You can celebrate Earth Day in many ways, big or small. By taking shorter showers, you can help conserve water. Riding your bike instead of driving, when possible, can help reduce pollution. Planting a tree or a garden can help clean the air we breathe. Any efforts you make, no matter how minor they may seem, will contribute to taking care of our Earth.
