April 22, 1970 was the start of the day that the Earth is to be celebrated. Each year people all across the world engage in activities to celebrate the place we live.

Earth day started because people in 1970 saw the damages that their generation was doing to the environment. Through the years, damage has been seen by many from modern-day inventions, and other things that can potentially harm the earth. 47 years later, people are continually finding new ways to improve the Earth.

Becca Bair a member of the Snow College Forensics Team went to Ephraim Elementary this past week to talk about recycling. Of her experience, she said: “I think that recycling is important. I tried to make it my speech entertaining so that the kids would find it fun, and want to get involved. By encouraging children to recycle that could encourage their parents and other members within the community to be involved in recycling.”

Each student can take part in doing activities to help the earth on Earth Day and all the other days during the year. Here is a list of things to do:

  • Use reusable water bottles, and grocery bags
  • Reduce, reuse and recycle
  • Take a walk
  • Go on a hike
  • Plant flowers or a tree
  • Walk to class, instead of driving
  • Carpool to work or school
  • Clean up liter around campus, and the community
  • Be smart about water use

ShaNae Price was asked what she does right now to help the Earth, she said “I use reusable water bottles, and carpool as much as I can. Even though it’s not huge things, I still feel like I am helping the environment in some way.”

On April 22 of this year, everyone should make it a goal of theirs to do something that will help the environment, and the earth. Even small acts can make a difference when it comes to the environment. The Earth gives so much to the humans that live on it; it is time for the humans to take action and give back to the Earth.
