I try very hard to be kind to our planet everyday, not just on Earth Day. Our family recycles as many things as we can. We try to turn off lights and unplug appliances that we are not using. Buying food locally helps to reduce air pollution, by decreasing the travel time our food takes to move from where is it produced to our tables. We love to purchase our milk at The Market at Delaware Valley College. The milk is produced and bottled locally. Each week I return in my empty glass milk bottles when I purchase new milk.
In addition to purchasing local foods you can also grow some of your own produce. Last week my daughter and I planted swiss chard, romaine lettuce, green leaf lettuce, cabbage, spinach,and strawberries. These are cool weather veggies that are planted in early spring. Other veggies prefer warmer weather so we need to wait for those. We also planted herbs: basil, dill, parsley, rosemary, sage, and thyme, which are not ready to be outdoors just yet!
