Earth Day 2024

Earth Day Think Green

Hello world – it's Earth Day 2024 , and it's time to get excited about our planet and how we can make a difference. This year’s theme is Planet vs. Plastics, so here are some things you can do to get in the earthy spirit. 


1. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle 

We’ve all heard it, it’s the bread and butter of sustainability. Reduce your waste, reuse when you can and recycle materials that can be recycled. Take a look around your room and kitchen. Are there ways you can cut back on waste, reuse items, or recycle more effectively? Get creative and find ways to minimize your ecological footprint. 

2. Use reusable bags 

Plastic bags are convenient to us, but not to the planet. Carry reusable bags when you go shopping to avoid having to use (and pay for) single-use plastic bags. When you really need to get one, try to keep it clean so you can reuse it again. 

3. Say no to straws 

We’ve all seen that video of the turtle. But on top of harming our wildlife, plastic straws are also harmful for the earth in general. Skip the straw or opt for alternative materials like metal, bamboo or paper.  

4. Shop in bulk 

Shopping in bulk can reduce your packaging waste – think rice, nuts, pasta. Some grocery shops even allow you to fill your own containers with produce to reduce plastic waste.  

5. Avoid single use cutlery 

You can carry your own reusable utensils or even use wood cutlery to reduce plastic usage. 

6. Help with cleaning up 

You can join clean up events on beaches or communities to help remove plastic pollution from natural habitats – a lot of places will even reward you for picking up plastics.  

Every time’s a good time to #ThinkGreen. Let's all get involved, get creative and show some love to our planet.  🌍💚
