April 22, 2023 is the 53rd Earth Day. I love Earth Day and absolutely believe it is important, but, we really need it to be Earth Day every day. In these 53 years we've still catapulted ourselves into the worst environmental issues and scientists continue to warn us that we're running out of time to turn things around.
The most impactful thing we can do as humans is stop eating animals, but, we'll talk about that in an upcoming blog. Here, I wanted to share with you some links to find Earth Day events near you so you have a few days to plan your best Earth Day yet. I quickly realized that I could spend all day pulling links so I chose a few to help get you started. I've included some links local-ish to me, websites to find global events, and things you can do right at home.

If you're thinking about gardening, check out my podcast with Meg Kelly of Learn Veganic from earlier this month. Then visit her website for tons of helpful tips to get started on a garden that is kind to the planet and all her inhabitants.
Have you been waiting for someone else to fix the planet? Do you feel as if you're only one person so how much impact could you possibly have? (hint: it's A LOT!) Are you feeling inspired but don't know what do to next? Stay tuned for tomorrow's blog, where I'll get into this.
Before you go, tell me in the comments if you'll check out a local event this weekend, choose something from the Almanac website, or do something else to celebrate Earth Day. I've found a few events here in NJ that interest me, not sure just yet which one I'll choose!
