50 years ago, the first Earth Day was celebrated with rallies and parades that launched a wave of action, including the passage of landmark environmental laws. Now, due to the spread of COVID-19 and social distancing restrictions, millions worldwide are limited to their homes and unable to go outdoors. However, there are still simple and easy actions you can take that recognize this monumental holiday while keeping yourself safe and healthy.
Complete a nature-inspired project
Look for creative ways you can liven up your home and embrace nature. If you have a backyard or outdoor space, consider planting something, as you can order gardening supplies or plants online. Plant a tree, build a birdfeeder or a composite bin. You can do these activities yourself, or with your family, without having to leave your house.
The internet and documentaries are great resources to get educated about all aspects of Earth Day. Learn about the importance of pollinators, the science behind climate change and how to live sustainably. Discover how small changes can have a big impact on the future of Earth.
Getting together with your community may not be an option, but your voice can still be heard through social media. Post or share informational videos on your channels or participate in an #EarthDayChallenge and tag your friends, encouraging them to do the same.
The present circumstances may have limited public events or large gatherings, but you still have the opportunity to drive action. For years, this holiday has helped protect and restore our planet, and 2020 is no different. Read more about Earth Day here.
