Every day should be “Earth Day” but it’s April and it wouldn’t be right if we didn’t emphasize the importance of keeping us and the planet in check to remember this year’s Earth Day, April 22nd.
I know I’ve expressed dismay about how Earth Day is celebrated but this year will be different for me because I’m celebrating Earth Day the entire month of April with Green Sisterhood using social media to get the message out.
If you are on Instagram and Twitter, you want to know about this fun earth loving activities so you can participate too. I’m so excited to use social media to have some fun while sharing our thoughts on various earth loving activities. It’s so much better than getting a booth at an Earth Day Fair at one location, if you ask me.
Read the details below but first, follow me on Instagram (@ecokaren) and check #earthdaygs. Also follow me on Twitter (@ecokarenlee) so you can see all the tweets. Make sure to tag me or use #earthdaygs so I can see your posts.
