Happy Earth Day

What to do and where to go to celebrate the Earth on April 22

| April 19, 2007

On April 22, people worldwide will come together to show their support for the environment. If you're looking for ways to celebrate Earth Day, there's plenty of information on the internet about where and how to get involved.

One of the best places to start is Earthday.net, the official website of the Earth Day Network. The site offers up-to-date news, resources, and information on the state of the environment. The site's event search window makes it easy for the eco-minded to find an Earth Day activity anywhere in the world and links to film screenings, bike rides, and music festivals like the Green Apple Music and Arts Festival in Chicago, San Francisco, and New York City.

The US government might not have a great reputation when it comes to environmentalism, but it does earn props for providing helpful information on Earth Day. The Environmental Protection Agency's Earth Day website offers practical tips on how to green your home, your community, your school, and your workplace. The site also lists events and volunteer opportunities around the country, so people won't have to burn up fossil fuels traveling far to participate.

For a 'comprehensive list of Earth Day events,' ?EnviroLink has a page dedicated to the holiday, including a history of the event and a guide for organizers. The Sierra Club is a good resource, too, providing environmental facts and 'every day solutions,' with inspiring photos of how average Joes and Janes are doing their part to help the Earth. The website encourages people to make a commitment to celebrating the Earth, not just on Earth Day but every day.
