5 Great Ways to Celebrate Earth Month

(StatePoint) Want to go green while practicing social distancing? Here are a few ideas to consider:

• Maximize your time at home by planting a garden. Not only will the plants you grow help to reduce carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere, but you’ll also be creating a healthy habitat for birds, insects and other small critters. Plus, if you plant vegetables, you can reduce your carbon footprint by reducing the amount of food you need to purchase that was shipped long distances.
