Celebrate Earth Day!! (No Matter Where You Live) #EarthDay

As you may have noticed many people around the country are gearing up for the annual event on April 22nd called Earth Day.  There are many many events  going on to help us celebrate our big blue sphere that you can easily participate in.  And even if you can't attend an event there are easy ways to celebrate Earth Day without even living your home. 




Obviously the first thing I am going  to mention is our video with the @RainforestSite.  You can help save our rainforests just by going to their site and clicking on the link.  Watch our newest video here and then go to The Rainforest Site and

Since I spend so much time on Twitter with our account here are some other great events and ideas I have seen over the past week to help celebrate #EarthDay:

Enjoy the St. George Day Festival (Saturday April 20th, 2013 from 12pm - 7pm) at Thompkinsville Park on Staten Island. The festival includes a dragon parade, puppet shoes, recycling games and many other Earthday related activities.   Learn more about the festival here:  http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2013/04/20/st-george-day-festival

Attend the Green Festival at the Javits Center April 20th - 21st.  They have all kinds of green focused events and keynote speakers that are going to be involved in this year's festival.    Learn More Here:  http://www.greenfestivals.org/nyc

This is just the beginning of things you can do and events you can attend to celebrate our earth.  And if you do participate in an event and are on Twitter don't forget to share with everyone and tag it with #EarthDay.  Remember even the smallest act can help make our planet a better place.  You can be the change you want to see in the world. #bethechange
