Give Back by "Going Green" for Earth Day.

Earth Day is April 22 and not only does that mean longer days and warmer weather, but it’s also a chance to start thinking about “going green.” What’s “going green” you may ask? Well, it’s about lots of people doing small things that all add up to make our world cleaner, greener and healthier.
We all can help our planet by remembering to “reduce, reuse and recycle.” You can lead a cleanup of a river, beach or park in honor of Earth Day, use reusable shopping bags; or start a recycling project at work. Whether you like small projects or big ones, physical work or more brainy tasks – there’s a bunch of ways for you to help others Go Green.
And we want to help you reduce your carbon footprint, with our new GO GREEN  toolkit, developed in conjunction with the Earth Day Network .
Create The Good  is highlighting going green during National Volunteer Week April 18-24 and they want to hear from you. What do you have planned? Share your ideas and join the conversation on their new Green Volunteering  group and inspire others to get involved!
