4 Suggestions for Celebrating Earth Day in Your Town

Do you love where you live? While you may feel spacey sometimes, it’s likely that you’re living life on our lovely planet earth. Give the earth some love this Earth Day and every day by celebrating Earth Day with your friends, family, and neighbors.

When Is Earth Day?

Mark your calendars! Every year, people celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd. This celebration doesn’t jump around like Father’s Day or Easter, so you’ll always know when to plan.

1. Host a Green Living Party or Parade

Spring and summer are the season of parades and outdoor parties. As you kick off the season of outdoor celebrations, shut down a street in your neighborhood and hold a kid-friendly, bike-friendly party. Invite a local beekeeper, gardener, or animal rescue society to show off what they do and get the children and other neighbors interested as well. Make your party as green as possible by serving local, organic food, aiming for low-waste treats, and composting and recycling when you can’t divert the waste. Your sustainable style could last through the rest of the summer party season.

2. Plan to Plant or Host a Clean Up

Earth day and the week around it is often a time when communities come together to clean up and upgrade their neighborhoods. Whether you’re planting bee and bird-friendly plants in a local lot or cleaning up a ravine, partner with other local organizations to increase your impact. Clean up and restoration organizations may have plants or equipment that you can borrow, and they can promote your event so that you’ll have plenty of volunteers. After your clean up or planting event, make sure that there’s a long term plan to keep the area clean or keep the plants watered and happy.

3. Celebrate Local Environmental Heroes

Earth Day is a wonderful day to hold an annual celebration of your neighbors’ year-round contributions to your local ecology. Do you know someone who is a dedicated animal rescue volunteer? Does your friend only throw out a bag of garbage a month? Does your elderly neighbor feed all of the birds in the neighborhood in the winter snow? Celebrate their successes, and use this celebration to fundraise for their favorite cause. Use them as an example, and others may follow enthusiastically.

4. Get to Know Your Local Ecosystems

To know a place is to love that place. Often, we’re so busy that we forget to enjoy the natural places that are right in our neighborhoods. Invite a local nature educator to take families on a walk to explore the natural places in your backyard. Use this to kick off a weekly or monthly family nature event, getting everyone outside through all of the months of the year.

Earth Day is only one day out of the year, but this special day can bring attention to the needs of your neighborhood wildlife and ecosystems. Use this opportunity to connect with nature and your neighbors, and you’ll find that Earth Day is every day in your neck of the woods.

I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.

Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!

VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.

We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
