Americare Earth Day

5 Simple Steps You Can Take For Earth Day

At Americare, we know how important our environment is to our health. And we make sure to incorporate strategies in the way we run our operations that help protect and preserve our planet. Because a clean and healthy environment means a better quality of life for all of us—and for the future of our children.

The fate of our water, our air, and our land is in our hands. Let’s celebrate Earth by starting to make small changes to our daily habits that are not only good for the environment, but our health and pockets too! If you haven’t already, here are 5 easy (and sustainable) steps you can take:

Eat Green and Clean: You can find the freshest local farm products in greenmarkets all over New York City! All greenmarket locations accept EBT, Debit-Credit and FMNP. Click here to find one near you.

Grow Your Own Food: If you have a bit of extra green space at home, this summer may be the time to consider creating your own vegetable garden and growing your own food to live a greener lifestyle. Here are tips to get you started.

Drink Tap Water: New York City’s drinking water is the freshest and cleanest around, so you can drink tap water instead of buying bottled ones. But if you’re skeptical about drinking from the tap, you can invest in a water filtering system. Either way, this will save you money–and it’s better for the environment in the long run.

Make Time To Recycle: Waste negatively impacts our natural environment, so make time to recycle. Do you know how to sort your recycling and what belongs in your bin? Here’s a breakdown.    

Volunteer at Cleanups: Hosted by NYC Parks throughout all five boroughs, you can volunteer at a local park to help clean up your place of fun and recreation. Click here to find a cleanup near you.

Wishing you all a HAPPY EARTH DAY!
