Earth Day is this week and the fact that I had to look it up on Wikipedia for its exact purpose makes my point all the more true. Does anyone know exactly when and why Earth Day was started beside to give back/celebrate our Mother Earth. What are people expected to do on that day and is anybody doing anything to celebrate the holiday? As far as I know, no one around me is even aware of the upcoming holiday, partly because it doesn’t involve presents and they have not received an event notification via Facebook. Earth Day needs to be seriously revamped for today’s on the go, Internet dependent, and commercially driven individual. I plan to spread awareness by pretending to be environmentally conscious and shaming all my friends who didn’t know it was Earth Day by having them do something environmentally friendly (aka going to the beach only if the weather allows it). Earth Day is give-and-take, Mother Earth gives me 60-degree weather, and I will enjoy it on the shores.
