Celebrating Earth Day: What YOU Can Do!

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

This Earth Day I am reflecting on the negative human impact on our planet. Mother Earth is resilient, but how much more can she take? Oil spills, landfills overflowing with non-biodegradable debris, air and water pollution are killing us and our Earth. We can save our environment if we each made a conscious effort to reduce, reuse, recycle as much as we can. Here are some Earth Day events and activities you can participate in to show your support for planet Earth:

Make a pledge at earthday.org and be counted among the Billion Acts of Green. Then share your act of green on Facebook and Twitter. While you are there check the EVENTS tab for Earth Day celebrations in your area.

The Cloth Diaper Change is a worldwide event aiming to set the world record for the most cloth diapers changed simultaneously. Grab your diaper bag, your kid(s) and go make a statement about reusable diapers. Find a location near you.

Celebrate Earth Day with your little one(s) with a limited edition “Life is a Picnic” Kit. Profits from the sale of the kit will be donated to Healthy Child Healthy World!

Support the new Mercury and Air Toxics Standards rule proposed by the EPA by signing this petition on the Environmental Defense Fund.

Our earth has & continues to go through so much! I think the storms we're having is proof that she's mad!

What a very important topic to focus on. I am so worried about our environment and hope everyone and every country will start paying closer attention.

The problem with people is that they treat the earth like they treat their own bodies...

Great ideas, thanks!

Cloth diapers, yay! We've used mainly cloth since the Babby got big enough. And then for a while we used disposables because the Babby had an unidentified rash that was later diagnosed as an allergy to our detergent (which she developed - we'd been using the same detergent since she was born).
