Nearly 48 years ago, on April 22, 1970, millions of protesters took to the streets to protest a lack of regard for our environment. Since then, Earth Day has become a global event involving more than 1 billion people.
Use these three easy tips to do your part this Earth Day:
• Invest in a reusable coffee cup and shopping bags. Reusable items will help reduce the use of plastic bags, cups and lids.
• Use Earth-friendly products. Be cautious of brands you’re purchasing and avoid chemical-laden products.
• Carpool. Fewer vehicles on the road result in less carbon and pollution.
