As much as we love to celebrate "days" in this generation, (National Spicy Guacamole Day or National Sibling Day) we have one of the most important ones coming up this Sunday; Earth Day! Earth Day: Sunday, April 22 This is a day set aside to celebrate the planet we all share, a day to clean up our neighborhoods, and one to appreciate what we have all around us. https://twitter.com/Space_Station/status/986644414935248899 Wondering what to do for it? We have some ideas here: Check out the EPA's website (Environmental Protection Agency) by clicking/tapping here. There, you can do a lot from finding events happening in your community to getting school resources for the classroom. Related topic: The history of Earth Day We encourage you to do a quick search of 'Earth Day' in the social media platform of your choice. After just a few minutes of looking, we're sure you'll find some activities, groups, ideas, etc. for Sunday. If anything else, use Earth Day Sunday as a chance to get outside, go for a walk, and enjoy the weather. https://www.facebook.com/nasaearth/photos/a.10150660751157139.441503.57242657138/10156430447277139/?type=3&theater If you do end up going out and partaking in an Earth Day event, we'd love to know about it! Share a picture, video, or comment on our Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram pages by tapping either of those mentioned social media platforms! Your picture/video could even be used right here on WeatherNation TV! One of the "call-to-actions" this year (from EarthDay.org) is "End Plastic Pollution." The website, found here, encourages you to assess how much plastic you consume every year and make a pledge to reduce that amount. Make it a great weekend.
