Earth Day is an important day of celebration in my household.
I want my son to grow up with a sense of reverence for this great planet that we live on. I try my best to be a good role model to him in this regard — I bring my own bags to the market, I buy in bulk, & I try to consume less on the whole. But despite my efforts, I know that I still need reminders, just as he needs to be taught good habits and behaviors. Earth Day may technically fall on a mere single day each year, but I would like my son and I to live consciously and make "Every Day Earth Day".
We spent the week that led up to Earth Day reading the following books on how we can take care of the Earth. Click on title below book to be led to Amazon site

We hung our finished Earth from the ceiling in my art studio, so that we can be reminded of our pledge each day.
Let us all try to embrace ecologically sensible habits. Efforts put forth by each of us can make a difference.
