Earth Day Effort? A Billion Acts of Environmental Kindness

easy being greenMonday is Earth Day. How are you going to celebrate?

The Earth Day Network has an extensive website full of good ideas and great educational materials to help teachers, parents, and others celebrate Earth Day with kids. One of our favorite projects is the Billion Acts of Kindness. Here’s a bit about the project from the website…

A Billion Acts of Green® inspires and rewards both simple individual acts and larger organizational initiatives that reduce carbon emissions and support sustainability.

It’s a global referendum on the environment. …

People can still register all the other actions they’re taking to protect the environment – from washing laundry in cold water and riding a bike instead of driving to planting a garden and volunteering with a community clean-up. And organizations can still register actions such as community environmental meetings, tree plantings, large-scale light bulb changes, workplace renewable energy retrofits, and Earth Day events.

The A Billion Acts of Green® website quantifies all these acts of green through an easy-to-use online registration tool.

We love the idea of quantifying and celebrating the environmental actions. It’s a great way to show students the impact their small action can have when coupled with actions around the world. And they are halfway to making their goal of 2 billion acts.
