AT HOME

Every day we can take small actions at home to protect the planet. We don’t even need our parents’ permission! 

There are so many simple actions each of us can take. We can compost, turn lights off when we’re not in the room, eliminate plastics, and conserve water. We can plant gardens and avoid using pesticides, ride bikes, hang dry our clothes, recycle, unplug devices, and eat less meat. If every one of us did one small thing a day, we’d surely see our small actions make a difference. 

Committing to starting in our homes means we’re taking steps to protect our future, teach our family, and establish good habits that mirror how we can take direct action in our communities.

Plant a tree

Trees help to slow climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide. They also provide shade, which helps keep streets and houses cooler in the summertime and reduces the need for air conditioning.
