Earth Day is April 22nd, how will you celebrate this year? It is a chance for us to give back to the Earth and appreciate all of the precious resources we take from it. I have not been as intentional as I would like to be with my children, so this year we are going all out in the pursuit of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. There are so many wonderful resources on the internet to help parents celebrate this day with their children. Here are a few we’ll be using.
