Welcome to Earth Day 2018!
It has been over 365 days of energy saving, water consciousness, and active environmental contributions by you and your community! For a quick recap lets talk about some of the things that has helped make this Earth Day incredible! This year the U.S has increased solar and wind generation projects, while simultaneously decreasing non-renewal energy projects such as coal. These projects produce positive benefits by reducing carbon emission released the air, over decreasing the greenhouse effect affect global temperature increases. The air will additionally be more cleared of dangerous chemical pollutants usually the byproduct of coal plants known to pose dangerous environmental and health hazards.
And most importantly, global citizens are making it a trend to be green through social media! This year has come around to be the most successfully holistic and unified effort of global citizens in becoming environmentally conscious. From here on out, the progressive movement toward a global system of energy responsibility is one step closer to making non-renewal energy sources obsolete.
To encourage and continue the Earth Day celebration, Broadway Stages will share some more tips and tricks to help encourage a greener environment:
- Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle…. And Repair!
Everyone knows the 3R’s Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle but not many people know its cousin Repair. Repairing goods instead of replacing them can significantly reduce your footprint and save you extra costs. For example, buying durable goods will last longer than poorly made or lower quality items which need to be replaced more often.
- Start the Compost Station!
A large percentage of most trash in U.S households are denoted to organic compounds and foods which can be composted. It is time to start considering the benefits of composting. Composting relieves your trashcan of most of its weight and size. Key benefits include replacing your trash bags less often and fertile soil for the basis of your gardening needs!
- Keep the paper in the trees!

As deforestation continues destroy whole ecosystems, global citizens need to help protect our precious forests and trees. So next time you are thinking of writing down anything, make an effort to less no paper trails!
