How to Celebrate Earth Day in 2020

Yellowstone

On April 22, the world celebrates Earth Day. We've been celebrating this day since 1970, and this one is going to be a very special one. Not only because it's the 50th year of its celebration (although our planet is really around 4.84 billion years old), but also because it falls within an unprecedented time in the history of humanity: a time when we’re all struggling with the unknown, but a time when we're learning that things work out better when we work together to solve them.

Why save planet Earth?

Right there where you are, imagine a bird singing, a butterfly flapping its wings, the relaxing sound of ocean waves or a cascade, a beautiful sunset, the fresh smell of a forest, a mountain range... Did you smile? Now, more than ever, we may be appreciating everything a bit more than we did before.

Our planet gives us air to breathe, food to eat, water to drink, and beautiful sceneries to contemplate. It's where we live, it's where we grow. So we better give it some love.

5 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day

Saving planet Earth is something that needs the contribution of each and every single one of us. That's why this year's topic is action. 

Today we're sharing 5 things you can do to celebrate Earth Day this year:

For many of us it may not be easy to go outside these days to plant a tree or to help clean the ocean. That's something that will be easier to do when all this "craziness" is over. For now, one way to contribute is by donating to organizations that are taking action and helping the planet.

Some of them are:
  • Rainforest Alliance: Dedicated to the conservation of biodiversity and the promotion of environmentally sustainable practices. 
  • Ocean Conservancy: Has been helping clean the oceans for more than 30 years with volunteers from all across the world. 
  • Save the Earth Foundation: Was established in 1972. One of its activities is to support global initiatives such as ocean plastic removal, the development of sustainable cigarette filters, and others such as funding the development of alternatives to single-use plastics. 

      You'll also find lots of organizations locally that you can support.

      2. Join an online event. 

      During Earth Day there will be lots of online events that you can join to learn about ways to save the planet. To join one, check out this map published by the Earth Day Network. You'll find digital events that will take place all around the world. There's something for everyone!

      3. Take a cold shower.

      Cold showers are usually shorter than warm showers. So when you take a cold shower instead of a warm one, you'll probably use less water. And you'll use less gas or electricity. The less you use natural sources makes a difference on the planet and your wallet. 
      Besides, did you know that taking a cold shower in the morning helps you have more energy through-out the day?

      4. Cook at home.

      You may be thinking, "How on earth this can help the Earth?"  It can! The more you cook at home, the less single-use plastics you'll use. Don't forget that single-use plastics are a big issue as they're not biodegradable. And many are ending up in our oceans.
      By cooking at home, you'll not only help the planet, but you'll help your body, and save lots of money.

      Other actions you can take to reduce the use of single-use plastic are simple things like using a tote bag when going grocery shopping or buying biodegradable bags for your trash.

      5. Replace old appliances with energy efficient ones.

      Energy Star means energy efficient, and energy efficiency saves the Planet. Why? Because it saves energy sources and helps in avoiding pollution.
