What is the History of Earth Day?
Earth Day is a very special day specifically designed for all of us to think about earth issues . It is not only a special day in the town where we live, but a day that the whole world participates in! Often there are celebrations, events or campaigns that concern us with earth matters.
Some towns have Earth Day celebrations, and some people and groups participate in Earth Day projects such as: Planetpals: The World Recycles Project, Funding Factory Recycle exchange program or the Earth Day Groceries Project . (For more)
You can participate in one of the existing projects, or start one of your own. Perhaps a small project with your mom or dad such as planting a tree, or a large project with your classroom or neighborhood friends such as a park clean up. The possibilities are endless. Try to think of something you would like to do-you too, can make a difference!
