April 22 is Earth Day. The easiest thing you can do to improve the environment is to do less – shop less, buy less, use less, throw away less, travel less.

While it’s easy to say those things, it may be difficult for you to achieve. Here are some ideas, from Earth Day Network, to get you started:

  • End junk mail – contact Direct Mail Association and ask for your name to be removed from mailing lists
  • Recycle paper, glass, plastic, metal and electronics
  • Compost food waste

My favorite way to avoid waste is to use what you have. Most of us have more than we need and would benefit from shopping our homes before going to the store for something new.

Do you celebrate Earth Day?
