Happy Earth Day

On Earth Day 2019, enjoy the tonic of fresh air, contact with the soil, and companionship with nature! Walk through the woods in search of emerging wildflowers and green moss. Go outside, no matter the weather!

What is Earth Day?

Ever wondered how Earth Day started? This observance arose from an interest in gathering national support for environmental issues.

In 1970, San Francisco activist John McConnell and Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson separately asked Americans to join in a grassroots demonstration. McConnell chose the spring equinox (March 21, 1970) and Nelson chose April 22.

Millions of people participated, and today, Earth Day continues to be widely celebrated (mostly on April 22).

Common Earth Day activities include planting trees, cleaning up litter, or simply enjoying nature through hiking, gardening, or taking a stroll in a local park.

When is Earth Day?

Earth Day is always celebrated on April 22. It’s followed closely by Arbor Day, which falls on the last Friday in April.

Earth Day Quotes and Poetry

The thirsty earth soaks up the rain,
And drinks, and gapes for drink again.
The plants suck in the earth and are
With constant drinking fresh and fair.

–Abraham Cowley

The “green things growing” whisper me
Of many an earth-old mystery
–Eben Eugene Rexford

Summer, fall, winter, spring,
The seasons rotate as each brings
Its special beauty to this Earth of ours.
Winter’s snow and summer’s flowers;
Frozen rivers will flow come spring,
There is a renewal of everything
–Edna Frohock

While the bright radiant sun in centre glows,
The earth in annual motion round it goes;
At the same time on its own axis reels,
And gives us change of seasons as it wheels
–The 1793 Old Farmer’s Almanac

O Spring-time sweet! 
The whole Earth smiles, thy coming to greet

Earth Day 2018

Since conservation is a part of saving the earth and keeping species from going extinct, it seems we should refrain from eating sushi that uses blue fin tuna. They are at the brink of being an endangered species. One YouTuber claims that 80% of Atlantic and Pacific Blue Fin Tuna caught is consumed by the Japanese. If you look up a 2014 article by The Atlantic Magazine, it examines the issue.

Earth Day

Everyone can make a difference. Plant a tree, start a garden (even in a container) take a walk in the woods. Celebrate all that mother earth offers us every day!

What a beautiful world!

I hope Earth Day 2018 is greatest day in the history of forever. Happy Birthday, Earth. Smoke a tree. Don’t get wrapped around one :)

National earth day, may be

National Earth Day, today there may be many reasons why to celebrate. The one i adhere to most is that it reminds those who forget how precious is our planet and all on it. Planting trees, if u can, great way to replace so many we've list. If u can't plant, well at least appreciate all organic beings, you and those around u. Earth day is truly everyday, 24hrs a day, and beyond? Namaste.

Earth Day

Since i was little i have always planted many different things on earth day. It has trickled down to my family. We always plant veggies, trees and flowers. Our time here is so short and precious we all just have to do our part. And i will continue to do this with them and when i have grandkids them too.

Earth Day Every Day....

Thought you would like to be informed and invited to participate in an on going global clean up program called The One Piece Program. It's quite simple and easy, yet so effective. www.onepieceprogram.com

When i do my walking

When i do my walking orcycling, i take used plastic bag and a tweezer to collect all rubbish like plastic bottles, tin cans and plastic bags along my route. Dispose them rightfully into recycle bins. Always remember to 3R - reduce, reuse and recycle.

I love Earth Day. This is

I love Earth Day. This is 4-22-2015.
I remember my girls being little, now 33 and 29. It was a day of planting, collecting trash, making things from trash, using no energy sources of power in the home. We basically stayed out side almost all day. It was a celebration of our planet earth the cool place we live. Take them shopping for plants or succulents or cactus, or pick flowers, or plant a tree, an Evergreen or Fruit tree. I would ask them, what they liked about being a part of the universe, if they thought they had a responsibility? What would we do as humans to improve the earth for future generations of humans animals, and mammals and green life and food sources. We did this every year. It was fun. Now they have grown older. No one to share with.

let us all follow the three

let us all follow the three R's- reduce, reuse and recycle and give inspirations to the future generations of the world!!!

you said is really correct

you said is really correct dude!!!!!

so many fine ideas to celebrate this day....really, Earth Day is every day.

thank you for sharing.....

Isn't Earth Day a day a govt.

Isn't Earth Day a day a govt. ruse to get people to plant trees and be happy? I see no point in Earth Day. Why don't you go plant a tree on say June 16th for example? I see no sense.

I love our country.---It

I love our country.---It commits many sins but the Declaration of Independence defines it---government of the people, by the people, and for the people. That's the way I try to live here. I am sorry that you have experienced the sins (ruses) of the "people" who have failed to live up to what we should be.

I thought you planted trees

I thought you planted trees on arbor day

The earth herself does not

The earth herself does not care one way or the other about governments. To do something nice for the planet, ultimately does something nice for you and all those you care about because, for now, we all live here.

You said you see no sense in

You said you see no sense in Earth day? Well why don't you take you & your donkey asses in the barn to MARS so you can participate or not choose to participate in MARS NIGHT cuz we sure have more sense in earth than they do on MARS cuz sense win't grow at all on Mars.. not enough water, sense what and where I am getting @ - be glad we rejoice in earth day... maybe you would prefer an Earth Night in case you are a blood sucking vampire and afraid of the Sun... if so I hope a Lycan butt bites you,

Earth day, Every day

One good reason not to plant a tree in June is because it is too hot by then, best to plant in spring or fall.

Earth Day! How appropriate!

Earth Day! How appropriate! I love it!!

I was just a kid living in

I was just a kid living in the country when Earth Day started. Teacher suggested we go home and pick up trash along our roads. My brother dragged 3 black garbage bags out of the ditch across the road. I thought that was cool that he did that. I think it was more him that has made me not to be a litter bug.

I will spend the day in

I will spend the day in prayer and gratitude for all the beautiful things in the world. There is much goodness on this day, I will wait untill tomarrow to bitch.

Our entire community does

Our entire community does this on a weekend every May after the snow is gone.

We plan to take a walk about

We plan to take a walk about town (Merrill, Oregon) and just enjoy the community and maybe see if there is anything we can do to help improve the environment. Last year we painted community trash cans. This year we hope to plant flowers for seniors in the neighborhood. Maybe, vegetables along with flowers. Class of 2013: Have a Great Year!

The message of Earth Day

The message of Earth Day needs to be appreciated and more a part of our lives. Not just on April 22 but everyday. The young people are the future of this planet. Let's show them the right path. Peace out.

On this auspicious should be

On this auspicious should be made aware of Mother Earth and lead a 'Green Life' for a
peaceful Tomorrow.It is possible only by following one's own tradition & Culture

I miss the earth the way it

I miss the earth the way it used to be, but that was when I lived in the country. Fresh grown food, fields of wheat and essential grains. Somehow it is just not the same. For earth day I will plant my seeds not pre sprouted plants, this year I want to use my own seeds to create a natural, organic garden of herbs, flowers and food. Earth day is when I will be conscious of my own footprint and recycle or donate many of my things that are cluttering up the yard and my house house. Collecting garbage on a few vacant lots would also be a task for me to do today. Happy Earth Day. 2013
