Since its humble beginning in 1970, Earth Day became a global event in 1990, with some 200 million people getting involved. And now Earth Day 2009 is expected to attract between 500 million and 1 billion! Will you be one of them and what will you be doing?
Here are a few suggestions:
You could walk to work instead of driving. You could make Earth Day a recycling day. You could use less water or less power. Don't throw away or lock away your old mobile or PC, recycle it! You might even be able to make some cash in the process. If everyone in the UK had a meatless meal once a week it could save more carbon than 5 million cars. Imagine the potential of becoming vegetarian or vegan!
