I admit it – I’ve never watched “An Inconvenient Truth.” It’s not that I don’t care about the environment or that I don’t realize how critical it is that we all do our part to reverse the damage humans have done. It’s just that the whole environmental movement can seem so intimidating. Where do you start? Well, one way to get the recycled ball rolling is by participating in an Earth Day activity this year.
Earth Day, which is celebrated on April 22 in the United States, is a great opportunity to take a first step toward a greener Earth. If you live in the New Jersey area, be sure to check out GreenFest on April 3-5 as a precursor to the actual holiday. There are lots of kid-friendly activities and if you’re an educator you can even get ideas for ways to incorporate “green” activities into your classroom.
