Going Green for Earth Day

Earth Day is on April 22 and to get in the mood of the environmentally conscious day, we’re thinking green all month long. As the 22nd approaches, keep checking back here for ideas on how to lead a more eco-friendly lifestyle.

Our Go Green tip for today: Use energy-efficient light bulbs. If everyone replaced just one old light bulb with a new compact fluorescent bulb, the pollution savings would be like taking millions of cars off the road!

Through small acts every day we can all make a big difference. For helpful ideas on how to get the whole family involved in going green, pick up a Go Green Family Activity Kit—set goals as a family, track your progress, and get exclusive access to online games. Just because you’re doing good doesn’t mean you can’t be having fun, too!
