Earth day is just around the corner! What’s your Earth Day act of green?

What are your plans for Earth Day? Here at Ecotonix, we will celebrate Earth Day by continuing to spread the word about the Green Cycler. At our company we pledge to live and work by several pro-Earth mottos every single day, but we believe the most important pledge is to prevent food waste. More than just a slogan, our purpose is to: “Change the Earth by Recycling Food Scraps.”

Climate Change

A main focal point of Earth Day 2013 will be “The Face of Climate Change.” This topic is especially important because many people have not yet adopted the viewpoint that climate change is a real and powerful problem. It’s easy to ignore the signs of climate change and it’s common for individuals to dismiss climate change as nothing more than a contentious political debate. But adopting a “this may not be actually happening” attitude is not going to solve the earth’s environmental predicament.

Likewise, it’s can be difficult for individuals to relate to the seriousness of climate change on a daily basis, especially when dealing with hectic daily schedules and all of the complexities involved with personal and professional lives.

But in real life, climate change is something that is currently affecting people, animals, and some of the world’s most recognized and cherished locations. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, climate change is authentic, and it is happening NOW. The truth is that climate change is too big for any one person to tackle alone… but it’s something that can be stopped and/or solved with a collaborative effort.

The EPA stresses the following points on its website:

  • Climate change is happening.
  • Our Earth is warming.
  • Humans are largely responsible for recent climate change.
  • Climate change affects everyone.
  • Our lives are connected to the climate.
  • We can reduce the risks we will face from climate change.
  • We can make a difference.
  • You can take action.

Commemorating Earth Day and making a commitment to living “greener” is quite simple and does not require drastic measures. Merely acknowledging climate change and making a pledge to be conscious of the environment is simple!

Easy Ideas for Celebrating Earth Day 2013:

  •  Use re-usable grocery bags.
  • Turn off appliances (including lights) that are not in use.
  • Throw recyclable items into a recycling bin instead of a trash can.
  • Plant a tree in your yard.
  • Get your garden ready for planting.
  • Support a local business.
  • Talk about environmental issues with children.
  • Ride your bike to work.
  • Prevent as much food waste as possible.
  • Learn more about composting kitchen scraps.

All of the above are simple acts of Green that are gifts to the Earth, but they are just a few ideas. There are hundreds of other small ways that collectively we can all make a difference!
