A third straight week of celebrating something?? It seems too good to be true! Well, if you’ve found this blog, we probably don’t have to tell you that tomorrow, April 22nd, is Earth Day. Since 1970, people around the world have been celebrating the occasion to take action to reduce our negative environmental impact and take steps to help out good ol’ Mother Nature. Here’s a little collections of things you can do this weekend and beyond to celebrate Earth Day in Maryland.
How to Celebrate Earth Day in Maryland
It can be as involved as gardening or working with your friends and neighbors to clean up your community, or as simple as recycling your paper cup from lunch. There are so many ways to celebrate Earth Day in Maryland, but here are just a few.
- Plant a tree! One single tree can absorb up to 48 pounds of carbon monoxide every year. A mature tree can hold up to a ton of the stuff. We probably don’t have to go on too long about the environmental benefits of planting a tree, so we shan’t.
- Plant other stuff! It doesn’t have to be a tree. Adding anything green to our planet is always helpful in improving our ecosystem. Check out some of these tips.
- Consider composting. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure, right? In this case, some of your kitchen and gardening waste can be recycled right back into your Earth Day endeavors. Composting is great for your soil — and in turn great for your garden!
- Take HGTV’s Earth Day Challenge. This year, HGTV put together a great list of daily habits you can adopt to reduce your environmental impact this Friday and every day. Click right here to see how your “green” practices stack up to their challenge!
- Attend an event. For more Maryland-specific stuff, we found this list of awesome Earth Day events and activities to attend throughout the whole DMV region. Whether you live in Washington DC, Maryland, or Virginia, there’s surely something on the list that you can attend. Click here for that list.
We hope you’re able to celebrate Earth Day this weekend and we hope you have fun doing it! Let us know on social media how you’re celebrating and maybe we’ll be able to put together a fun spotlight blog to show how Evergreen Gene’s fantastic customers are going green this year.
