Every Day is Earth Day
22 April, 2022Community & Services
Earth Day is a great reminder to celebrate and protect our planet and its inhabitants. It is equally important to be mindful, throughout the entire year, of the impact of our daily actions. Whether we are enjoying one of Orange County’s more than 100 parks or trails, or swapping out that single-use cup for a reusable option, we must constantly remind ourselves that our natural environment is essential to human health.
Here are some ways we can take action today:
- Download the free iNatuarlist App and participate in this year’s City’s Nature Challenge with the Nature Conservancy
- Pick up trash by lakes or storm drains
- Host a tree planting in your neighborhood
- Plant native or Florida-friendly plants with low nitrogen fertilizers
- Participate in your local community garden
- Carpool, take transit, or transition to a hybrid electric vehicle
- Purchase energy efficient appliances
Your impact makes a difference in our community! Let’s continue to celebrate our planet every day!
