Earth Day Tips: Freebies & Deals
When is Earth Day? Earth Day is April 22. Here’s a tip, the first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970. Earth Day was first started in the US, but became recognized worldwide by 1990. And, now it has evolved into Earth Week! During this celebration, people of all ages, races and backgrounds come together for a common good. Earth Day Activities include picking up trash and garbage, planting trees, cleaning up coral reefs, and planning for a better future for our planet. Earth Day was started by Senator Gaylord Nelson, who happens to be from the same tiny town in Wisconsin that I’m from! It started as an environmental teach-in. In other words, a day to learn about how to take better care of the earth. Please check back as we update our big list of Earth Day freebies for 2019!
