These Simple Earth Day Tips Will Benefit You as Well as the Planet

Did you know Earth Day is this Sunday, April 22nd?

In fact, on that day events will be held in over 175 countries. Their aim? To increase awareness and appreciation of the Earth’s natural environment.

Having blogged last year about this important date (and having already linked to this page where you can find related events in your area), I’d like to talk about the simple steps that will preserve the environment and provide immediate, measurable benefits for your family and you.

  • If you already own a Mason Home, you’ve already taken a big first step. Our Green for Life program ensures you preserve energy (which saves you money), plus it provides your loved ones with great indoor air quality and helps you lessen your dependence on your car.
  • Using plug-in kettles rather than stovetop ones will help reduce energy consumption.
  • Buying local food also brings about positive consequences for the earth (reduced energy consumption) and for you (fresher, more nutritious, more delicious food). I often tweet about farmers’ markets. (Hint: follow me here.)

What are your favourite tips? I’d love to hear about them!
