Today is Earth Day, and we want to help you take care of our great planet. It's not hard at all if you know where to start. Here are six things you can do now to make a difference:




1) Get a houseplant


This might seem small, but adding a little bit of greenery to your home can help remove harmful particles from the air.









2) Be vigilant of the faucet


We use far more water than we really need. Taking shorter showers, planting drought-tolerant plants, and only running the washing machine when it’s full are just a few ways to conserve this precious resource.









3) Call your energy company


Find out if they have a green energy plan or ask for an audit to see where you may be able to save energy.









4) Shop local


Buying produce from neighboring farms can help reduce your carbon footprint.









5) Change your commute


Try biking to work once a week instead of driving. It's better for the environment and better for you, too.









6) Turn trash into treasure


Before you throwing something away, stop: You might be able to turn it into something useful for your home.









Our Live Green channel has lots more videos with fun projects and ideas to help you to do more to green your lifestyle.




Happy Earth Day,
