Four ways to make a difference on Earth Day (and everyday)

In April we enter a time where we focus on the planet we call home. Earth Month is a time for us to reflect on our impact on the environment and think about ways we can take action to preserve it for future generations. Originating with the celebration of Earth Day on April 22nd, Earth Month extends the focus on environmental consciousness throughout the entirety of April, fostering a collective effort towards positive change.

This year, the theme for Earth Month and Earth Day is "Planet vs. Plastics," highlighting the pressing need for a 60% reduction in the production of all plastics by 2040.

This theme emphasises the critical importance of addressing plastic pollution, a pervasive threat to both human and environmental wellbeing and calls for:

  • A widespread awareness on the health risk of plastics

  • A rapid phase out all single use plastics

  • An urgent push for a strong UN Treaty on Plastic Pollution

  • A demand an end to fast fashion.

There are many ways to get involved during Earth Month, from participating in local clean-up events to reducing your carbon footprint. Here are some ideas for how you can get involved during Earth Month:

1. Participate in a local clean-up event

Joining local clean-up efforts not only benefits the environment but also fosters community engagement and empowerment. Contact your local government or environmental organisations to discover clean-up events in your area and get involved.

2. Switch to eco-friendly products

Reducing your carbon footprint can start with the products you use on a daily basis. Switching to eco-friendly products like reusable water bottles, cloth shopping bags, and energy-efficient light bulbs can make a big difference in the long run.

3. Reject fast fashion

Challenge the unsustainable practices of the fast fashion industry by making mindful choices about clothing consumption. This $2.5 trillion fast fashion industry is shockingly unregulated. With cheap production, lowered costs and societal pressure to constantly consume clothing, fashion’s numbers are staggering:

4. Educate yourself and others plastics
