April: Celebrate Your Impact

April 1st: Encourage your household to recycle motor oil from cars and lawn mowers. Call your local authorities to find the most eco-friendly place to dispose of it.




April 2nd: Defrost your freezer. It will run more efficiently and save your household money.

April 3rd: Unplug the chargers and save money. Reduce your electricity bill by unplugging chargers for your cell phone, digital camera, and MP3 player.

April 4th: The cheapest and most environmentally-sound way of drying your clothes will always be to hang them out to dry.

April 5th: Turn off the water between shampooing and conditioning your hair. A simple turn of the knob can save up to 50 gallons of water a week.

April 6th: Turn off your air conditioner and invest in a few fans. Fans use only one tenth of the energy air conditioners do.

April 9th: Next time you celebrate with a little retail therapy, look for clothes made from organic fabrics. Their production is less harmful on our land.

April 11th: Buy organic soaps and dishwashing detergents to avoid polluting your hometown's water supply.

April 14th: Spring clean this season with reusable rags made of old T-shirts instead of wasteful paper towels.

April 15th: Set your refrigerator to 40F and the freezer to 5F to save up to 5% of energy consumption.

April 16th: Recycle mindfully by sorting your recyclables. Environmental action starts with you.

April 17th: This Earth Day, treat yourself to an organic snack of fresh fruits and vegetables. If you won't do it for your mother, do it for Mother Earth.

April 18th: Volunteer to educate your class on global warming. Explain its impact on your daily lives and your future, and create a plan of action.
