To help commemorate this 40th anniversary of celebrating our dear, sweet Mother Earth, we’re putting together a little Care2 Earth Day Extravaganza for you all. Our posts through the week will be covering everything from human overpopulation and ways to get control of the problem, to how the meat industry pollutes the planet more than all the cars, planes, trains and ships in the world…combined. Yep, you heard me right … all of them COMBINED!
Oh and definitely don’t forget to enter for a chance to win a free copy of our very own Judy Molland’s Get Out! 150 Easy Ways for Kids and Grown-Ups to Get Into Nature and Build a Greener Future.
Check back often because we have tons of posts popping up throughout the week to help celebrate this important day!
And you know our amazing friends over at Care2′s Healthy & Green Living are just downright giddy about Earth Day. They’re doing a whole lotta celebrating over there, so be sure to check out all the earthy goodness they’re offerin’ up, too!
