Make sure to mark your calendars for Earth Day April 22, 2021! The inaugural Earth Day was established on March 11th, 1970 in Ann Arbor Michigan by a biologist by the name of Barry Commoner¹. The premise of Earth Day was to put a voice to cutting back greenhouse gasses, plastic overload, and to start lobbying for our environment. With the development of solar panels, electric vehicles (EV), and wind energy it is a beginning to offset the damage done to the earth. Make sure to get out and do your part. Here are a few lists of organizations and cleanups near us. If you cannot attend these events, then create your own. Go outside with the kids and plan some flowers, clean up trash in the river, or collect water bottles at the ocean. Any activity no matter how big or small can make a difference. Also below is a link for the book “The Genius of Earth Day” if your interested in learning more.
