Earth Day is an important day to appreciate and honor everything that the Earth has given us. As always, reducing water usage, recycling, and purchasing reusable water bottles and bags are just a few ways to reduce your impact on the planet. Another way to celebrate is with some of the creative events that Mobilize organizers have put together! Here are five of our favorite opportunities to celebrate Earth Day, because there is no Planet B.
