I used to ♥ Earth Day. It meant that you got to leave school to plant trees and draw pictures of the Earth with sidewalk chalk in downtown. Paint trash cans to be placed around the city. Have a mini parade with all the other classrooms on the playground with your faces painted. I miss being a kid sometimes!
As adults we can still celebrate Earth Day - my plan?
Grilling out with some friends. I know, it doesn't sound eco-friendly, but we are using Cowboy Charcoal, which is! You can get it at places like Whole Foods and it's actually quite great.
What are you doing to celebrate? Taking shorter showers? Sitting around with the lights off? Just be sure to enjoy it, we only have ONE Earth!
