Earth Day

Mark your calendars – April 22 is Earth Day. This is a time to celebrate our planet and learn about how we can preserve our natural resources.

Here are a few ways you can contribute:

  • Recycle your old CFL bulbs. Visit regeneration.ca to find a collection facility near you.
  • While you’re at it, purchase new and energy efficient LED bulbs.
  • Turn off your electronics and read, play board games or spend some time outside.
  • When you’re doing your spring cleaning, donate any unwanted items instead of throwing them away.
  • Take advantage of warm days and hang your clothes outside to dry.
  • Invest in reusable grocery bags and water bottles.
  • Join a community clean-up event. Check with your city, town, or municipality to see if there’s a clean-up happening near you. If there isn’t, gather your friends and family and start your own!
