Earth Day ~ Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014

Earth Day has been celebrated in the United States and around the world since the idea first caught on in 1970. Since then, people all over the world celebrate our beautiful planet by participating in events that highlight ecology and the environment. Many cities organize special events for volunteers and activists to participate in actions that help to protect the Earth, such as beach clean-ups and tree plantings. In addition, many activities are created to help people enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors. 

If you are lucky enough to live in or near a coastal community, you can celebrate Earth Day by going to the beach, enjoying the wind, surf and sand, and maybe building a sand castle! If you bring a picnic lunch, make sure that you bring a garbage bag to put your trash into, in case there are no trashcans nearby. Also, bring a separate bag for your recyclables (remember, it is Earth Day, and this day and every day you should do your part to help our planet!).
