Her Side: For the past few years, Earth Day has been celebrated on April 22. Since the weather is finally starting to get warmer, it’s the perfect time to get out around your community. Walk around the neighborhood and pick up trash anywhere you see it. Go through your house and recycle whatever you can. And for even more fun, try planting a tree with your family!His side: Instead of driving somewhere, walk or bike there. Use less water by taking shorter showers rather then baths or long showers. Also, putting a brick or two in the tank of a toilet can save gallons of water every day. Save electricity by turning off lights, TV’s, computers and such when not being used. Lastly, go out side and celebrate earth day by planting a few flowers. I am sure mom would love some help in the garden.”I think people need to spend more time thinking about the environment and less time fighting wars.” Shannon, 14″I’m going to plant a flower with my family.” Matthew, 6″Everyone is worrying too much about the earth. There is no such thing as global warming, and the earth is going to be around for a long time.” Aaron, 15What can YOU do for Earth Day? Tell us
