5 Fun and Family Friendly Activities to Make a Difference!

Can you believe it's already time to celebrate Earth Day again? This year Earth Day is Planet vs. Plastics.

It's a special day when we come together to show our planet some extra love and appreciation. But guess what? Earth Day isn't just about one day—it's about making everyday choices that help our environment thrive.

Planet vs. Plastics unites students, parents, businesses, governments, churches, unions, individuals, and NGOs in an unwavering commitment to call for the end of plastics for the sake of human and planetary health, demanding a 60% reduction in the production of plastics by 2040 and an ultimate goal of building a plastic-free future for generations to come.

So, let's dive into some exciting activities you can join in to make a positive impact and have a blast doing it! For Earth Day 2024 on April 22nd, EARTHDAY.ORG is unwavering in our commitment to end plastics for the sake of human and planetary health, demanding a 60% reduction in the production of ALL plastics by 2040.

1. Plant a Tree: Who's up for getting our hands dirty and planting some trees? It's like giving a big green hug to our planet! Grab your pals or family members and head out to a local spot in need of some tree love. Not only will you be adding beauty to your surroundings, but you'll also be helping to clean the air and create homes for wildlife. It's a win-win for everyone! When choosing your tree, a great place to go is a NZ native. Make sure that there is enough space for the tree to grow.

2. Organise a Community Cleanup: Ready to roll up your sleeves and make your neighbourhood sparkle? Organising a community cleanup is a fantastic way to bring people together and make a tangible difference. Whether it's picking up litter at the park or tidying up your local streets, every piece of trash removed is a step towards a cleaner, greener community. Plus, it's a chance to meet new friends and have fun while making a difference!

3. Attend a Workshop: Want to learn more about how you can help protect our planet? Why not attend an environmental workshop or seminar? You'll get to dive deep into topics like climate change, sustainable living, and conservation. Plus, you'll meet like-minded folks who are passionate about making a difference. Who knows, you might even come away with some new eco-friendly tips and tricks to try out at home! Check out ecomatters website for some great Earth day workshops.

4. Start a Garden: Calling all green thumbs! Starting your own garden is not only good for the planet, but it's also super rewarding. Whether you've got a sprawling backyard or just a sunny windowsill, there's a garden waiting to be grown. Plant some veggies, herbs, or flowers, and watch your little green oasis come to life. Bonus points for choosing native plants and creating a habitat for bees and butterflies!

5. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Let's make every day Earth Day by reducing, reusing, and recycling whenever we can! Say goodbye to single-use plastics and hello to reusable alternatives. Recycle paper, glass, metal, and plastics to give them a new lease on life. And don't forget about composting—turning food scraps into nutrient-rich soil is like magic for your garden! Together, we can make a big difference, one small eco-friendly choice at a time.

Earth Day is our chance to come together as a global community and show our planet some extra love. So, whether you're planting trees, cleaning up your neighbourhood, or attending a workshop, know that your actions are making a difference. Let's keep the Earth Day spirit alive every day by embracing sustainable practices and inspiring others to do the same. Together, we can create a brighter, greener future for all living beings on this beautiful planet we call home!
