Earth Day and Arbor Day are this coming week. So I thought we all needed to go outside, plant a tree (or bush, like us) and enjoy the fresh air. In the United States, you can find the best tree to plant in your "neck of the woods" by going through your county's Extension Service.
Don't have the space to plant a tree right now? Did you know that for just $1, you can plant a new tree in one of America's national forests?
But don't stop there! Another positive step you can take is to recycle.
I came upon this fabulous site, called earth911. Not only are they a directory for the usual recycled materials, but you can find where to get rid of other materials safety in your neighborhood, such as paint and computers.
Considering what to do this Sunday for Earth Day? Have a picnic in the park. The Nature Conservancy is trying to set a Guinness record for the world's largest picnic. They and their partners worldwide are hosting Picnic for the Planet. Join in!
