Today, April 22, is Earth Day 2011 .
According to the Earth Day website:
The first Earth Day, on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement. The passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed. Growing out of the first Earth Day, Earth Day Network (EDN) works with over 22,000 partners in 192 countries to broaden, diversify and mobilize the environmental movement. More than 1 billion people now participate in Earth Day activities each year, making it the largest civic observance in the world.

Everyday should be Earth Day. What are you doing to help?
I use energy efficient light bulbs, keep the heat as low as I can and use cloth bags at the grocery store. I don't run the water when I'm brushing my teeth or doing the dishes. I didn't even own a car until three years ago. And the car I do own is very fuel efficient. It all helps. :)
Happy Earth Day!
