How to Celebrate Earth Day 2016

Never heard of Earth Day? Celebrated every year on April 22, Earth Day aims to encourage people across the world to be more environmentally friendly. Here’s what you can do to bring your part this year round…


Don’t use a vehicle

Leave the old rust bucket at home and make use of public transport, your feet or share an Uber ride with friends or co-workers.

Organise a Clean Up

We live in a big city and it’s easy for public parks and spaces to become overgrown. Grab a couple of buddies and some bin bags and get cracking. If we all pitch in the city will look sexy in no time.

Plant a Tree

It’s not cold enough yet and if you plant a tree or three on Earth Day, their roots will set in long before the cold does. Pomegranate trees for the win. The more we plant of those the more fruit we’ll have in summer.

Spread the Word

The more people know about Earth Day the more change we will see in the world. We only have one earth – no back up plane, we’re afraid.
