Happy Earth Day to all!  Today is Earth Appreciation Day. We can take action and protect our planet in our own ways. For many people, planting a tree is an activity to do on Earth Day. As for me, I have made a simple but effective change in my lifestyle. You can do these simple things, which will make a great difference in caring for our Mother Earth.

  1. Making a commitment to daily recycling and minimizing your trash. You can sort out your paper, plastic, glass, and aluminum and take them to your nearest recycling center. You and your family can practice The 3 R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle when it comes to recycling.
  2. Using CFL light bulbs, or compact flourescent lamp will make your home green friendly. CFL light bulb uses 75% less energy so you can save money while being kind to Mother Nature since 1 CFL light equals 10 incandescent lamp.
  3. Donating your old clothes is a good way to help those less fortunate while reducing garbage. I donate my old clothes to Amnesty International and the needy in Laos.

Let’s take care of Mother Earth for the next generations to come.   We have nowhere else to go at the moment.
