Happy Earth to all. I hope you are looking at ways to save this earth. There are tons of small things we can do on an every day basis that can help. We all don’t have to wait till earth day to contribute.

  • Unplugging your wires is a smart move and takes very little time. Even when our phone or computer is not connected to the wire, it uses energy. So its best to unplug them.
  • When possible switch electronics off. This way we are not using up power. Does your laptop really have to be on 24/7?
  • Recycle old electronics. You can call your recycle company and ask them if they have drop off locations where you can drop off these for free.
  • If you have electronics that are working but you don’t need them, then donate them. At Least someone will use it or reuse it.

If you have other ideas please do share and enjoy earth day.

    The genesis of Earth Day is credited to Gaylord Nelson, then a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin, after witnessing the ravages of the 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California. Inspired by the student anti-war movement, he called for an environmental teach-in, or Earth Day, to be held on April 22, 1970. Over 20 million people participated that year, and this Earth Day is now observed on April 22 each year by more than 500 million people or [A href=""]web application developer[/A] and several national governments in 175 countries.
