Why Do We Celebrate Earth Day?

Because it’s important to promote environmental awareness! Taking care of the earth is important and this day helps to promote that.

Pollution has become an increasing problem over the years, and while we may not see its effects, our kids will. When your kids are still young, it can be difficult for them to grasp the effects of pollution or how that impacts the environment. This is why it’s so important to teach them these concepts now! These work as great classroom activities or just something fun to do on Earth Day this year. Use Earth Day to incorporate these activities into your child’s Earth Day celebration and teach them about the importance of taking care of the Earth now so it will still be there tomorrow.
