Earth Day is everyday!

I celebrate Earth Day every day through small acts. The little things that I do at home are carpooling, turning off the lights when not in use and separating my trash. I water my plants with rainwater when possible.  This means that when it rains I put out containers to capture it. I think about Mother Earth every day and I make small changes to help protect her. My purpose is to make this place better for my children and their children. I am not perfect, so sometimes I do use plastic and Styrofoam. When this happens I make sure that these items go directly into a trash to avoid them from ending up in the ocean.

Not littering is one of the most important things you can do to help the Earth. Please do not litter because your trash may end up in our Ocean with our animals. Turning off the lights, separating your trash and shorter showers are super important to being kind to our Earth, however not littering is one I highly recommend as part of your daily routine.

If you want to learn how to be kind to our Earth through a fun educational experience then go to The Ecology Center located on 32701 Alipaz St. San Juan Capistrano, 92675.  It is an educational center that is focused on hands on fun activities that teach practical environmental solutions. I have personally visited this happy place.
