How to Celebrate Earth Day in Greeley, CO

There are many simple and enjoyable ways to celebrate Earth Day and contribute positively to the environment. Here are 5 easy ideas:

  1. **Donate your unwanted items locally**
    Donate your vases to Mariposa Plants and Gifts in Greeley, CO. Your dusty vases sitting idle at home can find a new purpose and bring joy to others. When you donate your vases to Mariposa Plants & Flowers, you’re not just decluttering your space, but also supporting their mission to promote sustainability in the floral industry. Please ensure they’re in good condition and have been cleaned.
  2. **Reduce, Reuse, Recycle**
    Make a conscious effort to reduce your waste by recycling and reusing items whenever possible. Set up recycling bins in your home or workplace, and try to buy products made from recycled materials.
  3. **Plant a Garden**
    Begin to plan what type of garden you want to plant this spring.  Refer to our “Top 5 Garden Centers in Greeley, CO, and Surrounding Areas” blog on where to buy plants and seeds locally in Northern Colorado.
  4. **Replace Disposable Items with Reusable Ones**
    Use reusable bags, water bottles, and coffee cups instead of disposable ones, and opt for eco-friendly products whenever possible.  Switch to reusable cloth bags and containers on Earth Day instead of using plastic bags and bottles to hold your groceries and drinks.
  5. **Support Local Farmers and Sustainable Businesses**
    Buy locally grown produce and support businesses that prioritize sustainable practices. This reduces the carbon footprint associated with transportation and encourages sustainable agriculture.
