22 things you can do to save the world


 
Happy Earth Day! In honor of Mama Nature, we’ve got 22 things you can do right this second, anywhere in the world, to go green and do your part to make the world a better, healthier and happier place. Whatcha waitin’ for?

 

At school

1. Walk or bike to school

2. Choose reusable water bottles instead of plastic one-use bottles

3. Use a lunch bag rather than a disposable paper or plastic bag

 

At home

4. Speed up your showers and nix those bubble baths

5. Turn the water off while you brush your teeth

6. Decide what you want to grab before you open the fridge instead of staring at the contents for a minute…and letting the cold air whoosh out

7. Unplug all electronics when you’re not using them

8. Turn off the tube while you’re doing your homework

9. Think before you reach for paper towels. Wouldn’t a cloth towel work just a well?

10. Wear your jeans a couple of times before tossing them in the wash

11. Turn off the fan or turn up the A.C. and use a lightweight blanket instead of a heavy comforter at night

 

Outside

12. Plant a garden

13. Instead of running a mile or two on a treadmill, hop on your bike and cruise around your neighborhood

14. Grab a few friends and pick up trash in a public space

 

With your buds

15. Send e-vites instead of paper invitations when you throw a party

16. Bring reusable bags on shopping trips

17. Shop at a vintage or thrift store

18. Up-cycle your worn-out T-shirts and other items into fun DIY jewelry, decorations, pillows or blankets. Check out GL Crafts for ideas and how-tos

19. Head to the library or a used bookstore instead of a big-box bookseller

 

Anywhere

20. Take the time to sort out recyclable goods from trash

21. Switch lights off when you leave a room

22. Visit teensforplanetearth.org and begin a conservation or service-learning project.
