In honour of Earth Day, we’ve put together a list of 10 simple ways you can celebrate Earth Day (tomorrow and every day) either at home or at work with your colleagues, friends, and family.

  1. Get outdoors! Earth Day falls on a Saturday this year, so there’s really no excuse to not spend some time appreciating a little fresh air with Mother Nature.

    The ‘Blue Marble”. One of the most widely known photographs of Earth, this image was taken by the crew of the final Apollo mission as the crew made its way to the Moon in 1972.

  2. Ditch the plastic water bottle.
  3. Start using a reusable coffee mug while on the go.
  4. Think twice about printing off that email.
  5. Challenge your team at work to go paper-free for a day, or at least print double-sided and in draft.
  6. Organize an office car pool.
  7. Organize a bike-to-work challenge.
  8. Plant a tree.
  9. Grab a couple of garbage bags, some gloves, and your kids or neighbours and perform a sidewalk clean-up on your street or around your block.
  10. Recycle, recycle, recycle; at home, at work and everywhere in between.
