Plant a Tree for Earth Day 

April 18, 2016

Earth Day will be celebrated this year on April 22nd. It is one of the most important days of the year for celebrating our earth and showing how we need to take action to protect our future generations. So what better way to do this than by getting your children involved by planting a tree?

Why Planting a Tree Is a Great Way to Celebrate Earth Day

Did you know there are more trees on earth than stars in the Milky Way? Trees are the essence of life. They symbolize the history and enigmatic presence of our earth in ways which we cannot begin to comprehend. But what we do know is how important they are for our quality of air, the abundance of wildlife, the richness of our soil and stability of our future.

Our children can cultivate and develop the footprints of our habits and actions. For this reason, it is important to show them the value and significance of our environment. Planting a tree can be the best way to achieve this. Together as a family, you can get your hands messy, dig in the dirt, hold the seedling of a tree, place it in the ground and years from that moment, watch it grow.

This is the perfect way to add some fun while doing something great for your community and your earth. By doing something hands-on and fun, it can have a lasting and memorable impact for the entire family.

Where Can We Plant a Tree?

Take a look in your local newspaper or do a quick search online at some of your neighbourhood hotspots that are generally known for hosting great eco-friendly activities or outdoor events. Chances are those places will have Earth Day activities such as tree planting, where the whole family can participate and do something great for the environment, together. Of course, you can also plant a tree on your own property and watch it grow as your family does.

Teaching our kids the importance of Earth Day is the first step. Showing them the importance of taking actions that will have long-lasting impacts that will help our earth, is the most important step. Planting a tree can be one of the best ways to show them this while explaining what Earth Day represents and aims at achieving. After all, our children will become the caretakers of our planets, and there’s no better way to get them started than by holding a piece of it in their hands and planting it for the benefit of their future.
