of care and concern followed by 364 days of neglect. Instead, think of ways to make April 22nd the first day of some new initiatives in your life, your home, or your community.
Make this coming Earth Day the start of a whole new effort to make smarter, more eco-friendly decisions. Whether it’s the day you officially stop using plastic grocery bags or its the day you start your “Plant One Tree a Month” initiative, April 22nd can be the start of a whole new way of life!
At Filtrol, we are excited to partner with people and organizations who are serious about protecting our environment and stopping the onslaught of plastic pollution all around us.
