Earth Day is April 22. But there are ways kids can help the Earth all year long. What will you do to help the planet?

You can turn off the tap.

It’s important to conserve water. Turn off the faucet while brushing your teeth. That can save 200 gallons of water each month.

You can plant a tree.

Trees are good for the planet. They create oxygen. They also clean the air we breathe.

You can ride a bike.

Cars and trucks pollute the air. Choosing to walk or bike helps keep the air clean. Plus, biking is good exercise!

You can recycle.

Paper, metal, and plastic can be recycled. They can be made into new items.

You can turn off the lights.

Electricity lights our houses. It heats our homes. But electricity uses up energy. Turn off the lights when you leave a room. That saves energy. It helps the environment.

You can pick up litter.

Not all trash makes it into a garbage bin. It can end up on beaches and playgrounds. Grab a bag and some gloves. Ask an adult to take you on a trash hunt. Mother Nature will thank you!
