Happy Earth Day
Earth Day started as a U.S. national holiday in 1970 with an estimated 20 million participants its first year alone! Now Earth Day is an internationally observed holiday that is celebrated in over 175 countries worldwide! It is a day to remember that we all share one planet and need to take care of our home.
This year we hope you feel compelled to do something good for the earth, even in a small way:
Today please try to carry your own reusable shopping tote to the store, turn off the lights when you leave the room, enjoy a beautiful bike ride or walk instead of driving, or maybe pick up just one piece of litter and recycle it! You can even have a Picnic for the Planet — there are picnics being hosted all over the world, join one of these posted on The Nature Conservancy’s website or have your own — what fun!
Have a happy Earth Day!
