Founded by Senator Gaylord Nelson in 1970, Earth Day is celebrated on April 22 in more than 175 countries. Some people celebrate Earth Week running from April 16 to April 22. I personally think every day should be Earth Day and I think a lot of people feel that way. When I am at the park or on a nature hike with my children we pick up as much trash as we can. It makes us sad that people just throw trash everywhere.
Both of my girls are doing things in school to celebrate Earth Day. My oldest is spending the day cleaning up the outdoor science lab. They are going to plant tree's there. My youngest has talked her entire Kindergarten class into skipping recess and instead walking the neighborhood to pick up trash. She is proud of herself for talking them all into it. I plan on picking up trash in the wooded area close to our house. Of course to clean it all out I will need a dump truck. There are tires, pop bottles and even a big pleather chair. I might need a little help with that one.
If everyone in the world would pick up just one piece of trash today, it will be a successful Earth Day in my book. So help out Mother Earth and reach down to pick up some trash.
