Ways to Celebrate Earth Day
April 22, 2021
There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrain of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after the winter.
-Rachel Carson
Each year Earth Day is celebrated on April 22. NOAA (the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the US Department of Commerce) offers Ten Simple Things You Can Do to Help Protect the Earth”:

  1. Reduce, reuse, and recycle. Cut down on what you throw away...
  2. Volunteer. Volunteer for cleanups in your community...
  3. Educate. When you further your own education, you can help others understand the importance and value of our natural resources.
  4. Conserve water. The less water you use, the less runoff and wastewater that eventually end up in the ocean.
  5. Choose sustainable. Learn how to make smart seafood choices at www.fishwatch.gov.
  6. Shop wisely. Buy less plastic and bring a reusable shopping bag.
  7. Use long-lasting light bulbs. Energy efficient light bulbs reduce greenhouse gas emissions...
  8. Plant a tree. Trees provide food and oxygen. They help save energy, clean the air, and help combat climate change.
  9. Don't send chemicals into our waterways. Choose non-toxic chemicals in the home and office.
  10. Bike more. Drive less.

Vicki Bohling-Phillipi, in an article that provides the foundation for an Out of the Box Training Kit, “Using the Power of Nature to Help Children Heal" wrote:
“Our classrooms and homes are often filled with children who are hurting in one way or another and need the healing influence that a close, personal connection with nature can provide.”
