You don’t have to be the crunchy granola type to understand why preserving the earth is a pretty important task — after all, we live here. On April 22, 1970, a bunch of earth lovers got together for the first Earth Day celebration, kicking off the modern environmental movement. It’s 45 years later and now more than 1 billion people will observe this global civic holiday. Don’t be left out! There are lots of ways to promote healthy communities, support environmental activism, and make our little patch of earth – Atlanta – a greener place to live. Check out these activities and Earth Day celebrations around town. Did we miss any? Let us know your plants for Earth Day 2015.
