0 What are you doing for Earth Day?

So tomorrow is Earth Day. I am amazed at the number of people who don't even know what or when Earth Day is. This year I have seen even less advertising (locally and otherwise) than previous years.

What are you doing to celebrate the day? I don't really know what we are going to do. We try to do things in our life every day that minimize our impact on the environment so I struggle to find something that is unique enough to say that we are doing it just because it is Earth Day.

My friend Sam decided to convey her message about Earth Day by drawing on the board walk.

I started thinking about what are the 'typical' things that people do to celebrate Earth Day:
- tree planting
- garbage cleanup
- commuter challenges

Okay I am struggling here. Why is it that all Earth Day celebrations center around tree planting and garbage pickups? Is it because these are the only simple/easy things that organizers can come up with so people will actually want to participate? I don't know.
