Conserve natural resources:
Skateboard to school or work instead of driving. Not only is skateboarding a fun way to get where you’re going, but it’s also good for your health and saves gas.

More Earth Day Tips/Facts:

  • Wash clothes in cold water whenever possible. As much as 85 percent of the energy used to machine-wash clothes goes to heating the water.
  • Unplug appliances when you’re not using them. Or, use a “smart” power strip that senses when appliances are off and cuts “phantom” or “vampire” energy use.
  • Recycled paper requires 64% less energy than making paper from virgin wood pulp, and can save many trees.
  • It takes 90% less energy to recycle aluminum cans than to make new ones.
  • One gallon of motor oil can contaminate up to 2 million gallons of water. So dispose of properly!
  • 14 billion pounds of trash is dumped into the ocean every year.
  • The energy we save when we recycle one glass bottle is enough to light a traditional light bulb for four hours.
