Earth Day Gifts / February 23, 2019 / Cristina Pennington
Providing children with holiday related crafts especially for lesser known or observed holidays like Earth Day can really help them to get a sense of what the day should mean to them and at a time when lack of natural resources and damage to the environment are such strong topics Earth Day is a great place to start implementing such educational projects and crafts. What is Earth Day? While you have probably heard the words "Earth Day" did you know there are two observations of Earth Day? The United Nations celebrates on the equinox; hundreds of countries celebrate Earth Day annually on April 22nd.
Manufacturers looked at ways to reduce toxic by-products and appear environmentally responsible to their customers. Their marketing campaigns highlighted eco-friendly actions like reducing environmental waste. Resurgence Even with progressive responsibility people did not celebrate Earth Day as they had in the beginning year. Celebrations were still held but they weren t as widely attended or announced. In 1990 the original Earth Day coordinator Dennis Hayes organized a worldwide Earth Day. For the thirtieth anniversary of Earth Day Hayes planned for a global celebration with participation from countries around the world.
It is a relationship promoting holiday that can be celebrated by making a difference. Organizing an event changing a habit or launching a community garden can all be on the agenda of celebrating Earth Day. Bringing people together with mutual interests is typical of the earth element. Protecting the environment is now a priority among the many issues of global concerns. On a small scale we can look at the microcosm of family life with genuine goals of adjusting bad habits toward better practices in the usage of measurable resources. Our carbon footprint is not just an abstract concept but a very real and measurable entity.
