Some of you may not have known but today is Earth Day! Earth Day has been celebrated since the 1970s. This day is used to bring awareness to the turmoil and negative impact some actions can have on the planet. Being educated about global warming/change and the benefits of saving energy can help make a positive impact on the environment. To date, 192 countries, 10,000 schools and about 2,000 universities participate in Earth Day events.
There are two events students can participate in on Earth Day here at Georgia Southern: Ride Your Bike To Work Day and the Campus Farmer’s Market.
Do something today that will benefit our world, and go green!
Here are some suggestions:
- Unplug electronics that are not in use
- Plant flowers
- Start recycling
- Build a birdhouse
