Earth Day is Every Day in Fawnskin

Happy Earth Day! How about checking out an energy usage meter (see video)?

Here in Fawnskin most of us are earth oriented due to the fact that we live adjacent to the forest–but not everyone makes earth day every day.

Ten simple steps to make every day Earth Day for those visitors and residents that need some motivational tips:

1. Carry a trash bag when you travel and take home your waste.
2. Pick up any litter you see around you on walks and in your neighborhood.
3. Clean up after your pet on walks and trips.
4. Take public transportation, commute with a coworker, or ride a bike once a week.
5. Recycle your waste so you reduce trash buildup.
6. Reduce your use of throw away products.
7. Use old fashioned and less toxic cleaning solutions.
8. Plant native plant species in your garden.
9. Use electronic technology options to cut down or eliminate paper billing statements.
10. Take action to reduce junk mail.
