Celebrate Earth Day 50 at Home with Stuff Everyone Will Love
It is hard to believe that we've been celebrating Earth Day for 50 years. Firstly, because, our planet and its species seem to be in more jeopardy than ever, and secondly, because, well - - 50 years! Earth Day 2020 is Wednesday, April 22.
It has always been about education, but also about taking action and since our actions are being somewhat limited by the recent coronavirus situation, I thought I would share information regarding virtual and personal ways to celebrate the event.
There is no shortage of activities to explore with major organizations going digital this year for this big 50th-anniversary celebration of Earth Day.
