Earth Day is around the corner, like April 22, and many people are looking to see what they can do to celebrate this special and important day. Earth day is more than just caring for the earth, its appreciating the planet God has given us to live life. If you want to care for the Earth more, and you want to take the time to celebrate Earth Day, then join me on facebook and I will help you to figure out exactly how you want to celebrate and what needs to be done (and no… we should not make the top 1% richest Americans pay 70% of their first million dollars). Check it out, let’s problem solve and find out ways we can make this earth a better place to live, and let’s have a great time when it comes to helping the Earth be a fantastic place to live for all of us.
According to Wikipedia, ” Earth Day is an annual event, celebrated on April 22, on which day events worldwide are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network and celebrated in more than 193 countries each year.”
God gave us this planet, and we should make sure we keep it in pristine conditions for the future generations. Let’s teach our children to plant as much trees so we have the oxygen we need to breath. Let’s teach them to be responsible business owners and clean up their messes when they make it. Let’s be a part of global campaign aimed at educating people about environmental issues and factors responsible for environment degradation.
Earth Day is more than just a single day — April 22. It’s bigger than attending a rally and taking a stand. Here are books and ways you can celebrate Earth day.
1. Do you love puzzles? Maybe doing one will spark a conversation about our beautiful planet.
2. You can volunteer your time at a community garden and teach your kids to grow vegetables and plants and teach them how land ownership was a precious commodity that can help sustain their basic need to eat. There are a lot of great things that you can do, and on Earth Day, there are usually local activities as well.
3. Did you know a 12-year-old boy developed a sponge-patterned skin discoloration on his left thigh after playing a computer game for several hours a day over a period of a few months. It’s true! “It’s related to the skin having prolonged exposure to a certain high temperature, like with a laptop.
4. Education is the key to everything not just the environment. If you can read proficiently you will be able to participate in society and fully communicate and teach your children the wisdom of past ages.
5. Do you want to encourage others to get in on the celebration? Then consider letting your friends know about the facebook party and join us. RSVP going and leave a comment there so that people can write down the activities that they pledge to do for the environment throughout the next year or so.
6. Teach your kids about recycling and get them to help you implement a plan? If you already have one, improve it, and start looking into what books we have in order to teach them about recycling. If you haven’t already visited my website, then you want to take a look and see what we have so you can recycle more effectively in your local area and if you can work to make a difference in that way.
7. Do your faucets leak? If so, did you know that this wastes a lot of water on a yearly basis? If you haven’t done so yet, then you may want to look into how you can go ahead and get started with it during the next year.
8. Plant a tree. Trees are a big part of our earth, and planting one will just add to the health and wellness of the world that we live in.
9. Is your roof well insulated? Poor insulation leads to you to waste energy If you haven’t done so yet, then you may want to look into how you can go ahead and get this fixed as soon as possible. You will be surprised at how much you will save on your energy bill.
10. Go to a local event. A lot of communities will have an “Earth Day fair” or something similar that your family can enjoy together and learn from.
