Earth Day inspiration for kids in Vail ColoradoBe More Sustainable This Earth Day  

Did you know that the first Earth Day was on April 22, 1970, and led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency? Earth Day originally started to highlight the importance of caring for the environment and accepting responsibility for the nation's resources. The idea is that, when we come together, the impact can be monumental. Going green by making small changes adds up to making a big difference. Earth Day is this upcoming Monday, April 22. In honor of this annual event, we have put together a few tips for how you can enjoy and participate in this important day (Source: EarthDay.org).

What You Can Do

  • Go green. Pick one small thing that you can do to enhance the natural environment and quality of life around us. Not sure what to do? There are an abundance of resources available to help you incorporate sustainability into your life. Pick one that works best for you and stick with it.

  • Get outside. You never know what kind of whether you are going to get in Colorado in April but what better way to celebrate Earth Day than getting out and physically connecting with the Earth.

  • Every day is earth day. Remember that you can make a difference each and every day. It is the small things that add up and how change starts. While Earth Day is a great reminder to be conscious of how our actions affect the planet, we should not use it as an excuse to only modify our behavior for one day.
