7 Things You Can Do For Earth Day That Actually Matter (PHOTOS)

To get big change, you have to make big changes, which is why we're asking you to go bold for Earth Day this year. Instead of boring you with talk of CFL light bulbs and planting trees, we'd rather focus on changes that are harder to make, but are that much more rewarding. These are changes that go way beyond acting virtuous towards the earth for one day -- here at HuffPost Green we believe the planet needs Earth Day every day. We've put together a list of actions you can take to dramatically reduce your impact on the environment-- they each can make a huge difference. Take a look, and decide what lifestyle change you think people should take for Earth Day and every day.
