Earth Day History

Earth Day began on April 22nd, 1970 when people took to the streets to protest the ongoing negative impact of over 150 years of industrial pollution and development.

Today, it is a global event and it is believed that over a billion people around the world take part in it each year.

Earth Day is a worldwide commitment that aims to bring awareness to how we interact with our environment and planet, including our gardens!


Earth Day Ideas

There are many steps you can take to implement an eco-friendly garden.

By committing to earth-friendly gardening methods, you are reducing your carbon footprint and helping to make a big difference in this global movement.

You can bring awareness of earth day through your garden in many ways, and these small steps can really add up.

Four earth day ideas for your garden are:

1) Plant Native Plants

Sounds so simple, right?

By planting these region-specific flowers, you can really pack a punch in your eco-friendly gardening efforts.

Native plants require less water and less maintenance because they are already adapted to your environment.

Every state and region has its own unique native plants. To find more information for your area, click here.


2) Promote local pollinators and wildlife

This one act of earth-friendliness is so imperative for the future of our pollinators.

By creating or replicating the natural habitat of these important critters, you can ensure their survival.

Create safe places for food and water, provide shelter, and plant native plants to invite them into your garden.

You will be happy you made the effort


3) Reuse or Repurpose Various Items

Be creative with your trash!

Reuse and repurpose the materials from around your house into your garden so they don’t go into the landfill or our oceans.

This important act can help have lasting effects on the health of our planet for years to come.


4) Verbal Communication

By simply talking to your friends, family, and neighbors about local news and ecological or environmental issues, even just lightly discussing, you can help spread the word.

Bring awareness to those around you and make them think about their place in it.
