Let’s All Do Our Part to Save the Earth

Tomorrow is Earth Day, a day created 46 years ago for us to focus on what we can do to help preserve the earth. According to the Earth Day Network, this year the focus of Earth Day is the urgent need to plant new trees and forests worldwide.

This is a great opportunity to gather your employees together to do something fun as well as positive for the environment. And you’ll be surprised at what a morale booster it can be as well.

What are some things you can do as a company for Earth Day?

  1. Stop and think. Do you really need to print out a copy of that email or is a digital copy enough?
  2. If you do need to print something out, how about printing it back-to-back and save on the amount of paper you’re using?
  3. Plan a day of tree planting, especially in light of this year’s focus.
  4. If your office doesn’t already recycle, start a recycling program.
  5. Create a “Go Green” committee to see what else your company can do year-round to help the environment.

Let’s all do our part to help protect the planet. For every company and every individual what that is will be different. But no effort is too small. Even something as simple as using a reusable lunch bag and filling up your water bottle instead of buying a new bottle can make a difference.

Four Ideas for Earth Day

Can you believe that next week is already Earth Day? This is the 45th anniversary of Earth Day which is celebrated each year on April 22.  “Bringing the poverty, development, climate and sustainability communities together to build a broader and more inclusive global movement is the theme of this year’s Earth Day,” according to the Earth Day Network.

This is a great opportunity to gather your employees together to do something fun as well as positive for the environment. And you’ll be surprised at what a morale booster it can be as well.

Some things the Network suggests as ways you and your company/organization can get involved in Earth Day include:

  1. Host a talk for coworkers and community members.
  2. Plan a day of tree planting.
  3. Pick up trash at a local park or beach.
  4. Invite an expert to educate your group or larger community about the dangers of climate change, the importance of sustainability, how to reduce your carbon footprint or on any other pressing environmental issues.

Let’s all do our part to help protect the planet. For every company and every individual what that is will be different. But no effort is too small. Even something as simple as bringing your own shopping bags to the store or printing business documents double-sided can make a difference.
