Patch Picks: Five Ways to Celebrate Earth Day in Concord
- Check your faucets for any leaks. A faucet leaking only 10 drops a minute wastes about 347 gallons per year.
- Bring your travel mug to and get a free cup of coffee (Friday only)
- Head over to or s and pick up a tree to plant. It's said that one acre of new forest will sequester about 2.5 tons of carbon annually, so keep planting!
- Pack a trash-free lunch
- Recycle, recycle, recycle!
