Take These Giving Ideas- Environment To Help Our Planet

Giving back to the planet with these giving ideas – environment will help us with climate change and how we view how precious our planet is. People give back to others, but have you given back to the planet lately.

There are simple giving ideas that take just a few minutes and make a difference to our planet. Why not plant a new herb in your garden, plan a butterfly and bee friendly garden, pick up garbage in your local park, recycle house hold products and containers so we help our planet.

Using the 365give Challenge to give every day makes the world, our planet and yourself happier. How? When we give back we have a visceral response to the small act of giving. Our body and mind change, we ignite our happy hormone so we feel – happier. How simple is this? When we complete a planet give we actually make the planet smile as well.

What would happen if we all did one planet give once a week? How could positively effect our planet in ways we never thought of before. Ready to give it a try?
