#EarthDay: What You Did

Published on Written by Posted in Industry

Every day should be Earth Day. But having a holiday to serve as an important reminder and a rallying point for all makes celebrating that much sweeter...and significant.

We asked you about your #EarthDay plans on Twitter: Read on for some of our favorite tweets and submissions.

Happy Earth Day! I'm celebrating by reducing my carbon footprint & telecommuting to work each day instead of driving 50+ miles.

I am planning to plant some houseplants to absorb the VOCs from my parents' new kitchen cabinets. I'm also going to buy Joanna Macy's new book, Active Hope: How to Face the Mess We're in without Going Crazy.
