Earth Week | Reading Garden Activities



Earth Day is an annual event celebrated on April 22. Worldwide, various events are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. First celebrated in 1970, there are Earth Day events in more than 193 countries and are now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network.

​​Earth Day 2018 Theme: End Plastic Pollution
From poisoning and injuring marine life to disrupting human hormones, from littering our beaches and landscapes to clogging our waste streams and landfills, the exponential growth of plastics is now threatening the survival of our planet.
