According to Earthday.org, around 1 billion people participate annually in coming together to promote awareness for the health of our environment. We can all learn from the conservation efforts from scientists and politicians to young climate change activists, and there are many with serious concerns about our changing environment.
But there are ways to make small changes that can help the planet. You can celebrate and protect the earth at the same time. Here are a few Earth Day ideas to help save the world any time of year.
Use Reusable Products
Reusable items are great all around, from reusable shopping bags and reusable coffee cups to reusable visitor passes with badge clips for the workforce. These items are equally essential for honoring the planet any time of the year. These badge holders and clips are reusable, but they are also easy to customize, writing with permanent or dry-erase markers, and easy to wear with an included, clothing-friendly, bulldog badge clip. If we reduce the number of new products we purchase, we can keep what we have and sanitize the older products to make them re-user friendly for all.
Volunteer to Clean Up
Volunteer lanyards are the essential statement accessory for a beach or park clean-up day. Planning an event can be a daunting task, and sometimes it’s hard to even know where to begin. A great way to do this is to take advantage of pre-printed lanyards; you can quickly tell the difference between bystanders to volunteers. You can also add a custom card and wallet to help know exactly where all your volunteers should be. There’s no better way to contribute to a cleaner and healthier community than by volunteering to tackle out-of-control waste. There is no doubt volunteer lanyards will assist in keeping the “clean-up” group looking distinguished and representing the community as a whole.
Attend Environmental Seminars
Apart from helping you organize your staff, this lanyard with two detachable soft end loops will benefit each guest. This lanyard is multi-use and functional and can hold keys, accessories, and double as a ID card holder, Event lanyards are less likely to get lost, which means less cleaning up. Aside from the ability environmental education has to connect us to the world around us, it also teaches us about natural and built environments. Let’s raise awareness of issues impacting the environment upon which we all depend and learn about actions we can take to improve and sustain it.
Though it may seem insignificant in the grand scheme of things, your closet and shopping habits can negatively impact our environment. New resources aren’t used to make more clothes that will eventually be repurposed, re-used, or in a landfill by buying thrift or gently used outfits. You can also contribute by eliminating unnecessary waste of old clothes by donating or selling them. In shopping smart for the planet, you may find some unique pieces of clothing for yourself, and by selling your old clothes, you can profit off of pieces that are no use to you anymore, all while being a good samaritan.
Earth Day serves as a conscious reminder of how fragile our ecosystem can be and how our actions can have positive or negative consequences on our world. We hope you feel inspired to get everyone together for community activities. Share these tips with friends, family, and colleagues.
