Three Things to Benefit The Earth During Earth Week and Beyond

Updated on June 2, 2009

With Earth week here many people are going to want to be doing something that they normally do not do that can help the Earth. I know that many people will be looking for a variety of things that they can do that can help the Earth during Earth week, but some of the things that you can do will benefit the Earth more than just during Earth week. Here are a couple of things that you can do during Earth week that will benefit the Earth for longer than just during Earth week.

The first thing that you can start doing and if you continue doing this on a regular basis will benefit the Earth long term is start a recycling program in your home. If you are really ambitious though expand your existing recycling program and try to turn it into a neighborhood thing that everyone can join in. However, you might have challenges with a neighborhood program because some of your neighbors might not want to recycle.

The second thing that you can do that will benefit the Earth long term is planting a tree. Planting a tree does take a long time to grow to, but during that time it will be helping absorb some of the additional Carbon that is being put off by us. Then the tree will provide seeds that can provide even more trees which will help the planet even more. Just imagine that by planting that one tree all the benefits that you can have and the life long enjoyment that is available such as climbing a tree, if it is a fruit tree enjoying the fruit, and the shade that is available.

The third thing that you can do to help the Earth out during Earth week is to purchase some of the energy efficient appliances or light bulbs. I know that the cost is a little bit higher than some of the other items on the shelf that are not energy efficient, but by having them you will save money on your electric bill and that will reduce the amount of electric that you are using which doesn't sound like much, but every little bit of reduction in the amount of electric that you use reduces the amount that the electric company will have to produce which will reduce the amount of emissions that they have.

While Earth week is when it is more concentrated on what you can do to help the planet, if you do some of these things the impact will be spread out the entire year rather than just on Earth week. I know that these items at least the first and third might end up either earning you money with recycling, or saving your money with the energy efficient appliances. The second item will let you have some fresh air and great shade in your yard. Anything that you do for the good on Earth week though is beneficial and if you carry it out during the rest of the year it gets even better!
