We only have the one Mother Earth and we need to take care of her.  There are so many different ways you can contribute.  Pick an element that is important to you: water, air, plants, animals…all of them need help. Today is a great day to teaching your kids to appreciate the world around them and start a new family tradition.  Plant a new tree in your yard and commit to doing it every spring.  Take a walk with your kids armed with garbage bags and clean up a strip of roadway or a local park.  Pledge to each other to turn off the lights when you leave a room – or even better, voluntarily spend the evening with NO ELECTRICITY! Play cards via candlelight; the kids will love it!  Or simply donate to your favorite earth-friendly charity, such as the Arbor Day Foundation or the World Wildlife Fund.
