5 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day

5 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day copyEarth Day is April 22nd and we make it a point to make this day very special. Aside from regular things, we do to try and keep our Earth lovely by being Eco-friendly.We try to learn new things to do each year.

It’s important to celebrate Earth day to my family because as I mentioned before, my grandfathers were field workers and my grandmother believed in herbal remedies. They taught us as kids that we have to love our Earth to receive it’s wonderful gifts—fruits, vegetables, and herbs. It’s important to show love to the wonderful planet we call home!

This year the kids understand a little more about the importance of conserving energy and recycling but I feel they need to know ways to love our Earth outdoors too. We’ve made it our goal for Earth Day this year to go outdoors more!

We encourage you to love our Earth! Here are 5 ways to celebrate EARTH day with your kids!

    My kids know we don't litter it hurts the Earth! We make it a game to pick up any "safe" trash they can pick up when we are in our backyard. It's amazing the amount of things the wind piles up. safe trash for us is paper that doesn't look dirty, plastics, cans. I do this with the kids to make sure it's ok to pick up or else I step in.Have a designated reusable bag to pick up trash!
  • Reusable vs Plastic 4 of 5

    Our markets are doing their part by asking us to bring in our reusuable grocery bag but this goes for home as well. Purchase a reusuable bag for all your needs. The kids uses their to carry their toys to the backyard and even to the park.
