Earth Day is April 22. Here are 13 things students and families can do to help the environment. A side benefit is that they will also help save money.

Reduce

  • Turn off lights after leaving the room to save energy
  • Spend less time on your phone and have a conversation
    • Save phone battery
  • Don’t buy a new cell phone every year or two years  
  • Plan your errands ahead of time to conserve gas
  • Only buy the amount of food you will eat
  • Buy food from the farmers market when you can (buy local)

Reuse

  • Take your own insulated mug to Dutch Bros or Starbucks (you usually get a discount on your drink).  
  • Buy reusable bags instead of getting plastic bags.
  • Students who bring home lunch can use tupperware containers to reduce plastic
  • If you don’t have reusable bags and get plastic bags. You can use plastic grocery bags for trash can liners instead of buying trash bags.

Recycle  

  • Give away books, DVD’s, CD’s, and magazines to a used book store or Goodwill
  • Shop at thrift stores or buy things though sites like Craigslist
  • Put paper and cans in the recycling bin
