How to Celebrate Earth Day 2021
Protecting our changing climate and environments is more important than ever, but so is enjoying and celebrating them. Other than being essential for all of our lives, and every life-form on the planet, our climate and environments comprising the Earth also need to be remembered for all the beauty, fun, comfort and entertainment they give.
So as Earth Day, April 22nd, nears now is a great time to enjoy and celebrate our great Earth. In this spirit, I wanted to share some of the best ways I know and have found to celebrate the Earth now, later and on actual Earth day.
