The First Earth Day

The first recognized Earth Day was April 22, 1970. It had various participants in over 2,000 colleges and universities and around 10,000 primary and secondary schools. As well, there were numerous communities in America that supported the cause. What was amazing is that over 20 million people partook in peaceful demonstrations that supported environmental improvement. Some of the demonstrations included the Endangered Species Act, the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act.

Earth Day Projects | Earth Day Ideas

You don’t have to do something momentous for Earth Day celebration. Even the smallest of Earth Day projects can make an impact on our world. Just imagine if everyone did something to help the earth it would make a huge difference.

Here are some Earth Day ideas to get you started:

  • Plant a tree
  • Buy only fair trade, organic and sustainable products
  • Celebrate Earth Day with your children, they are the future
  • Plant a garden; if you are limited in space try a vertical garden
  • Upcycle, reuse or convert old materials & products into something new
  • Use earth friendly cleaners that are not toxic for you or the environment
  • Conserve on water such as turning off the faucet when you brush your teeth
  • Remodel your home using sustainable, energy efficient and “green” products
  • Buy food locally and in bulk, it can save up to 4.6 pounds of trash per person per day
  • Start a recycling bin; get your kids involved to show them the importance of recycling

Earth Day Celebration on Amazon or Ebay

Even Amazon and eBay has some wonderful Earth Day products this year. If you have decided to do a large Earth Day project then Amazon or eBay could save you quite a bit on expenses.
