Every day should be earth day!

This month we celebrate Earth Day on April 22. 

In recognition of earth day in the month of April here are some simple actions and tips that you can do to make a difference every day of the year. 

  1. Practice sustainable fashion! Donate your old clothes and home goods instead of throwing them out. When you need something, consider buying used items. Used does not always mean unfashionable! 

  2. Always read labels! Use environmentally friendly, non-toxic cleaning products to avoid washing toxic chemicals down the drain! 

  3. Integrate a simple act of green into your daily routine. Take a shorter shower and use a water-saving shower head. 

  4. Save electricity and turn off lights when you leave the room. 

  5. Buy local food to reduce the distance from farm to fork. Buy straight from the farm, frequent your local farmers’ market, or join a local food co-op. 

  6. Buy organic food to keep your body and the environment free of toxic pesticides. Support farmers and companies who use organic ingredients

  7. Bring your own reusable shopping and produce bags to markets and avoid using single-use plastic bags.

  8. Like sipping through straws? Get a durable stainless steel, glass, or bamboo one to use instead of wasteful plastic ones.

  9. Instead of buying water in plastic bottles, invest in a water filter and trusty water bottle(s). Bonus: it’s cheaper in the long run.

  10. Make your own reusable cloth bags from old t-shirts, using basic sewing skills (or no sewing at all) with parent supervision. (Find simple instructions online).

Green STEM Education at PS34 - Go, Green Brooklyn,

Our Green STEM Afterschool students had the chance to meet with the architects and builders from Marble Fairbanks, who are planning and building the new LEED-certified library.  They checked out the “golden shovel” with the President of Brooklyn Public Library, Linda Johnson. Our press team, Madison & Ixchel were busy interviewing attendees. Lana even got some advice from Deputy Brooklyn Borough President, Diana Reyna, on selecting middle schools.
