Happy Earth Day!  Since the first Earth Day in 1970, billions of people have come together to better the world we live in.

Creating a better living space doesn’t have to cost a lot or take a lot of effort.  In many ways, it’s the small things we do that can have a large impact.  Simply cutting back on disposable goods or reusing and recycling what we do use can help.  Being aware of our footprint on the earth is an important first step.

Here are some ideas for actions you can take on Earth Day and every day after.

Clean water is important, but in many places in the world, people still don’t have access to it.  Donate a little to charity: water‘s campaign to bring drinking water wells to communities in developing countries.

Craft brewers and the Natural Resources Defense Council team up for clean water.  Enjoy a craft beer to celebrate the day.
