Earth Day is an annual international holiday widely celebrated by different cultures. A number of cities across the world host elaborate festivals and events to celebrate the beauty of nature and raise awareness on important environmental issues. Even though social activities have recently come to a halt, there’s no need to stop yourself from celebrating Mother Earth even from the comfort of your own home.
If you’re looking for something to do this Earth day, take a look at the following ideas:
Work on your planting or gardening skills
Whether you have a spacious yard, a balcony or simply a windowsill, planting can be both therapeutic and fun! Easily purchase the materials you’ll need online – soil, pots and seeds, and then you can get to work. We love the thought of planting flowers, while veggies and herbs are also a great idea if you love to cook and want to grow your own to have on hand.
Watch a series or documentary
There are so many interesting facts to learn about our planet that make us appreciate it just a little more, and even grow our consciousness over the choices we have the power to make. Next time you’re browsing through Netflix, take a look at their “Nature & Ecology Documentaries” section. There, you’ll find a myriad of visually stunning and informative documentaries to shift your perspective that will keep you watching all day long.
Spread knowledge to your social circle
Social media can be a powerful tool to spread knowledge to others about a topic you’re passionate about. Why not spread a couple of Earth Day facts or tips to show your followers how they can make a difference? Needless to say, be kind to others while doing so!
Bring life to your home with a bouquet
Next time you go on a grocery run, pick up a couple of flowers to bring home and design with. Not only are you supporting the floral industry, but you’ll also have a fun project to celebrate our planet’s natural beauty while spending time indoors.
Learn how to compost
Composting is a form of waste disposal for organic matter such as veggie and fruit peels. The idea is to reduce waste while creating a healthy environment full of nutrients for your garden or yard. There are a couple of steps to consider before you begin to compost. If you’re curious or have ever considered it, spending more time at home is the perfect opportunity to research and put composting into practice.
We hope you liked some of these ideas for activities to work on at home this upcoming Earth Day. Remember, when it comes to celebrating and honoring our planet, no effort is ever too small.
