3 Earth Day Activities

Earth Day 2011 is quickly approaching! Involving yourself in different activities on the holiday is a great way of going green. Here are three Earth Day activities for April 22nd.

On April 22, 1970, Gaylord Nelson, a United States Senator, founded the first Earth Day in an attempt to bring about a better understanding of the affect we have on our planet, and calling us to take action to make positive environmental changes in our community.

1. Attend a recycling event. Recycling events are held throughout most communities in the US on Earth Day. There are some simple rules to recycling events you’ll want to know about. For a full explanation check out Earth Day 2011.

2. Play a green related game. If you have children Earth Day is a great way to educate them on the importance of going green. Scholastic has a big list of Earth Day games you and your children can enjoy.

3. Make a donation. If this is your first Earth Day it might be easier to simply make a donation to an Earth activist group. Donating will get money in the right hands so they can help protect our planet.

  • Earth Day is the perfect time to consider ways we can make our planet a better place. These are all great ideas. I love trees and hate when people cut down big beautiful trees that have taken years to mature to such beauty so I took the time this past week to plant a new tree in honor of Earth Day. Trees help make our air cleaner.

    • NO kidding! I really wish people wouldn’t tear down beautiful trees. Supporting Earth Day is just one way to stop this from happening.

  • You can also get outside and go for a litter walk or help clean up a local park. Adopting an animal at the local zoo or becoming a member of a local zoo, park or nature center is also a great way to recognize the day!
    Great ideas.

    • Yea, those are great ideas as well! Hope you had a wonderful Earth Day.

  • Thanks for the great comment on my blog! These are great activities for Earth Day, just wish I would of been on my computer sooner.

    I agree with you about tearing down trees. Why can’t we support Earth instead of destroying it?
