One day a year the world joins together to help care for our environment. I know that it can seem like a daunting task, this whole “environmental awareness” thing, and sometimes we just aren’t sure how to do our part to help. We’re sharing 5 Easy Ways To Celebrate Earth Day this year.
Shop Your Local Farmers Market
Earth day falls on a Saturday this year, which is perfect for celebrating earth day by shopping at your local farmers market. Supporting local farms is good for the environment and your wallet too!
Anyone can do this, even if you live in an apartment. Herbs like Oregano, Basil and Thyme grow well in windowsills. If you have more room, spring is the best time for planting your summer garden.
One of the best ways to appreciate nature is to get out and experience. Take a walk around your neighborhood. Need to run errands? Try walking or riding your bike instead of taking the car. While you’re out and about, pick up any litter you see. Every little bit helps.
By now, most of us realize that recycling makes sense and we should do it. But did you know the EPA and other agencies suggest that electronic waste is the fastest growing waste stream in the world? If you have as many devices as we do in our home, then it’s probably that you have an outdated device gathering dust. Find a responsible e-waste recycling drop off point and take in your old devices!
Eat Something Tasty
What better way to give back to our beautiful mother earth than filling your belly? After a long day of recycling, walking and growing, a girl’s gotta eat.
This Lime Sriracha Tuna Fish Spread is perfect for spreading on crackers, on a sandwich or (if you’re going low carb like me) on lettuce leaves.
When I was creating this recipe I wanted to make something that was filling but also light and refreshing for spring and summer. I think this hits the sweet spot with just a hint of spice for depth of flavor. The best part? It’s Earth Day friendly!

The best part of this tuna recipe is that it not only feeds you and your family but also gives back to the World Wildlife Fund with every Wild Selections® can you purchase. Wild Selections® gives back to the oceans by donating 13 cents from every can sold, for a total of $1 million by 2018, to World Wildlife Fund marine conservation and fishery improvement projects. It “pays it forward” to take care of the oceans for the future!
In the present, they work to fish sustainably by offering Wild Selections®. The blue MSC eco-label on each can of tuna fish tells you the fish in your can comes from well-managed fisheries and healthy fish stocks. In fact, the fish in each can is 100% traceable; visit Wild Selections® to find out where the fish in your can was caught.
You can celebrate Earth Day EVERY DAY with Wild Selections®…and feel good about what you’re feeding your family too, because every can is full of simple, all natural ingredients
