Celebrating 40 Years of Earth Day

Earth Day is a day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment. It is the largest, most widely celebrated international environmental event. People all over the world celebrate our efforts to protect plants and animals and to clean up the world we live in. Earth Day is celebrated on April 22, 2010, but Who’s Green? wants every day to be Earth Day so we have  provided a few ways you can make a difference.

*   Think Globally, Act Locally- Support your local businesses when you have a choice.
*   Walk or ride a bicycle to work, school, the park, or the store. This is a great way to help reduce the pollution created by cars, trucks, buses, trains, and airplanes.
*   Plant trees. Trees help keep the air clean.
*   Do not litter. Pick up litter on the sidewalk, street, beach, or riverbank. This will help keep the environment free of contaminants.
*   Create a compost pile for food scraps and plant waste from the garden. This is a good way to cut down on the amount of trash that goes into a landfill. As a bonus, compost helps create rich soil for   gardening.
*   Recycle! Recycling is an important part of keeping Earth clean. It is very easy to do. By giving old things a new life we put less pressure on important resources all of us will need in the future to survive.
*   Take your reusable bag to the grocery store. Vow to never use the plastic ones again!

We want you to be the solution. Cultivate a sustainable future!

Happy Earth Day!
