For over 40 years, Earth Day, April 22, has inspired and mobilized individuals and organizations worldwide to demonstrate their commitment to environmental protection and sustainability.
Earth Day is becoming one of the most important hallmarks in the world of conservation and recycling. It carries with it powerful connotations of ecological responsibility and taking ownership of our planet. After all, it is the only Earth that we have, and taking steps to reduce the impact that you and your fellow man have on it is nothing short of revolutionary.
Earth Day gives people who have not taken part in recycling the opportunity to make changes to their lives and their community that they will cherish for a lifetime. Many organized groups have adopted a pay as you throw program in their local communities.
You can help celebrate earth day this year by attending a national or community-recycling event. This will help support all of the volunteers and organizers to show them that you really care. If you don’t have an event scheduled in your community this earth day April 22nd, then you can organize one yourself. Be sure to have the correct recycling containers and recycling bins ordered and on hand ahead of time.
With Earth Day 2011 and Earth Day 2012, there are a great number of amazing events planned all around the world – communities’ band together to help each other and make some positive strides toward protecting the environment. There are recycling drives, teach-ins, and rallies that are set to go throughout the United States, and you have the opportunity to be a part of that.
