YOU NEEDN’T own a hybrid car and live in a house certified by the U.S. Green Building Council to help Mother Nature. Finding small, yet significant, ways nowadays to conserve, reuse, protect and sustain the environment, and the place you occupy in it, can be easy. Just start at home. So don’t just celebrate Earth Day 2013 this weekend, and on its traditional day, April 22, by heading outside to a local celebration. Commit to one or more of the following ways to do your part to go green at home or in your neighborhood. The planet will thank you.
