Earth Day is April 22, 2009. Our "Trash Off" and "River Cleanup" are two events that work with Earth Day as well as the voluntary compliance of helping keep our city litter free. Every local observance of Earth Day will help its global purpose; Earth Trustee attitudes and actions throughout the year that will benefit people and the planet. On Earth Day we get attention for solutions and bring to our task the joy of celebration.
The day should be devoted to projects that will help the Earth Trustee agenda--Peace, Justice and the care of the Earth.
*Earth Day, the original, has always been on the March Equinox--an occasion when night and day are equal in both Northern and Southern Hemispheres. This event is simultaneous world-wide, which means the local time will be different in each time zone. And in some cases, in relation to the other side of the Earth, it will be the next day.
