Bugaboo Earth Day Challenge

Happy Earth Day!  

Earth Day History

Ever wondered how Earth Day started? This observance arose from an interest in gathering national support for environmental issues. In 1970, San Francisco activist John McConnell and Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson separately asked Americans to join in a grassroots demonstration. McConnell chose the spring equinox (March 21, 1970) and Nelson chose April 22. Millions of people participated, and today Earth Day continues to be widely celebrated with events on both dates. The most common practice of celebration is to plant new trees for Earth Day.

Any way you choose to celebrate Earth Day,
I hope we will always remember to keep our earth clean.  
Remember to recycle as much as you can and 
keep our parks, mountains, lakes and oceans free from debris.  
Leave them cleaner than when your arrived so that others will enjoy their beauty too!

I used this Bugaboo Stamp Crab Boat to remind you of our oceans and the lovely creatures that are housed there.  Please allow them to stay!  Do not pour chemicals down your street drains as they drain directly to rivers, lakes and the ocean!

When I was visiting Hong Kong and Okinawa 
nothing was more beautiful than viewing 
a pink dolphin, sea turtles and many other creatures.  
 Happy Earth Day!
