Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day!
Earth Day was first created in 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson. The holiday was created due to the lack of acts and laws in place to help preserve the earth. Every year on April 22 over 195 countries take part in the world’s largest civic event, that is more than 1 billion people. There are many ways we can all help do our part to help preserve the earth. Simple things such as picking up litter, recycling, and planting trees. Making your home more energy efficient will help not only the earth but your pocket as well.
Unplugging devices and appliances that are not in use. Even though they are not on or being used, power is still flowing through them. Unplugging things that are not being used can save you roughly $165 per year and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
Insulating your doors and windows will help keep your heating and cooling bills down by more than 20%. This helps reduce the number of pollutants such as carbon, sulfur and nitrogen that are released into the air.
Getting rid of your standard light bulbs and changing them to LED can save you up to $20 per bulb on your electric bill. LED bulbs also last 80% longer than your standard light bulb that means less waste in landfills.
If we all work together, we can help persevere the earth for future generations to come.
