Earth Day (April 22) is an awesome learning opportunity for children and their parents to think about how fragile our planet is and what we can collectively do to do our part to help save the world from an ecological point of view. But did you know that Earth Day isn't just for kids? In fact, caring for and protecting Mother Earth is so important to us all, that there is also Earth Week (April 22-26) and Earth Month (the entire month of April), making the Earth-friendly opportunities to everyone of every age.
