5 Easy Ways CT Homeowners Can Honor Earth Day EverydaySince 1970, Earth Day has been observed on April 22 each year, serving as a flagship reminder to Earth’s citizens of the importance of environmental consciousness and conservation. With events and celebrations now extending the whole month long all across the globe, millions of people will celebrate our planet and the wonders nature has to offer. While Earth Day comes just once a year, there are plenty of ways Connecticut homeowners can celebrate the spirit of Earth Day all year round. One of the best days to do so it to be conscious of your home and family’s environmental impact.

Here are a 5 simple ways to commemorate Earth Day everyday:

  • Unplug- While it seems to be nearly impossible to completely cut out electronics for our everyday lives, there are many ways that CT homeowners can reduce their their energy consumption. According to experts, simply unplugging chargers, electronics and chargers when they are not in use can not only cut down electricity usage but also costs.
  • Water Conservation- Water conservation has caught the attention of millions of American’s recently as many parts of the nation have fallen into severe droughts. While the East Coast may have seen heavy precipitation this year, there is still a serious need for conservation as 99 percent of Earth’s water is unusable by humans and many other living things. Reducing shower times, washing dishes by had, and environmentally conscious landscaping are just a few ways CT homeowners can help reduce their water consumption, which in turn can greatly reduce the strain on one of Earth’s more vital resources.
  • Reuse and Recycle- Recycling is probably on of the most widely popular ways many households can curb their environmental impact, but if you are looking to go the extra mile invest in reusable water bottles, to-go containers, reusable shopping bags and other commonly disposable items. Doing so will reduce your household’s waste generation.
  • E-Waste: Being conscious about the disposal of your electronics and batteries is an important because many of these items contain toxins and chemicals that are harmful to the environment. Nearly every electronics store or provider offers some type of collection and disposal of these items now making it easier than ever to make sure they are properly disposed of.
  • Plant a small garden- You don’t have to have a large yard or fancy “urban far” to be able to grow many of the food items you need, especially herbs and lettuces. Many varietals of herbs and lettuce can thrive in small planters which make them perfect for nearly any home.
