2 ways to help the planet while self-isolating this Earth Day

It was predicted to be the largest global mobilization in history. But now Earth Day is going to look different this year.
In light of the coronavirus crisis limiting large, in-person gatherings, Earth Day celebrations will be going digital.
Earth Day Network, the organization that coordinates official Earth Day events around the world will now try to unify and track the online conversation.
Earth action will come in the form of digital events, like virtual protests, online teach-ins, social media campaigns and more.
If you participate, use the hashtags #EARTHRISE and #EarthDay2020.

If you're thinking of helping the planet while self-isolating or social distancing at home, try putting your hard work to use for you:
If you used your time to clean the closet - turn that old T-shirt or old towel into a rag. That way you save money on paper towels too.
And you can turn your garbage into garden gold. One of the most effective ways to minimize the amount of garbage your family sends to the landfill is to compost. The EPA says that about 30% of what we throw away are food scraps and yard waste. And composting also controls trash can odor. And the biggest payoff? You'll be left with a rich fertilizer you can use in your own garden.
