Earth Day is an annual event that is celebrated on the 22nd of April. The event was first celebrated in 1970 and it serves to show support for environment conservation.
With just a few days remaining to Earth Day, many of you are wondering about engaging ways you can celebrate this important holiday. Below are several interesting and fun ideas on how to celebrate Earth Day.
1. GET SOME FRESH AIR.
Many people will often spend Earth Day indoors. This year most of you will probably be watching the signing of the Paris Agreement by over 120 countries on television. One of the best ways to enjoy this holiday is to get in touch with the planet being celebrated. You can opt for nature trail walks, hikes, bicycle rides seeing the local natural wonders of this world.
You will probably come across some breathtaking features in your own backyard that you have never known of. Enjoying the cool breezes and warm sun are simple fun ways of appreciating the environment. A day spent in the elements will remind you of the importance of Earth Day.
2. ORGANIZE A FUN PICNIC.
Picnics are one of those common activities for holidays that are always fun for adults as well as children. Most neighborhoods have recreational amenities such as community parks and green spaces. Earth Day is a good day to make full use of these amenities. A picnic can also involve several families in the neighborhood.
Moreover, you can crank things up by organizing a mass picnic with all the residents in your neighborhood. Such a picnic on Earth Day would be a good platform to meet new neighbors, catch up with friends and basically enjoy tranquil conversations in the open. It would also be a good time to share meals and enjoy diverse recipes from the members of your community.
3. PLAN AN EARTH DAY PARTY.
Earth Day parties can be conducted in your backyard or even in open social amenities within the neighborhood. Your creativity is your limit here. A good Earth Day party should involve all members of your community and a spirit of sharing should be encouraged.
An environmentally friendly lifestyle is about more than recycling, conservation and clean ups. It is also about caring for the needs of our fellow humans. The party can be a place to have fun while discussing the environmental issues facing your community. A pooling of ideas and resources can be done to seek ways of bettering the environment you live in.
4. ATTEND AN EARTH DAY EVENT.
This is one of the more proactive ways to celebrate Earth Day. Most areas will have their own official Earth Day celebrations where residents can volunteer or engage in many fun activities related to environmental conservation.
Such activities may include local area clean-ups, community development activities, Earth Day fairs and tree planting sessions. You get to meet and interact with new people in your town, test eco-friendly products and learn a lot about the development facing our planet.
The need to protect our planet is more important than ever today. With high pollution rates and global warming, it is important to embrace environmentally conscious living and have some fun while at it.
