Highlight of the Month

Taking Care of Planet Earth

What can you do to help the planet?

Help Planet EarthWe all know that Earth Day is April 22nd.  We all know that we should do something to help the environment.  Everyone--even kids--can do simple things to help conserve energy and resources.  Here's a list of helpful hints you can follow to get green and save the planet:

1.  Don't leave the water running while you're brushing your teeth.  You will save more than three gallons of water each time you brush your teeth just by turning off the water.
2.  Don't leave lights on when no one is in the room.  If you are going to be out of the room for more than 5 minutes, turn off the light.  Turn off things you aren't using.  Lights, computers, TVs and other electronics use a lot of energy.
3.  Close doors when going outside or coming inside when the heat or air conditioning is on.
4.  Take your bike.  Think about walking or taking your bike--not the car--the next time you go to a friend's house.  Makereduce reuse recycle sure you have a safe route to travel and get your parent's permission first..
5.  Remember the three R's: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.  Think about ways to use things over and over again.  Then, if they can't be reused, they may be able to be recycled.  Bring a lunch box instead of a paper bag to school.  Instead of plastic bags you can throw away, try a reusable container to hold your food.  Use both sides of a piece of paper before recycling it.
6.  Say "No bag, thank you."  Whether you're buying toys, snacks or clothes, tell the checkout person you don't need a bag.  By carrying your ownl reusable fabric bag, you'll help reduce the estimated 100 million plastic bags that each year clog sewers, entangle birds, and get swallowed by whales, sea turtles, and other wildlife.
7.  Don't litter.  Not only does trash look bad, it can also be harmful to wildlife.  Animals may eat plastic or paper that smells like food.  Trash can also end up in rivers and streams, which is bad for fish and other girls planting treeanimals that live in the water.
8.  Plant trees to help absorb excess CO2, and to provide shade and windbreaks to keep buildings at more even temperatures so they will require less energy for heating or cooling.
