Earth Day is celebrated every year on April 22nd. It was first celebrated in 1970. It is a day used to promote and support environmental protection for our Earth. We don't need a special day to celebrate. We can celebrate this day year round! We have to think of our future and generations to come. Taking care of the Earth is best for every organism in the future. What are some things you do to protect our Earth? What are some things others can do to help the Earth? This leads right into the challenge for the month. How can you reuse materials to reduce your impact on the environment?
For this challenge, there are not any criteria or constraints! Use your imagination to think of different ways to use something, especially plastic items since they take a very long time to decompose. Search the web. Learn how others or reusing items to make art, clothing, fashion accessories, bags/wallets, jewelry, etc.
