Earth Day - Reduce, Reuse, Renew!
Happy Earth Day everyone! Today is the day to celebrate our wonderful planet, Mother Earth. Although those crazy NASA scientists keep saying they've recently found "Earth-like" habitable planets, let's face it they're many, many (1,200 to be exact) light years away. So I guess we better celebrate our own home and here are some ideas on how to do just that:
1. Plant a Tree: Now, if you happen to have a brown thumb like me, don't worry. You don't have to plant a tree in your backyard. Check with your city or local area to see if there will be any public tree plantings that you can get involved with. Since Earth Day coincides with Arbor Day (which is actually this Friday, April 26) and since everyone loves trees, planting a tree in your neighborhood or city is a fun way to do your part.
2. Clean Up Litter: Do you live near a beach? There's probably already a beach clean up planned that you can get involved with. You can also get involved by clearing litter from local highways, neighborhoods, and even parks. Every little bit helps and the bonus is that it makes for a nice community for everyone!
3. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Try to avoid items that come with lots of extra packaging that is unnecessary. Get rid of those plastic water bottles and get a reusable (& BPA free) one that you can carry with you. Buy local products if you can, especially when it comes to local food and produce. For everything else, make sure you recycle as much as possible.
Now you may have noticed that the title of this blog says "Reduce, Reuse, Renew" while #3 above says "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle". Well, you've got a keen eye and no, that wasn't a mistake. We absolutely want you to do all of those things, but since we're in the domain industry, we also want you to renew! That's right celebrate Earth Day by renewing your domains for $0.35 off with our coupon EARTHRENEW. The coupon is only good for today, so use it or lose it before 4/22/13 23:59 PDT!
