Go through the house and talk about which products are recyclable or reusable. Plant a tree and enjoy nature On Earth Day clean up trash at a stream or nature setting, or plant a tree. Trees create oxygen for us to breathe. Watch “Polly Bear’s Earth Day” (for younger kids) at Earth Day TV  or “Learn about Earth Day” (for older kids/adults) at .
