Today is Earth Day!

Earth Day is an event which takes place every year on the 22nd April. 1970 was the first year Earth Day was held and since then, people have shown their support for the environment by becoming involved. On this day, awareness of climate change is raised and people are encouraged to protect.

The theme of Earth Day this year is 'Climate Control'.

Discuss with your adult what this means.

What is climate change?

What is your job in the fight against climate change?

Can you be an Eco monitor in your house today?

  • You could check how many lights are switched on in your house, if the room is empty turn them off. 
  • Finished with a packet or container? Can this be recycled rather than thrown into the general waste?
  • Go screen free for the day. Use less energy and unplug. Read a book, ride your bike, do some crafts or a jigsaw. Using less energy keeps the planet and everyone on it healthier for the future. 

What other ideas can you think of that you and your family could do to help in the fight against climate change? Let us know some of your ideas.

Happy Earth Day!
