Earth Day is a day that was founded by Senator Gaylord Nelson and focuses on environmental awareness. Another Earth Day called International Earth Day takes place earlier in the year on the Spring Equinox.

I try to be environmentally-friendly every day of the year, but I'm glad there's one day officially set aside now to raise awareness world-wide and to remind us to be more careful with our planet. By changing little things (i.e. don't litter and recycle) or making very big, personal decisions (like choosing to have no children or just one child) our combined affords can have a big impact on our environment. Please visit the EarthDay website and see what changes you might want to implement this year, if even just for one day! If nothing else, we must teach our children to respect our earth and take nothing for granted because this land is not inherited from our forefathers, but merely borrowed from our children.
Thank you and God bless you!
My contribution to preserving our planet:
Planted a garden to support honey bees and pollinators
Use my cloth bags instead of plastic shopping bags
Take shorter showers and turn off water in between sudsing
Help pick up litter around the lake and in nature
Walk more and drive less and ride share whenever possible
Support local farmers by buying local produce as much as I can
Purchase in bulk (large containers) and avoid individual serving sizes to reduce waste
Please help me spread the word about Earth Day and let me know about it so that I can enter you in a special drawing for a small thank you gift from me to you!
