Celebrating Earth Day - April 22, 2009


Having a day designated for a specific event (such Earth Day, which is tomorrow, April 22nd) basically serves as a way to remind us about things we really should be mindful of on a daily basis. To me, every day is Earth Day...and it should be because everything we do in our daily lives affects what happens to our planet.

I remember how when I was a child in the 70s we used to ride our bicycles everywhere. There was very little pollution in the air caused by all the vehicle exhaust. These days it's not always practical to ride a bicycle everywhere, but it's not completely impossible either. Whenever we can, we should try to conserve the earth's resources such as fuel, trees, water, and more. A very good website to start at to learn more about conservation and recycling is EarthDay.Gov. It contains information categorized for home, school, work, and communities.

While I searched the Internet for some more information on what I can do to help celebrate Earth Day, I found these nice pictures. They'd be pretty cool to display and remind ourselves about protecting the planet we live in. They are also eye-catching enough for use in teaching the younger generation about Earth Day and Earth Week.
