With Earth Day approaching this Saturday, here are some ideas to get out and support nature:

First off, take a walk! There are walking paths at Leaverton Park, Washington Park, Crawford County Forest Preserve, and so many other places. A great way to support nature, is to get out and enjoy it!

Are you someone who tracks their steps? The app TreeCard plants a tree for every 10,000 steps, and you can earn rewards over time including an annual national park pass (and these retail for $80!)! This is a great way to offset carbon emissions and encourages walking when able to with a reward system. There are so many rewards available that you can redeem, and help out our planet!

Maybe you’re a frequent online shopper? By shopping through the Shop app, you can not only track your packages but also offset carbon emissions as Shop ensures that all deliveries are carbon neutral. This is a great way to still be able to shop online, but feel more environmentally conscious about it.

There are so many ways to enjoy the earth, whether it be going out and enjoying it, or supporting it from your home. This Earth Day, I hope you take a moment and appreciate everything that Mother Earth does for us.
