    Celebrating Earth Day

    Posted: April 16, 2019



    What will YOU do to celebrate and participate this Earth Day


    People are thinking more and more about the environment — whether it’s something that affects the quality of life here in the Southwest Suburbs or global issues such as climate change, extreme weather and extinction.

    But more importantly, people aren’t content with simply thinking about these things any more. They’re focused on taking action. Earth Day, which is celebrated April 22, is the perfect time to take action, whether you are looking to take part in a community event or organize your own.

    This year’s theme is “Protect Our Species!” Currently, the world is facing the fastest rate of extinction since the loss of the dinosaurs more than 60 million years ago. Find out more about this years theme.

    Here are some tips to help you get involved — and think about our planet Earth all through the year.

    Find an event

    It’s easy to find Earth Day events, whether you live in Orland Park or any of our surrounding suburbs. City and town Facebook pages are a great place to start, along with the websites of local environmental organizations. Newspapers, radio and TV often publicize events as well.

    What can I do?

    There are all kinds of Earth Day activities, even some you can easily complete by yourself or with your family. Examples include:

    • Planting trees
    • Cleaning up litter from a natural area or park
    • Adopting a road for litter control
    • Talking about Earth Day and helping to educate others
    • Using alternate transportation, instead of taking your car
    • Holding a garage sale or clothing swap, rather than throwing out unwanted items
    • Learning more about actions you can take to reduce your environmental impact and help save the species

    Make it more than a day Of course, one of the best ways to have an impact is to make every day your own Earth Day. You can take part in earth-friendly activities at any time! So in addition to celebrating once a year, make this April 22 just the beginning of something special And whether you find an event or create your own, the important thing is getting involved.
