It's Earth Day! What Are You Doing For The Planet?

Things to do on Earth Day It's Earth Day (as if you didn't know), which is a day of much pride and hope here at the Sierra Club. We're curious to know what our readers are doing to protect the environment today. If you didn't have plans in that realm, we not only urge you to reconsider, but we're providing five ideas to get you going:

1. Find your local Sierra Club chapter and see how you can be of service.

2. Pick up litter and help clean up a waterway or a beach.

3. Sponsor a wild place.

4. Spend time teaching a child about nature and why it's important to preserve the Earth.

5. Just sit in your favorite outdoor spot, enjoy it, and contemplate how your world would be a litte dimmer without it.

Tell us: What are you doing to go green today?
