How You Can Help the Earth

Today is Earth Day. This is a day to think about the environment. I found a list of a few things that everyone can do to help make the Earth better. 1.Plant a tree. Trees stop the rain from washing away the soil and help make the air fresher. 2. Carry your own water bottle and your own shopping bag so that you use less plastic. 3. Become a vegetarian. That’s a little difficult for me because I love meat, but I am trying to eat more vegetables. Farmers use a lot more land, water, and energy to raise animals than to grow plants. 4. Walk or ride a bike as much as possible. Then you won’t need to use gasoline. And finally, 5. Remember that you can do these things every day. You don’t have to wait until the next Earth Day comes.
