Earth Day is traditionally celebrated as a day to raise awareness about the health and preservation of our planet. Earth day is a day to celebrate nature and think about how we can each do our part to make this world a more sustainable place to live. Let’s celebrate Earth Day every day!
Why we limit our celebration of the Earth to only one day of the year makes no sense to me. Making this world a greener and more sustainable place to live cannot be completed in a single day. We each need to do our part 365/24/7!
