Earth Day Block Cleanup Party!!

Earth Day is coming up on Friday, April 22nd.  Are you looking for ways to help?
Check out B Kind 2 Earth Day on Facebook.  They have all kinds of ideas for ways to join in, click the 'Great Resources' link on the left-hand side of their page.  You can also take the pledge to do something kind for the Earth on Earth Day.  Click on the 'Your State' link on their page and fill out the form.  Then share your own idea and post it on their wall.

My family's pledge for Earth Day is to cleanup our neighborhood!

We live on a somewhat busy street, and there is constant trash that gets blown or thrown onto our front lawn.  We're going to start with our yard and then move around the block... and hopefully inspire some of our neighbors to come out and join us.

Cleaning up the Neighborhood
by my 5 yr. old

Each person, young or old, can take part on Earth Day.  And it doesn't have to be something big, every little bit helps.  Some other ideas on how you can help:
  • Plant a tree
  • Start a garden
  • Build a birdhouse
  • Walk instead of drive
  • Shorten your shower time
  • Take reusable bags to the store
  • Cleanup your own neighborhood or local park
So how will you help this Earth Day?  Do you already have plans to help, if not have you hopefully become inspired to join in?

We only have one Earth... let's preserve it for future generations!

Well this is much less glamorous than cleaning up our neighborhood but for Earth Day this year I am {finally} assembling our composter. It's all a step in the right direction, right!?!
