- Do your homework. Read the EPA's "official" history of Earth Day.
- Read a livelier history, which puts the first Earth Day into the early 1970s context—when the Beatles made their last album, fiber optics were first developed, and "Americans were slurping leaded gas through massive V8 sedans."
- Plant a tree—it's a two-fer, you're also celebrating Arbor Day. Check out these tree planting kits available for home gardens as well as schools and other groups.
- Eat locally. Celebrate with a meal prepared with foods from within 100 miles—a good way to conserve resources used for transportation and to support organic growers in your area. At our home base in the San Francisco Bay Area, the farmers' markets are overflowing with early spring treats and regional specialties: artichokes, asparagus, Meyer lemons, green garlic, all sorts of greens—drink a holiday toast with an organic chardonnay or cabernet. Do you have your own tasty local menu to tell us about?
- Join the crowd—at a big public event. View this city guide for Earth Day happenings around the world, in Washington, DC, and close to home.
- Teach your children. Here's one of many good sources of activities to get kids involved with the environment and understanding the meaning of Earth Day.
