Earth Day Activities and Upcycling Crafts

Earth Day Activities, Games and Upcycling Crafts | ecogreenlove

Every April 22, it’s a day to celebrate Earth Day but also to create awareness that Our world needs transformational change. We believe that caring for the Earth is not a matter of one day but a change of habits to transform our individual lifestyles (which will influence us as a consumer, a voter, and a member of a community that can unite for a change).

Whether it’s a creative or functional upcycling, a walk in a park or through the woods, picking up litter, or buying more Earth-friendly products, here are many ways that you can help to care for your planet and make Earth Day Everyday.
