With Coachella in full swing, all anyone is talking about is the start of summer and being outside. April showers bring May flowers, but April also brings Earth Day! This is the one day out of the year that reminds us to be thankful for this great big planet that allows us to live every day. Keep reading for a few pointers on how to celebrate Earth Day in style!
Plant Something or Buy a Plant
Earth has so many beautiful things to offer and plants are just one of them! Visit your local botany club or keep an eye out for plant sales to celebrate with a cute plant you can call your own. Whether it’s a succulent or a sunflower, adopting a plant can be a fun way to teach us to appreciate the world around us! Five minutes into a botany club’s plant sale and I was in love. I found the cutest little succulents and we’ve been together ever since. These little plants brighten up the room and remind me to consciously make the world a better place every day!
Do Something to Make the World Cleaner
Reduce, reuse, recycle! We’ve all heard this saying a million times, but have any of us ever really tried it? I wonder the difference it would make if we all were eco-friendly for one day. Earth day is one of those days that we can start to look at our choices and habits to determine if we are doing the most we can to be eco-friendly. We decide if we are doing our best to reduce our carbon footprint, and if we want to try something new, such as recycling, to make the world a better place!
Wear Earth Day Colors & Have a Photoshoot
Another fun way to celebrate earth day is to wear Earth’s two favorite colors: green and blue! Creating an Earth Day outfit can be a fun way for you to show your support for an eco-friendly environment! Taking pictures and spreading the word about keeping the environment safe can be a fun way to get to know others as well! Snap an instagram pic and hashtag it #EarthDay and tell the world why you celebrate it. You never know who you may connect with!
Spend Some Quality Time in Nature
Staying off your phones and enjoying nature in some way or form is partially what Earth Day is all about. Having a picnic outside, reading in a hammock, playing soccer with your friends, or sunbathing by the pool can be fun ways to enjoy nature. Picking wildflowers and visiting wildlife in a zoo or aquarium can also be ways to celebrate the life we sometimes take for granted. There are an endless amount of ways to enjoy the outdoors- all it takes is the simple phrase “Let’s go outside!”
Put an Act of Kindness Out Into the World
With summer approaching, this is the time of the year where a lot of us yearn for change. We want summer and everything that comes along with it. The unrest to change your normal routine settles in. Wanderlust is on our minds, and the stream of Coachella pictures is putting us in a constant state of FOMO. On Earth Day I encourage you to take a moment to look around and appreciate where you are in life. Try to bless others by sharing something or putting a kindness out into the world. Whether it’s giving someone a ride to work or buying someone a coffee that’s behind you in the Starbucks line, celebrate the planet by being kind to someone you share it with.
