The 40th anniversary of Earth Day is next week, April 22nd, but did you know that your local Earth Day festivities are most likely THIS weekend?
Not only is the couple-day early timing working against you, but the lack of a central hub for discovering local activities and festivals might cause you to miss out on them too.
Consider us your hub…
Earth Day News
A quick Google search for “Earth Day” will lead you to believe that there are 2 — and possibly 3 — “official” Earth Day websites.
When visiting EarthDay.org and EarthDay.net, you get the feeling that 2 two sites are working together.
But if that is true, why do they provide different information?
Clicking “Earth Day Events” or “Find an Event” on EarthDay.net takes you to EarthDay.org’s event search node.
The official Earth Day event in Nashville, TN, where I live, is not even listed there.
Click on the “Find Earth Day events around the globe” link on EarthDay.net’s homepage and you’ll be taken to their own search node.
…where my local event is listed.
How frustrating is that?
Even though the EPA’s Earth Day site seems a little less “official”, it also seems to be more robust.
When is your local Earth Day festival? If you’re not rocking a festival, what are your plans for Earth Day?
I think every little step toward living green is an awesome one… but eco-snobbery sucks! My goal is to help newbies learn the most important steps toward living green — individually and collectively. Personally, I strive to have as little impact as possible on Planet Earth while I'm here.
