Filling your apartment with plants is an easy way to decorate, but did you know that the right plants can also improve your health, mood, and productivity? According to a recent study from NASA, apartment plants can remove up to 87 percent of air toxins in just 24 hours!
It’s easy to take the little things for granted. When’s the last time you paused everything for a song that really spoke to your soul, or went outside to just soak up some sunshine? It’s never too late to start truly living, and Earth Day is a great excuse to appreciate those not-so-hidden treasures once again.
Every April 22, we take a moment to appreciate all of the amazing things our planet provides for us (sunny days, beautiful flowers, coffee beans—the list is limitless!) and give back. So what are you going to do? Sure, you could go with a classic Earth Day activity: plant a tree or compost last night’s dinner scraps. But what if you could thank Mother Earth with something a little less messy and a little more long-term?
On Earth Day, we not only celebrate the glorious provisions that the earth provides, but we also celebrate the people and companies that work to improve the environment. While politicians, activists, and non-profit groups may be at the forefront of these environmental efforts, groups of everyday people are doing their part too. For instance, apartment communities across the U.S. are making big, green changes. Check out seven apartment community green efforts that are trending across the country. Is your apartment building joining in?
If you, like many, enjoy living and breathing in a place that can house all humans, you should probably be aware that April 22nd is Earth Day. Also, unless you want to move to Mars in a few years, we’re gonna need to take a little better care of this place we call home. Being a planet-saver doesn’t mean you have to make giant leaps for mankind; together, if we all make small ones, we can have a much larger impact. Take note from the tips below and radically reduce your carbon footprint with a few tiny changes.
On Earth Day, people around the world celebrate all the different ways they are taking care of this planet. Some are grand plans to conserve our natural resources. Other initiatives aim to help entire cities use less electricity and water. But we know that taking care of the earth starts in our homes. There are so many small ways that you can help better our environment on April 22nd this year – right from your apartment home or community.
