Call me a hippie, call me a tree hugger (no really, please do, I love that), call me what you will, I love Earth Day. Totally not planned, I even had a baby on the day, which I also love. I enjoy the awareness that surrounds this day. I enjoy the thought that this awareness may get some people thinking that weren’t before about steps that they can take to help our Earth. Easy steps that they can do every day to keep it strong for generations to come.
So of course as the internet opened up the flood gates with the hashtags #EarthDay and #EarthDay2014, I followed. And I read. And now, I am sharing.
Here are some of my favorite posts from one of my favorite days:
