Earth Day is next Wednesday, April 22nd, but what does that really mean?
Aside from being a day to remind us to care for our beloved planet, there are a lot of ways that Earth Day Network makes it possible to get involved.
Like A Billion Acts of Green, which at the time of this writing has reached
1,123, 950, 223 and is moving to reach a new goal of 2 billion!
and the Earth Day Canopy Project, “which plants trees that help communities – especially the world’s impoverished communities – sustain themselves and their local economies. Trees reverse the impacts of land degradation and provide food, energy and income, helping communities to achieve long-term economic and environmental sustainability.” (quote from the Earth Day Network website)
For every dollar that is donated, a tree is planted, through the Earth Day Canopy Project.
These are just two ways to do something to make a difference on Earth Day, and there are plenty of Earth Day celebrations, events, and activities happening across the globe. A google search for your area is a great way to find an event near you.
