Ways to celebrate the planet from home

Earth Day will be here soon (April 22), and it’s time to celebrate the planet. But for many, the ongoing pandemic means that in-person group activities may not be practical or even possible. So while celebrating the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we’ll celebrate the very first Digital Earth Day too. Here are a few fun “close to home” activities you can do individually or with your children to honor our amazing Earth.

 

did_you_know2Earth Day began in 1970, when Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson founded it after a devastating oil spill off the California coast. At the first Earth Day, 20 million Americans, or 10% of the country’s population at that time, participated in events related to environmental science. Today Earth Day is recognized in more than 193 countries.

 

How will you celebrate digital Earth Day this year? Our readers would love to know. Don’t forget to take pictures and post them on social media using the hashtag #EarthDay2020

And remember, if you’re not a Norwex Movement member, we’d love for you to join us today! Together, we’re learning to reduce harmful chemicals in our homes through small, conscious choices that help our families and our world.

I plan on walking and picking up trash in the ditches along the rural road I live on. Bonus: some of this will be recyclable!

every earth day i make a new green resolution – last year, i completely stopped grabbing plastic bags for produce in the market (and i buy a lot!) but, i’ve collected many net produce bags and i’ve stuck to my ‘pledge’ . . . this year’s goal is to pay greater attention to packaging and make conscious choices . . . example: at costco one brand of olive oil came in a plastic bottle while another in glass – i chose the glass and considered the small cost difference a ‘donation’ to the planet . . . : )

Karen, thanks so much for sharing! We love your idea of a green resolution, which helps protect the planet all year long, not to mention your “donation to the planet.” Kudos!
