Earth Day is an important day to celebrate because it is a reminder of the importance of our planet and all that it provides for us. It is a day to come together and learn more about environmental issues, and to take action to protect our planet.

Earth Day is also a day to celebrate the beauty of our planet. We are so lucky to live on a planet that is so full of life and wonder. Earth Day is a day to appreciate all that our planet has to offer, and to commit to protecting it for future generations.

1- Upcycle old clothing

Upcycling is the process of reusing old materials to create something new. There are endless possibilities when it comes to upcycling, so get creative and see what you can come up with. We love to refashion clothing from the thrift store, whether it’s sweatshirts, denim, old t-shirts or linen, we try incorporate sustainability in most of our DIY projects. Try this idea of upcycling frames into serving trays.

2- Grow your own food

Growing your own food is a great way to reduce your impact on the environment. You can grow food in your backyard, on your balcony, or even in your kitchen window.  Learn the latest trends in growing a lush garden from our friends at Burpee Home Gardens. We personally love the tomatoes!

3- Create a terrarium

A terrarium is a miniature ecosystem that can be created in a glass jar or container. Terrariums are a great way to learn about plants and the environment, and they can also be beautiful additions to your home.

4- Make a compost bin

Composting is a natural way to recycle food scraps and yard waste. Compost can be used to fertilize plants, which helps to reduce the need for chemical fertilizers.

Happy 4th of July from Newport, RI. 🇺🇸❤️🤍💙🇺🇸 One day only to take it all in! God Bless America. 🙏🏻⭐️🇺🇸 

The very first pic is the reading of the Declaration of Independence in Washington Square on the steps where it was originally read in 1776. 🇺🇸 The tradition has been carried on by the Sons of the Revolution since that time and remains an important part of Newport's Independence Day celebration! 🇺🇸

The rest is us enjoying the history, sites and sounds of Newport and Providence RI. 

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! Proud to be an American! 🇺🇸
