Happy Earth Day! Once a year, on this special day, we all take the time to appreciate our planet. If you’re keen on historical facts, you should know that Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970 — that was 46 years ago! Ok, but what’s the connection between Earth Day and temporary tattoos, you might wonder?
Together with the other ways we’ll discuss below, temporary tattoos are just another means to help others go green while also celebrating the Earth on her special day.
When it comes to the environmental changes we should all embark on, there are many ways to help our mother nature. You can show your support by planting trees, cleaning beaches, walking to work instead of driving, saving water, or by taking a few minutes to research ways to be more eco-friendly and reduce your carbon footprint.
Even wearing temporary tattoos with Earth Day themes can be a thoughtful way to educate others on the importance of going green and a means to show your respect for this planet we all call home.
And if you want to celebrate with your friends and the other individuals who, just like you, wish to protect the environment, check out EarthDay.org for information on events going on near you!
