Things you can do to celebrate Earth Day!

Earth Day has grown in popularity since the 1970′s. Nowadays many communities and countries celebrate “Earth Week” and “Earth Awareness Month”. It was created to bring up environmental issues, as well as urge support for environmental protection.

Earth Day Anthem by Abhay K (Ode to Joy Melody)
Joyful joyful we adore our Earth in all its wonderment

Simple gifts of nature that all join into a paradise
Now we must resolve to protect her
Show her our love throughout all time
With our gentle hand and touch
We make our home a newborn world
Now we must resolve to protect her
Show her our love throughout all time
With our gentle hand and touch

We make our home a newborn world

There are lots of activities you can do to help celebrate Earth Day!

For a few, all you need is your phone. If went outside and took a total of two selfies with nature, you could celebrate Earth Day with three different organizations! NASA, ICF International, and The Nature Conservancy all want to see you nature selfies. Using three different hashtags, you could help plant trees, create a mosaic image of Earth, and show your support. Need some ideas? Take a picture with your favorite four legged friend, your favorite flower, or maybe your “secret happy place outside”.
