Celebrate Earth Day

Ways to Celebrate Earth Day

 

At Rothrock Nissan, we believe that we should always be grateful and attentive to the planet and its environment. Earth Day is a great annual reminder of what this planet does for us and what we can do for our planet. Here are several inspiring ways to celebrate Earth Day this year.

Save paper

Are you still getting paper bills and bank statements in the mail? Many companies have an electronic billing option, which can save tons of paper. In fact, if everyone switched to paperless billing, we would save an estimated 19 million trees per year. This Earth Day, make the switch for all of your accounts to a paperless option.

Plant a tree

This traditional Earth Day gesture never gets old, and the planet can never have too many trees! Plant your own or look into local events which may host a whole array of tree, flower, and shrub planting.

Change your light bulbs

Standard, outdated, incandescent light bulbs use up way more energy than their efficient CFL (compact fluorescent) counterparts. By switching your bulbs over, you’ll be helping the environment and your electric bill.

Start composting

Composting is a great way to start putting your waste to use as fertilizer, rather than sending it to the landfill. Not to mention, this perfect Earth Day project extends well beyond the holiday, making it a new, positive habit that you can carry on throughout the year
