5 Ways to Celebrate Spring
Celebrate the Beauty of Spring
Spring is a great time of rejuvenation, when we all celebrate the beauty of God’s creation after the bleakness of winter. Town Hardware encourages you to make decisions that honor and support the environment during this season. Here are five of the many things you can easily do to help conserve, preserve, and celebrate what God has designed:
Plant a Tree or Spread Wildflowers: Choose and plant trees and wildflowers that are native to the area to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, attract birds, insects, and other pollinators, and prevent erosion for years to come. This can have a long-lasting impact and requires just a small amount of work.
Build a Rain Barrel: Rain barrels help reduce runoff pollution and erosion and can be a great resource in times of drought. Plus, rain water is healthier for plants than tap water because it’s highly oxygenated and free of salts, fluoride, and other inorganic ions.
Hang a Bird Feeder: Instead of banishing wildlife from your backyard, encourage non-human neighbors by hanging feeders for our bird friends to come feast upon. This is a great project to do with kids, as it presents an opportunity to explain how the food cycle works and the benefits of biodiversity.
Eat Locally Grown Food: Not only will eating locally reduce the amount of carbon emissions in the atmosphere (because locally grown produce requires less transportation), but you’ll be helping the local economy by supporting businesses in the area!
Clean up Litter: Many people initiate a “Spring Cleaning” in their homes. Just carry this one step further. Get with friends or volunteer with local organizations to gather together to clean up roadways, highways, or local parks and clear them of litter and other debris. This is a great project to help beautify the area we love and to come together as a community.
