Celebrate Earth Day Early This Weekend

This Tuesday, April 22nd, is Earth day, and I would like to delicate this blog to some various activities that people are doing to help Mother Earth.

For those who are creative:
Saturday, April 19 from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM go to the Artbeat The Creativity Store in Arlington. Her eyou can turn plastic bottles into flower vases, and old shoe boxes you may have lying around into photo keepers. This event will help you reuse and repurpose current items you already have around the house.

For those who like animals:
This Saturday at the Stoneham Zoo is celebrating Earth Day Sunday, April 20, from 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM. They will have crafts, activities, animal encounters and environmentally-friendly exhibitors, while also providing learning opportunities about ways to help save our planet. There will also be featured entertainers, click here for more information.

For those that like to reduce paper waste:
A house in London was built entirely out of newspaper. Now you may not have the means or know-how to create a house out of recyclable materials, but CoolPeopleCare is asking for Monday (Patriot's day), April 21st to be BYOM (Bring Your Own Mug), which would save countless trees from being used to hold the coffee your drinking right now. If you like the idea of bringing your own mug then you can also join the Mug Project.

Now, I am sure you may know of more events than I do, but these are few that I thought were worth mentioning... and you'll see me Monday morning with a mug in my hand.

Ok, so I actually went to the Stone Zoo this Saturday with the girls I babysit for. There were NO Earth Day activities in sight. There were some tents set up with tables underneath them... but nothing else. Just poor wild animals in tiny cages. Not very Earth friendly, if you ask me... (though at least the children are getting edu-ma-cated).
