Earth Day Ideas!

The first Earth Day helped inspire the United States Environmental Protection Agency and the passage of the Clean Air, Clean Water, and Endangered Species acts. Each year, April 22 marks the celebration of Earth Day, which is now observed around the world.
Fun Facts About Earth Day
  • Earth Day Networks estimates that 500 million people from 4,500 organizations in 180 countries will participate in Earth Day events during the month of April.
  • Earth Day is big with schools. On many school calendars, it is the third most activity-inspiring holiday, after Christmas and Halloween.
  • Companies have even gotten into Earth Day. Last year, office supply store Staples introduced office paper made entirely without new trees.
  • As part of the celebration, some communities make Earth Day a "Car-Free Day."

In celebration of Earth Day here are some great things to do with your families!
