Celebrate Earth Day!
Earth Day Network calls on us to think of Earth Day as "a day of action and community," Rogers says. Start by checking out earthday.net, which posts thousands of activities around the country and invites organizers to upload info on their events, no matter how small. To involve your neighborhood or school:
- Beautify your schoolyard or block by planting a tree. Kids love digging in the dirt and will take pride in watching the tree grow.
- Organize a plant sale, picking up flats of pretty springtime flowers -- such as pansies or petunias -- and selling them at a profit. Give the proceeds to an environmental cause.
