Earth Day is a global holiday that many take pride in celebrating each year.
With the holiday being right around the corner there are several things we should do to get prepared for it.
Sidnea Nguyen, a current Chabot student, said, “Earth day is the one day out of the year where everyone should make sure plastic and paper are being put in the right place. Littering is never ok, but at least for the sake of pollution we should all come together and make this day mean something”.
Earth day is important because just picking something up or recycling something can go a long way.
Sara Trevor, stated, “ The work we do on Earth day is cool, but that should be work we do every day. I know not everyone will agree, but I feel like we could all do our parts and try a little better to stop pollution”.
Besides throwing away trash and helping to pick up litter, there are several other things you can do to prepare or participate in Earth day.
One way to save plastic would be using a refillable water bottle on a daily basis so that water bottles aren’t wasted.
An effective way to stop pollution would be carpooling to work instead of driving by yourself. Not only does it save you gas but it could help save the world as well. Switching up your lifestyle or just tweaking the things you already do can create a safer and greener earth for everyone to live in.
Starting on Monday, April 16th, Chabot will be providing activities and information all week long to get as many people aware of how they can save the earth as possible.Earth Week 2018
