10 Creative Ways to Celebrate Earth Day at Home

Every day is a day to be kind to the earth and appreciate the beauty around us, but with Earth Day on April 22, you can show some extra love to the earth! Earth Day 2021 marks the 51st anniversary of this holiday, and the theme this year is “Restore Our Earth.” While social distancing measures are still in place, the usual community cleanups and planting will have to take a hiatus, but that doesn’t mean nature is canceled. Here are ten creative ways you can celebrate Earth Day at home!
