Today is a day to celebrate our planet and to reflect on what is going on with Earth. Climate change is far from many people’s and leader’s priorities right now, and unfortunately, it continues to effect humanity, animals and eco-systems everyday and at an alarming rate.
This the 22nd day of April, recognized as Earth Day, was founded by Senator Gaylord Nelson in 1970 to promote ecology and respect for life on the planet as well as to encourage awareness of the growing problems of air, water and soil pollution.
Today my family and I will spend the day planting edible plants in our garden, taking a nature walk and practicing gratitude for the beauty Mother Earth is providing us. What are you doing to celebrate Earth Day?
Here you can learn more what you can do for your part.
