Earth Day Events April 22nd-26th

Earth Day

Happy Earth Day!

Today we celebrate one of the greatest gifts, our planet! We must all do our part to keep out planet in good shape. The little things can make a big impact and they can be as simple as picking up after yourself at parks, beaches, or just anywhere. Recycling items in designated recepticales and reuse scrapes and materials when crafting. Turning off electronics when not in use and lights when you leave a room. One of the easiest ways to save water is to turn off the faucet when brushing your teeth! All of these examples can make a positive impact on our environment.

My family is a very outdoors family so we always try to do our part and not leave waste/trash behind. My kids are able to enjoy so much here in Southern California whether it’s the beach, a nature center, a park or the mountains. In helping to keep these areas clean we are helping to preseve them for others to enjoy. Along with the tips above there are some great events going on in celebration of Earth Day!
