The Earth needs you and Lynnwood needs you for Earth Day 2020!

As we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day on Wednesday, April 22nd we have some Good News to share!

Scientists are reporting the earth’s ozone hole is the smallest it’s been in decades due to the changes in our daily lives from COVID-19. While these changes to our daily lives will not be forever each one of us can commit to making small sustainable changes in restoring our planet. A lot of small changes can lead to big changes.

  • Start a garden.
  • Pull out invasive plants in your yard or garden and replace them with native ones.
  • Use cloth towels instead of paper ones.
  • Change your paper bills to online billing.
  • You’ll be saving trees and the fuel it takes to deliver your bills by truck.
  • Read documents online instead of printing them.
  • Set your office printer to print two-sided.
  • Reduce your meat consumption to curb carbon emissions from the livestock industry.
  • Compost kitchen scraps for use in your garden — turning waste into fertilizer.
  • Take a shorter or fewer showers – seems an easy one right now!
