How will you be celebrating Earth Day this year?
This coming Sunday is Earth Day, which has been celebrated on the third Sunday in April for over four decades, since 1970.
Feng Shui-wise it’s a perfect opportunity to treat Mother Earth with the care and respect she deserves.
Here’s a site where you can locate the festivals, celebrations and other community events near where you live. Some of the best ones I’ve seen include eco-fashion shows, activities for “green kids,” gardening and composting workshops and more.
And have you calculated your carbon footprint lately?
As for me, I just made a pledge to “submit an act of green” — eliminating my use of pesticides and toxic cleaning products. I feel better already ;-))
Do you have any special plans for the day? Please share!
ps, I was very fortunate to attend the first celebration in Central Park in 1970. Here’s how Fifth Avenue looked that day, as crowds of people marched to the park:
I’m in there somewhere 🙂
