Friday, April 22 marks the 46th annual Earth Day. In 1970, a group of environmental activists began a movement that continues to inspire, challenge ideas, ignite passion and motivate like-minded people to take action. The movement inspired the designation of April as Earth Month. As politicians debate the existence of global warming and haggle over tax credits for clean energy, we can quietly go about improving the world around us by taking time to plant trees, clean streams, recycle and more. Here are XX ways your family can celebrate Earth Day 2016 around the Triad.
