Earth Day 2009

The celebration of Earth Day on April 22nd began in the United States in 1970 and was the brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson, who had long pondered about finding a way to “put the environment into the political ‘limelight’ once and for all.’ Earth Day is a perfect time to reflect about what you are doing to help protect the environment. There are many ways that you can celebrate alone and with others. ’¢ Plant a tree or shrub ’¢ Build a birdhouse ’¢ Check out a book on protecting the environment from your local library ’¢ Begin a recycling bin at your home or workplace ’¢ Donate your old clothes or children’s toys ’¢ Cook a 100% organic meal ’¢ Ride your bike Whatever you choose to do tomorrow remember that every day should be Earth Day! Anything to help our environment is a perfect thing to do on Earth Day and on every day. So, what are you doing to celebrate the planet today?
