9. Participate in a cleanup
If you want to help keep your neighborhood beautiful but don’t have tons of cash, try donating some of your free time instead by participating in a local cleanup. Spending an afternoon at a cleanup gives you a sense of fulfillment, keeps your town clean and helps you meet other eco-minded people in your area.
Visit your local parks or streets department’s Web site to find an upcoming park, river or beach cleanup near you. If you’re having trouble, a Web search with the word “cleanup” and your town’s name should point you in the right direction.
10. Plant a tree
Sure, it would be great if you dug a hole and planted it yourself, but that’s not exactly what we’re talking about. A few clicks on the Web will allow you to plant a tree from the comfort of your own home or office (we promise, we won’t tell the boss on you).
Head to a tree-planting site like Land Care Niagara – which allows you to plant a tree in the Niagara Falls area with a click a day.
