Earth Day – 50 Years!! On April 22nd the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day was celebrated! While the day has passed, we should keep it in our hearts all year long.
Here’s a few tips to help the earth in Montclair…
Help clean the planet by spending time picking up litter around the neighborhood.
Brainstorm energy-friendly ideas for around the house. Cut back on energy waste, such as switching to LED bulbs, turning off the AC when you’re not home is a few ideas.
Start a compost bin in your backyard. This eco-friendly way of disposing of veggie scraps and other bio-degradable waste products not only cuts back on the amount of trash you produce, but it creates a nutrient-rich compost mixture that can give your garden a boost! (Please refer to Community Guideline 5.4.5 Compost Piles).
