At DeLillo Chevrolet, we love anything that inspires a greener lifestyle. Earth Day is a great reminder that it’s up to us to protect our planet. Here are three ways how you and your family can make a difference and celebrate Earth Day this year.
Start a garden
Earth Day shouldn’t just be a one-day thing; it should be an inspiration to make changes and tweaks for a more sustainable lifestyle moving forward. Gardening is a great way to create a positive relationship with the Earth, and to get away from processed foods and major factory farms. Start small by planting a couple of herbs, then let your garden grow from there.
Make your car greener
This day is a great opportunity to ride your bike to work or walk to the grocery store. But for your usual daily commute, look into ways to make your vehicles more efficient. Start by cleaning out any excess junk in your car. The extra weight requires more gas to move it. Then, learn about the different ways in which you can develop green driving habits, like using less aggressive acceleration and avoiding idling.
There’s no better way to rekindle your relationship with planet than by spending some quality time together. Plan a picnic with your family or a long hike at a local state park. There are so many ways to enjoy the planet, from planting a tree to bird watching. Find a new way to get the most out of nature with your family this Earth Day.
Since its discovery, Americans have been drawn to the West. The sunshine, the sweet scent of orange groves, and the seemingly infinite and variable vacation destinations make it hard to resist. Whether you live in the area or are flying in from elsewhere, whether you’re looking for a wholesome family getaway or a place to party away the exam blues, everyone should experience a spring break trip in California at least once. Here are some of our favorite picks.
This bustling west coast city is home to plenty of attractions sure to enchant the family. From the magical Disneyland to Universal Studios to the sunny Santa Monica Pier, you can plan endless days in the sun. Rent rollerblades or bikes at Venice Beach and be sure to grab a tasty lunch at a local taco truck. Just remember to stop in and say hi to us at DeLillo Chevrolet!
For less city and more natural wonders, you can’t go wrong with Big Sur. This gorgeous, rocky stretch of the central California coast is known for its rocky overlooks, beautiful hiking trails, and its friendly, laid back, California culture.
Spring is the perfect time to visit Palm Springs, a desert city just two hours east of Los Angeles in the Coachella Valley. It’s warm enough to take a dip in the pool at your mid-century modern hotel, but cool enough to be comfortable enjoying a game of golf or a visit to Joshua Tree National Park. This resort town has so much art, nature, and experiences unique to it, it’s a must-visit on any spring break bucket list.
Don’t forget to stop by DeLillo Chevrolet to make sure your vehicle is ready for its next road trip!
