EnviroKidz Celebrate-the-Earth Giveaway

Disclosure: I received samples for this post. All opinions on this blog are my own.

2015 will be the 45th anniversary for Earth Day. My earliest memory of Earth Day goes back to 1989. We learned about it in my grade six class. I remember making crafts and talking about the impact of pollution in science class. We didn’t really celebrate it at home though and reducing, reusing and recycling wasn’t as prevalent as it is today. In our home today, things are much different in that respect! Now we compost, recycle, and conserve as much as we can. We bring our own grocery bags to the store when we go shopping. We think before we throw something away. We celebrate the Earth in every way we can.
