The Nature Conservancy has put out a request to host a Picnic for the Planet. The goal is to break the record for the most picnics held celebrating Earth Day. You have a couple of options, either host one and have it put on the map, or donate to a picnic. To find a picnic to join, the map is ready for you to search.

Need Ideas for recipes, the Conservancy site has a list of great ideas offered by the Cooking Channel. The Big Cheese chef, Jason Sobocinski is offering up a challenge to those who are looking for ways to contribute. Chef Sobocinski is raising funds to help support Earth Day. You can watch his video here.

You can make Earth Day a daily event simply by recycling, reusing, and re-purposing the plastic, cardboard, tin cans, and other items that you normally toss into the trash bin. Recycle centers will take nearly 99 percent of the items you purchase and keep it out of the trash dumps.

Electronics may be a bit more difficult, but you can find someone who will be more than happy to help you get rid of them. Most can be taken apart and re-purposed or recycled. Plastic and aluminum parts are recyclable. Earth911 is a great resource for ideas and places to unload your no longer needed items.

What are your plans?

      The best share I can give to earth is the attitude of patronizing what's available and focusing on things that can lessen energy-consumption, I think we all are doing this already.

      My little bag business with resources from scratch is so much I can dream for and a thing I can be proud of proving to the world the possibilities of making big things from small. A very green hub Connie, mother earth will thank you. Voted up and across the board except funny. Thank you!
