Hey there Earth Day warrior, we see you picking up garbage in your neighborhood, using less plastic, and recycling! We want to draw awareness to planet sustainability, not only on Earth Day but every single day- because (with the exception of astronauts) we're firmly planted on terra firma for the long haul. Whether you just walked into the kitchen to eat one of these cookies after a community cleanup or you're teaching an object lesson to your kids, Earth Day Cookies are a fun way to celebrate. Learn the simple steps to making these sugarless sugar cookies and check out NOAA's list below of things you can do to be more sustainable and green in your day-to-day actions!
- Reduce, reuse, and recycle. Cut down on what you throw away. Follow the three "R's" to conserve natural resources and landfill space.
- Volunteer. Volunteer for cleanups in your community. You can get involved in protecting your watershed, too.
- Educate. When you further your own education, you can help others understand the importance and value of our natural resources.
- Conserve water. The less water you use, the less runoff and wastewater that eventually end up in the ocean.
- Choose sustainable. Learn how to make smart seafood choices at www.fishwatch.gov.
- Shop wisely. Buy less plastic and bring a reusable shopping bag.
- Use long-lasting light bulbs. Energy efficient light bulbs reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Also flip the light switch off when you leave the room!
- Plant a tree. Trees provide food and oxygen. They help save energy, clean the air, and help combat climate change.
- Don't send chemicals into our waterways. Choose non-toxic chemicals in the home and office.
- Bike more. Drive less.
