Can we just call it Playful Planet Day?!  (cheesy grin here)

There are so many mentions of Earth Day across Twitter and Facebook and All The Places on Earth Day. We thought we’d share just a few favorite links for FUN:

This guy (and his tiny Winnie the Pooh) is something else. Check out what he did.

Earth Day 2015Apr. 15th

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!

This call to action provides people with simple ways to help and make a difference by signing a climate petition, supporting environmental education, or make a mark on reducing energy consumption…

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.

Peace.
