Forty years and counting. Earth Day started in 1970 and has been celebrated every year since. Today is the one day of the year where everyone should be involved in the green revolution! It is a day to take the time to help out your planet. Take the initiative to get involved and conserve.
In recognition of BGSU’s 40th Earth Day anniversary, today on campus they are making it easier for you to get involved. You can visit the eco-fair going on in University circle. There are over 50 different exhibits from different organizations, business and local government offices. It is the largest Eco-Fair Bowling Green has ever had to offer. A few exhibits that you can find there are Geojourney, Wood County Waste and plant retailers. There are plenty of opportunities to get trees to plant in honor of this day! You can also buy potted plants for your dorm rooms or house. Get all of your friends and family involved.
BGSU is also celebrating in others ways in honor of the holiday. The Kreischer SunDial has actually made their menu meatless to celebrate global warming.
Then at 7:30 p.m. you can find an Earth Day Panhel presentation. At the presentation you can learn about how the City of Bowling Green is working on the green revolution and construction. They encourage you to bring your questions and to get involved!
Take action this Earth Day. As Always, Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.
I am currently a senior at Bowling Green State University. I will graduate this year with a degree in Journalism and minor in sociology. I grew up in a household where recycling was the only way of life. After coming to college, I remained faithful to my ways. I still contiunued to recycle without my parents telling me to do so. I started this blog to show how easy it is to recycle on a college campus and what kind of benefits it has for the world.
