Today, April 22 is Earth Day. According to EarthDay.org, the first Earth Day took place on April 22, 1970 and is sited as marking the beginning of the environmental movement.

How do you celebrate or mark Earth Day? That is entirely up to you. People have been known to pick up trash in their community, plant trees, build com-posters in their yard, plant gardens, switch to using cloth grocery bags as opposed to the plastic ones you get at the grocery check out.
