Earth Day 2016- WHAT ON EARTH ARE YOU DOING TO HELP?
Join NASA for a #24Seven Celebration of Earth Day
NASA wants to capture what people all around the world are doing to protect, improve and celebrate Earth – and we need your help.
How can I take part?
Millions of people will take time out of their day this April 22 to do their part to make Earth a better place. Others will mark the day by spending it outside, celebrating the beauty, ruggedness and life-giving elements that make Earth our home in the solar system.Take a picture or a short video of whatever Earth-focused activity you are doing on Earth Day and post it on social media with the hashtag #24Seven. Pictures and videos can be posted to Twitter, Instagram and to the official NASA Facebook Event page. https://www.facebook.com/NASA/
This designated day of April 22 has become an annual reminder of our responsibility to be good stewards of the Earth. You can contribute to a healthier Earth in multiple ways: plant a garden, pick up trash, purchase biodegradable products, and commit to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Join in and help: PLANT A TREE #trees4earth
Planting trees is one of the easiest and most sustainable ways to positively affect the environment. We need trees now more than ever!
Trees help combat climate change.
They absorb excess and harmful CO2 from our atmosphere. In fact, in a single year, an acre of mature trees absorbs the same amount of CO2 produced by driving the average car 26,000 miles.
Trees help us breathe clean air.
Trees absorb odors and pollutant gases (nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide and ozone) and filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark.
Trees help communities achieve long-term economic and environmental sustainability and provide food, energy and income.
