Earth Day is a very special and meaningful day that we should all pay our respect too. We are having difficulties of handling one child with all their activities and behaviour. Imagine how difficult would the mother of all nature faces with us. All the pain we gave to this earth is now paying as with so much of disasters.\r\n\r\nThis is the 50th Earth Day celebration and all we can do is just sit at home and contribute to our mother earth. There are many things that you can do as s contribution for the earth just from home with your kids during this lock down.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nFor most people it goes under the radar, unnoticed and uncelebrated. In a society where we honor each other with celebrating birthdays, Mothers\/Fathers Day and more. So let\u2019s come together and honor the earth that allows us to eat, breathe, love and exist. Here are 10 simple ways you can celebrate this Earth Day!\r\n1. Practice Yoga Outdoors\r\nFresh air, a natural setting, no butts in your face and no need for electricity. Ending the yoga with a meditation and offering a little love and gratitude to the earth would be a beautiful way to complete this natural yoga experience at home with your kids.\r\n2. Recycle\r\nAs Voltaire says,\u00a0\u201cno snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible,\u201d yet where would the avalanche be without each snowflake? In the same way, our individual and seemingly small habits can combine to have a powerful effect -- and recycling is a great example of this.\r\n\r\nGet the kids involved too and help create some positive habits for generations to come! Meanwhile, during this lock down it is very much easier for you to get your kids in recycling and do some inventory things with the recycle product.\r\n3. Cleaning the Unwanted\r\nAs you are at home and your kids or family is with you right now and also the Ramadhan is getting closer. Why not make a house cleaning process. As the seasons here isn't stable and most off the time the rain falls. This cause the cases for dengue fever is getting high.\r\n\r\nWe are mis-looking at it due to the corona impact. there are more than 23k cases in Selangor itself due to dengue. So doing a house cleaning with your kids would help saving the earth and many people as well.\r\n4. The Big Turn Off\r\n\r\n\r\nDid anyone else\u2019s mum ever bang on about turning off appliances or lights when you were a child? Chances are she was trying to save money on the power bill, but money isn\u2019t the only thing you\u2019ll be saving.\r\n\r\nFor today, try turning off appliances at the wall when you\u2019re not using them, or switching off lights when you leave the room. It sounds so simple but still worth mentioning as it still takes conscious effort! You will be saving a lot for the earth rather than the money.\r\n5. Unplug The TV\r\nRelax, it\u2019s only one day! Following on from the previous point, why not keep the TV switched off all day? By making it a \u2018no TV\u2019 day, you\u2019ll have some extra time to connect with nature in some way.\r\n\r\nInstead spend this time with fun activities at home. Read out books with your kids, tell them a story of your childhood or even you can read out a story book and ask them to act like one.\r\n6. Get Planting\r\n\r\n\r\nToday\u2019s the day to take the plunge and create a veggie patch. You\u2019ll not only be eliminating the carbon emissions that are involved in getting produce to plate, you\u2019ll also be able to enjoy fresh, organic produce whilst saving some money. If you find the idea of a veggie patch daunting or if you have limited outdoor space, you could start by planting some fresh herbs or a couple of lettuces in a bucket -- or for a rustic look, an old wine barrel.\r\n7. Use Earth-Friendly Cleaning Products\r\nIt\u2019s easy to just keep using chemical-laden cleaning products without giving it a thought, so try being really conscious about what you are using to clean with. Having to wear gloves and being advised to not breathe in the fumes should be a sign that what you\u2019re using is not a healthy option.\r\n\r\nWe all want our homes to be clean and germ-free, but we don\u2019t need to rely on chemicals to achieve that. There are many cost-effective, green-friendly options to choose from and today\u2019s the day to give them a go. If you are really resistant to spending extra money on cleaning products, then why not do some research into cleaning with fresh lemon juice or vinegar water.\r\n8. BIO Grocery Bags\r\nMaking the effort to put reusable shopping bags in your car? You could start a new habit that would reduce the use of plastic bags. I\u2019m sure I don\u2019t need to mention how horrid they are for the environment.\r\n\r\nThere are so many nifty reusable bags that fold up to a teeny tiny size, making earth-friendly shopping easy and convenient. If you don\u2019t want to spend money on reusable bags, take an extra backpack or duffel bag and leave those plastic bags behind.\r\n9. Be A Vegetarian For A Day\r\nSome of us love meat, some of us detest it, and some of us just go along with the flow of what appears on the plate. Today why not make a conscious choice to say no to meat and try some of the mouth-watering vegetarian options out there.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe excessive demand for meat creates an excessive strain on environmental resources, and the more we ask for, the more our planet suffers. A quick search online will give you tons of easy and delicious\u00a0vegetarian recipes, so for one day why not give it a go!\r\n\r\nAnd if you\u00a0really can\u2019t go without meat for a whole day, at least commit to having one of your meals today be a vegetarian meal. But if that one day gives you a better feeling of being a veggie, why not try to be as it for the rest of your life slowly.\r\n10. Walk or Cycle\r\nWe are in lock down but still some people have to go outside for many purposes such as buying groceries or any other reasons. Even some people are working in the office or company on this lock down days. For them, it is the best way to show your contribution by not using car or motorcycle on this day.\r\n\r\nInstead, you can have a walk or cycle to the nearest grocery shop to buy things. And for the working people you can have a public transport in option but with all the safety precautions and social distancing. Make sure after you're back home from work never touch anything and straight away to your bathroom and take a bath.\r\n\r\nSo, how are you celebrating and honoring the earth this Earth Day?\u00a0 It is the 50th Earth Day celebration and due to the lock down of Covid-19 the Earth is getting recovered from many pollution.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThis has been a biggest contribution so far by the entire world.
