April 22 is Earth Day

Wednesday, April 22 is Earth Day. This is an annual event, that is now celebrated worldwide, and demonstrates support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970 in the US, and is now global and celebrated in over 192 countries every year.

Earth day aims to educate people on environmental issues, so they can understand their responsibilities on behalf of the planet. It helps raise awareness on the impact that we have on the environment. It also gives people ideas on what they can do about it, such as going green. Some ideas are recycling and less energy consumption. Also less paper consumption, and taking public transportation are other things people can do to help the environment.

This year marks the 45th anniversary of Earth Day. And it is more important now than ever, as climate changes are becoming more apparent and a new understanding of the consequences our actions are having on the Earth and environment. Come see what others are doing for our planet-

Speaking of protecting the earth, did you know that according to a recent study conducted for the Ad Council, 52% of Americans don’t know which items can be recycled in the bathroom. And only 10% of Americans have a recycling bin in their bathroom, compared to the 45% who have them in the kitchen. Whether it’s hairspray, leave-in conditioner or dry shampoo, many of your favorite beauty products and packaging can take on another life through recycling. For example, your shampoo bottle could be recycled into a hairbrush, or you might find a great new dress made from the recycled plastic of your favorite bottle of lotion.
