10 things you can do to celebrate earth day 2017

Earth Day is the largest civic observance in the world.

"The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement. The passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed. Twenty years later, Earth Day went global, mobilizing 200 million people in 141 countries and lifting environmental issues onto the world stage. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world." -- Earth Day Network

This year, the Earth Day Network has chosen "Environment and Climate Literacy" as their 2017 campaign. There are many ways you can lend your voice and your time to the cause of raising awareness, so here are 10 things you can do now to celebrate Earth Day -- planting gardens and trees, getting your kids involved in the kitchen, buying sustainable seafood, ditching the car for a day, considering your food waste and more!
