Earth Day began on April 22, 1970 and has been an important day ever since.  It's a day to reflect on our planet, our environment and what we can do to help keep them healthy.

 

What Did the first Earth Day Accomplish? 

  • The Environmental Protection Agency was established later in 1970.
     
  • The tough Clean Air Act of 1970 was passed with only a handful of dissenting votes in both Houses of Congress.
     
  • The Federal Occupational Health and Safety Act aimed at "in-plant pollution" was passed by a coalition of labor and environmental groups.
     
  • Within the next three years, such landmarks as the Clean Water Act, the Endangered Species Act, and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act were passed.

 


We have a coloring page for you to share with your kids (bird themed of course) and some craft ideas to celebrate Earth Day!

Make a cute handprint wreath!  Or a pinwheel! (Planning to do both at my house!) We are also going to be planting some sunflower seeds in our backyard!


AND, did I mention we have a great Earth Day Giveaway from our friends at Earth Fare Louisville?

They have put together a reusable Earth Fare Grocery Bag filled with Earth Friendly cleaning products, snack foods, lunchbox essentials and children’s wellness products (oral and body care).

 As always, everything is all-natural and great quality!
