Earth Day 2009 is on the very green horizon. What? You haven’t even started to plan? That’s okay because so many others have sprung into action and are ready to help out.
As I looked around the internet for various activities, I went to one of my modern, go-to-cyberplaces to find activites: Facebook.
The best thing about Facebook is that it’s free. Now that I’ve said that, I want to point out that it can also be incredibly local. You can start a page on Facebook in just a few minutes and find all kinds of activities for Earth Day.
If you haven’t done this, you should. I typed in “Earth Day 2009” and got 228 results. (Probably by the time you read this, there will be more!) If I add “Los Angeles,” I narrow the field to the activities that might interest me most. Or if you added New York, Washington, Chicago, Houston or any other location.
What? You live in a small town and there’s nothing posted? That’s great! That means you can start a page for Earth Day in your town and use it to post activities for everyone to see. You can also post your own efforts to Greenify at home and at work. Swap tips on how to conserve natural resources. And maybe even start a carpool club.
All kinds of opportunities to observe Earth Day are out there. And Facebook isn’t going to be the only place to find them. Earth Day is what you make it. Consider that when you’re turning out the light as you leave the room and hanging a new clothes line across your backyard. That’s all it takes to Greenify going into Earth day 2009.
