If we want future generations to enjoy the same pleasures of the Earth that we do, we need to learn more about how we can conserve our natural resources, reduce our energy consumption and help reduce global warming.

Earth Day, April 22, has come and gone but Earth’s challenges remain. Climate change, energy conservation and deforestation are just a few that come to mind. These problems are so huge that we might be inclined to believe that one person cannot make a difference, but that’s not true. Ellen McNeill, owner of, a North Carolina company that sells baby clothes with conservation-inspired messages, has ten tips to help you be more “earth friendly.”

1. Call companies that use more packaging than necessary for their product and ask them to reduce the amount of packaging they use.

3. Recycle all glass, paper, metal, plastic and newspapers and everything you possibly can.

4. Batch your errands to minimize gas consumption.

5. Fix leaky faucets and use low-flow toilets and shower heads.
