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
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.
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.
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.
