Did you know that today is Earth Day? Take some time to think about what you can do to improve the earth even in small ways. Here are some great links and posts about Earth Day. Great reading and great ideas for what you can do to make a difference in your household and community.

What is Earth Day

Ever wondered how Earth Day started? This observance arose from an interest in gathering national support for environmental issues. In 1970, San Francisco activist John McConnell and Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson separately asked Americans to join in a grassroots demonstration. Read more here…

    Happy Earth Day to you too! Being a green living blogger and family, Earth Day is one of our favorite days! I have been celebrating it ever since I was in high school and was a member of our environmental club in high school!

  3. Very cool! I’ve always loved Earth Day, since I was born and raised in Vermont. But I don’t think I ever even thought about how it was started – And now I know! Thanks Jenn!

  4. I sure wish that South Africa was more Eartaware. In the bigger cities you see a bit more focus on enc=vironment- though not nearly enough. But in the outer areas and the townships, the landscapes are shockingly littered with trash and debris…even getting gas people will simply roll their windows down and chuck out their trash…steps awat from a bin…it really is a problem and there is not notable focus to change it…

    Thx for the eco-friendly kids movie ideas. I love watching these types of cartoon movies. But am I the only one who thinks mother nature network left out The Lorax?

    I loved the enchanted forests. Thank you for sharing that!

    Love the earth day – it gives so many opportunities to lern about eco friendly businesses

  12. I was in 5th grade when the first Earth day took place. Amazing that it has lasted all this time!

  13. This is such a worthy celebration and really should have it more than once a year but it is a good start. We’ve been celebrating for a long time now.

  14. Happy Earth Day! As for me, I re-use paper bags when going to the market/grocery until it gets worn out. Another thing that I do is I use unleaded gasoline on my car, however, I try to use public transportation or WALK (mindfully) whenever possible.

    Every small contribution counts and if every single person does one helpful thing for our planet, multiply that by billions = HUGE DIFFERENCE.

    great post! I especially liked reading about the history of Earth Day. It would be great if it was a National holiday where we could all have the day to do environmental service projects

    I’d love to get more involved in Earth Day festivities next year, thanks for sharing!
