Earth Day

It doesn't matter if you think the Earth is round or flat and it doesn’t matter if you think humans are causing global warming or the Earth is just going through a cycle. What does matter is we are along for the ride and EVERYONE has to do something to keep the ride going.


Earth Day is celebrated every year on April 22nd to promote environmental protection and raise awareness about the current state of our planet. It is a day to reflect on our impact on the environment and to take action towards creating a sustainable future for ourselves and future generations. Here are some important things to know about Earth Day:



History of Earth Day

The first Earth Day was celebrated in 1970 when millions of people across the United States came together to protest against environmental degradation and call for increased protection of the environment. The event was organized by Senator Gaylord Nelson, who wanted to raise awareness about environmental issues and encourage people to take action. Since then, Earth Day has become a global movement, with events and activities taking place in over 190 countries.


Goals of Earth Day

The main goal of Earth Day is to raise awareness about environmental issues and promote environmental protection. Some of the key issues that Earth Day aims to address include climate change, pollution, deforestation, and loss of biodiversity. Earth Day also seeks to encourage individuals and communities to take action towards creating a sustainable future, whether that means reducing their carbon footprint, planting trees, or advocating for policy changes.


Celebrating Earth Day

There are many ways to celebrate Earth Day, both individually and as a community. Some ideas include:

  1. Plant a tree - Trees are essential for the health of our planet, as they absorb carbon dioxide and provide oxygen. Planting a tree is a great way to celebrate Earth Day and contribute to the health of our environment.

  2. Clean up litter - Pollution is a major issue for our planet, and litter is a big part of that problem. Take some time on Earth Day to clean up litter in your local area, whether that means picking up trash on a beach or in a park.

  3. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - One of the easiest ways to contribute to saving our planet is by reducing waste. Reduce the amount of waste you produce by choosing reusable products such as water bottles, bags, and containers. Make sure to recycle items that can be recycled, such as paper, plastic, and glass. Also, consider composting your food waste to reduce landfill waste.

  4. Reduce Air Pollution - Reduce vehicle use: Transportation is a major contributor to air pollution, especially in urban areas. By reducing vehicle use, such as walking, cycling, or using public transportation, we can significantly reduce emissions.

  5. Support environmental organizations - There are many organizations that work to protect the environment, such as the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, World Wildlife Fund, the Sierra Club, and Greenpeace. Consider donating to one of these organizations or volunteering your time to support their work.


Earth Day is an important opportunity to reflect on our impact on the environment and take action towards creating a sustainable future. Whether you plant a tree, clean up litter, or reduce your carbon footprint, there are many ways to celebrate Earth Day and contribute to the health of our planet. Let's all work together to create a more sustainable future for ourselves and future generations.
