Fun ways to celebrate Earth Day

 

It's never too late to start living green. Whether you're recycling, gardening or picking up litter, it's easy to help the environment and reduce your carbon footprint.

As Earth Day reminds us of our duty to help keep the planet clean, why not get your friends and family together to celebrate the occasion? For outdoor enthusiasts, it's the perfect time to plant trees, vegetable plots and attract birds and butterflies to your garden. It's also a great way to bond with your kids and teach them about good Earth stewardship.

If you're interested in raising money for your favourite charity, try one of our fun and simple ways to host a fundraiser. Gather your friends for a community garage sale. Or, get everyone to participate in making a fancy six-course dinner and deliver it to the highest bidder. Not only will you be spending quality time with friends, but you'll be able to give back and help others.
