Tomorrow, April 22 is Earth Day!
What is Earth day, you may ask?
In 1970, activists started “Earth Day” as a day dedicated to protecting and appreciating the environment. It was started among college students and is set in a window between spring break and the end of spring semester to maximize student involvement. What started as a relatively small college student movement became a global phenomenon in the 1990s, spurring millions of people from 141 countries to celebrate as citizens of the world. Now it is celebrated annually on the 22nd of April and is widely recognized as a day to appreciate nature and to focus on conservation efforts.
So how can we celebrate Earth Day in Chapel Hill?
There are many ways!
You may feel most comfortable celebrating on your own. Great! Spring is a great time to plant many kinds of flowers. Support your honey bees by planting flowers bees love. Notice how much water you are using in a day and consider ways to conserve! Or keep tabs on the amount of trash accumulating in your trashcan this week and think about ways to reduce your carbon footprint that way!

Happy Earth Day!
