Earth Day 2018

First celebrated in 1970, Earth Day takes place worldwide on April 22nd. Many events are held throughout the planet to help protect it. According to Earth Day Network, more than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities every year. Each year has a theme and 2018’s theme is dedicated to providing the information needed to eventually end the pollution of plastic. Most of us use plastic everyday even when we don’t realize it by using things like bags, straws, utensils, and bottles. Plastic is also found in other things like electronics, cars, and more. Some of this plastic does get recycled but a lot of it ends up in landfills or in our waterways. Although Earth Day cannot completely stop the pollution of plastic it can certainly improve it with the help of people like you. Here are some things you can do to help out the planet:

  •   Every time you consider buying a disposable plastic item, ask yourself: Do I absolutely need this? Can I use something else that I already have? Could I buy something that I can use long-term instead?
  •   Properly dispose plastic products and be careful not to toss plastic products near waterways, beaches or in open spaces.
  •   Pick up plastic trash whenever you see it, especially in ponds, streams, rivers and on beaches.
  •   Don't buy products containing microbeads, which are plastic particles commonly found in exfoliating body washes and facial scrubs. Instead, purchase products that have natural exfoliates.
  •   Wash synthetic clothes less frequently to reduce the amount of microfibers that are released.
  •   When possible, purchase clothing and other items made of natural fibers when possible.
  •   Get involved in local legislation and regulation to reduce and recycle plastics.

Pentas: They’re low maintenance and one of the easiest flowers to grow in Florida. Pentas bloom nonstop and are irresistible to butterflies and hummingbirds. They produce clusters of red, pink, lavender or white flowers. To grow pentas it’s ideal they be in full sun or part shade and well-drained soil.

Evolovulus: Evoloulus is also known as Blue Daze and it’s a groundcover that offers true-blue flowers. It blooms nonstop, which makes it great for edging garden beds and borders. It is great because it is drought tolerant and once it’s planted it rarely needs water except for natural rainfall. Evolvulus grow about 6 inches tall and 12 to 18 inches wide. It’s best to grow these in full sun or part shade and in well-drained soil.

Coreopsis: It’s Florida’s official state wildflower and one of the brightest you can have in your garden. Most of them show off golden-yellow flowers but sometimes you can find them in shades of yellow, gold, orange, red, and pink. This flower is drought tolerant and highly attracts butterflies. You can enjoy coreopsis most of the year because some bloom in spring while others bloom spring to fall. They do amazing in garden beds and borders as well as containers. These flowers should be kept in full sun or part shade and well-drained soil.

Lavender: This flower is drought-tolerant and attracts bees and butterflies with its spikes of violet-purple, pink or white flower. It does well in sandy soil and resents ground that stays wet for a while. It’s better to keep lavender away from sprinklers that will regularly wet them. This flower is perfect to plant along walkways where you can smell their fragrance. Lavender thrives in garden beds, borders and container gardens.

Purslane: this plant is also known as Portulaca. It’s a heat-loving plant that does well in hot and dry spots which is perfect for Florida.  This plant is traditionally pink, orange, yellow and white. It’s the perfect plant if you want a lot of color in your garden but doesn’t need much care. Purslane grows in full sun and well-drained soil and doesn’t need to water much because it can rot.
