More than a billion people around the world will celebrate Earth Day on April 22, 2014—the 44th anniversary of the annual day of action. Earth Day began in 1970, when 20 million people across the United States—that’s one in ten—rallied for increased protection of the environment.

Post a comment and tell me what you do or what small steps you take to protect our planet.

    In our apartments, we do recycling, so that may be the small step we take to protect our planet. We throw away the plastics and paper in different trash bins. I also turn off the consent when I don’t use any of the lights or electronics that needs power.

      This is good to hear. What is recycling like in Korea? Is it good? Do they have separate garbage bins for plastic and cans, etc.? I would imagine it’s good. It was not very good in Kuwait where I last lived. It’s excellent in the U.S. and you can be fined if you don’t recycle.
