1. Support the Arbor Day Foundation. With each membership you’ll receive 10 free trees to plant. One recommendation is to plant these trees in honor of a local organization. Look for events being held in your state by the Arbor Day Foundation and participate in a tree planting celebration. You’ll not only feel good doing good but can also network with others who share in the same cause.
2. Pledge an act of green and encourage your online friends to do the same! It’s easy to do at EarthDay.org with pre-generated ideas or creating an original idea to show your commitment to going green. We can only hope that one small ripple turns into a wave.
3. Send a free tree e-card to remind friends, family, and co-workers about the importance of taking care of our planet. These e-cards offer interesting facts to help the recipient learn more about the environment, endangered animals, and pollution. An excellent and free activity that you can do virtually with students or children!
4. Organize your own celebration with friends, family, and colleagues! There are plenty of parks, roadsides, and nursing home facilities that could use some tender loving care. Picking up trash, planting trees and flowers, or simply raking up the lawn and composting leaves as a group it is a great way to bond with others and show your commitment to protecting the environment!
