Happy Earth Day!

Today is April 22nd, and you know what that means, it’s Earth Day! Happy Earth Day. Here’s some history about this special holiday. Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970 as a way to celebrate and protect the planet. The holiday brings awareness to environmentalism and the many ways we can protect our planet. Here are just some of the things you can do to celebrate Earth Day:

Plant a Tree

Trees absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Planting more trees is a great way to combat climate change.

Save Water

Turn off the tap when it’s not in use and take shorter showers. Small changes like turning off the faucet while brushing your teeth can save gallons of water.

There are many organizations that offer clean up and recycling services. Consider volunteering your time to help clean up water ways, forests, and other areas.

Spread the Word

The more we learn about climate change and its causes, the more we can fight to reduce our carbon footprint and live greener lives. Help spread the word about environmentalism and encourage your community to live a greener, cleaner lifestyle.
