Earth Day Gifts / February 23, 2019 / Cecelia Montgomery
The entire reason that Earth Day has been set aside as a holiday is to celebrate the wonderful provisions of this planet and to remind ourselves that we shouldn t abuse it in our daily lives. By promoting green tasks and objects we are conserving energy and helping to save and restore the earth. Therefore participating in green holiday crafts can really show our dedication to helping keep the earth beautiful and productive for hundreds of thousands of years to come. Using recycled goods to create a piece of art is a great way to partake of the Earth Day theme especially for school children.

Nelson presented his Earth Day idea to other government officials and news organizations.
