Today is the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day
Happy EARTH DAY to everyone!
If you haven’t already been actively participating in doing your part to improve life here on our planet, it’s definitely time to think about contributing to the bettering of our wonderful Planet Earth — you could actively be doing more recycling, composting, planting something “green” (such as a tree, plants or maybe a sustainable garden), changing to more energy efficient light bulbs, picking up trash in the neighborhood, or simply enjoy the benefits of being more active by getting out and enjoying nature more by hiking, cycling, jogging, etc.
Today would be an ideal day to learn more about what you can do to improve your environment and be more aware of the world around you. Here are a few resources that you can look into for more information:
- Try visiting Earth 911 — which covers real-time events around the world plus local recycling and environmental information services, the latest “green” tips and business solutions
- Join the Earth Day Revolution by visiting the Earth Day Network Action Center — covering core issues and actions being taken dealing with Advocacy, Climate Change, Conservation & Biodiversity, Energy, Food & Agriculture, Greener Economy, Green Schools, Recycling & Waste Reduction, Sustainable Development & Clean Water
- Or how about viewing Rising Sea Levels — which show animations of the effects of ice melting on a large scale around the world
- Check out NASA Earth Day Photos — As part of Earth Day, NASA released their top ten favorite photos taken by the crew from the International Space Station.
- Learn more about the History of Earth Day from the Earth Day Network
- See how the first Earth Day came about by the founder of Earth Day, the former Senator Gaylord Nelson, in his own words at this EnviroLink
Always Remember the Five ‘R’s’…..
Reduce – Reuse – Recycle – Replenish – Restore
