A few days back we mentioned that Mother’s Day is the next big holiday, but there is one other important holiday coming up before then: Earth Day on April 22nd. While it might not be as well-known or celebrated, it’s still a very important day of the year that you should look at as a time to reflect and look at what you’re doing to help the environment. If you’re wondering what to do for 2016 Earth Day in Edmonton AB, we’ve got a few ideas for you to think about in advance.
Plant a Tree
You can’t get much more Earth Day than just going out there and planting a tree. Whether working with an organization or charity, or simply stepping out your back door, planting a tree can be a great way to recognize the holiday. Choose your tree wisely and go out there and create life, not only will it feel good to plant something but you’ll be making the world that much brighter for the future.
Welcome Animals to your Yard
If you’re more of an animal person than a plant one, then an equally rewarding and important task to complete on Earth Day could be welcoming animals to your yard. Whether putting out a feeder for birds or squirrels or anything else like that, simply creating a spot for animals to feel safe and rest is a great way to take care of the environment.
Edmonton Earth Day Festival
Of course, what’s a holiday without a festival? Even if you plant a tree or welcome some little critters to your backyard, you can still head to the Edmonton Earth Day Festival at 10120 104th St. on April 24th from noon to 3:00 p.m. A great way to celebrate the holiday, this year’s theme is Clean Your Commute so you’ll have an opportunity to learn all sorts of ways to make your morning and afternoon commute a bit more green, like walking or riding your bike. Tons of great organizations will be present, so you won’t want to miss it!
However you decide to spend your Earth Day, we simply hope that you enjoy the holiday while reflecting on the importance of making the world a better place. If like many people you don’t think you can live without a vehicle, then be sure to look at our list of hybrid vehicles for a way to better treat the environment on four wheels without giving up gas.
