Earth Day

In 2010, each person in the United States generated nearly 41/2 pounds of solid waste, trash every day. Around 34 percent of that waste gets recycled.

Eighty-one percent of Americans switched from regular light bulbs to energy-efficient fluorescent bulbs. Seventy percent go with reusable grocery bags instead of paper or plastic and 1.2 million American homes use solar power.

Your Question (two of them):

Do you believe Earth Day is an important day to celebrate? Why or why not?

Do you do anything to help benefit the environment on a daily or semi-daily basis?

Remember, write three to five complete sentences. Do not forget to capitalize the first letter of each sentence, and before you make your post check for spelling or grammatical errors.

  1. I think in stead of banding high school football we should change some rules, because some high school students love this sport and they want to pro-sue this as a career.

  2. I think it is a very important day to celebrate. It is important that we all remember that we need to take care of the place we live. If we don’t we could seriously harm our future and future generations as well.

  3. i think that ears cause it is are house and its the only house we have their is mo other and we need to take care of it pick the thing the people leave

  4. The biggest thing that I do that is technically “Green” is doodling on my school papers instead of using other papers. This would fall under the category of reuse except I mainly do it before I turn the papers in but sometimes I use them after that and put them in a recycle bin for the most part. Other than that I don’t do anything to help save energy or protect the environment. I use Hydrofluorescent MagicalTech that contain nuclear grade space matter.

  5. Of course i think it’s important. People need to be smart in this kind of situation you know. We NEED to do the 3 R’s..REDUCE, REUSE, AND RECYCLE. It can help our environment.

  6. Yes i think it is important. and i recycle pop cans. and for water bottles we just keep them to save money and the environment.

  7. I think it is a good day to appropriate earth and take time out of your day to help it. Although just one day won’t make the biggest difference. That is still better than nothing though.

  8. I think its important

  9. I believe that Earth day should be celebrated. We only have one Earth and yet people act like it is an unlimited resource. If we ruin this Earth, what do we have left?

  10. Yes I do think that Earth day is an important day to celebrate. Its important because it teaches people about trying to keep the Earth clean and recycle. I recycle and i change my light bulbs to the environmental ones.

  11. I do believe that Earth Day is an important day to celebrate. But, all year we should be practicing habits that we do on Earth Day. One day isn’t enough to really help the Earth. I don’t recycle things on a daily basis, but my family does recycles bottles.

  12. I think we should celebrate Earth day because we always had in the past and we just should do it. We need to improve our Earth no matter which way we do it. The things we do daily does help our environment. We reuse bottles and recycle papers everyday and this helps our environment stay the way it is now. If we stopped recycling and reusing things, our environment would be terrible and we would die.

  13. Yes, I think that Earth Day should be celebrated. Because we should love the Planet that we live on and call home. We turn off water and lights when not needed at the time. We recycle clothes instead of throwing them away.

  14. I believe that Earth Day is important because the environment gives to us so I think we should give back to it. I think that a lot of people give back to the environment. I recycle to help benefit the environment.

  15. I think that people should acknowledge that if people don’t take care of where they live it will be a dump, but I don’t think that there should be a day for the earth. If everyone throws away what they do everyday, recyclables wise, into a recycle bin everything would be cleaner. I don’t really care either way because I never do anything for Earth Day and it doesn’t concern me right now.

  16. yes i think earth day is an important day because we have to clean up the earth some times because if we don’t it is not going to be good to live on.and some thing that would benefit would be recycling plastic bottles and that would help.

  17. Yes i do think that Earth day is a important day to celebrate although most people do not celebrate it. It is important because it is meant for you to help clean up the earth and everything on it. Also it is meant for you to not use as much electricity. You can use energy saving light bulbs to help you not use as much electricity. Also go out side and do stuff like pick up waste and not use technology.

  18. Yes, I do think that Earth day is important. I think Earth day is important because it promote protecting and cleaning the Earth. We only have one Earth so it’s important we take care of it. To help out I recycle things instead of throwing them away and sometime help pick up litter along the roads.

  19. I think Earth Day is important to help keep a good environment.In my house we use fluorescent light bulbs and recycle.More people should help the earth on a daily basis rather than just doing something on Earth Day.

  20. I do believe that Earth Day is a day that is important to celebrate because throughout the world, many people are making dumb choices that they don’t realize. They also don’t realize that when they make those choices, they harm the Earth. This day is actually one of those days that people actually think smart and recycle all the stuff they use. I sometimes recycle the plastic things we use because seeming how we live out near the country, the tap water is not good to drink, so we buy our water in bottles.

  21. Yes, I do believe that Earth Day is an important day because the environment is going downhill and needs to be made healthier. I’m not a huge freak about the environment, but we need to respect the Earth and keep it clean. My family recycles, my house runs on solar energy, and I do whatever little things I can do to help.

  22. i do think earth day should be celebrated more as a holiday most people don’t look at it like there birthday or x-mas but they should. They should care more about the earth but they wont know how good it is until its gone, Fore earth day i shut off all my lights for 1 hour and + i recycle everyday.

  23. I would say that you should. The earth has been around for quite a while and we should celebrate for it.

  24. Yes, Earth day is an important day to celebrate! But we should be doing all the things we do on that day everyday to make Earth a clean environment.. I mean we do live here its all of our homes so why shouldnt we? I recycle.

  25. Yes I do think it’s an important holiday because it’s a day to make people appreciate the Earth. It’s almost like a clean up day to make it a cleaner place. My family recycles anything possible, as much as possible everyday.

  26. Yes i think Earth Day is important because I think it is a good way for people to clean up where they live and have a day to respect the fact that they have some place to live. But…i don’t think people really care about it. I don’t think that many people actually pick up i think they just treat the day as if it were a normal day.

  27. I think earth day is an important day to celebrate because the earth holds us, we should not abuse it for one day. I don’t litter but that’s everyday, so anything special is a no. One day i would love to do something but i just never have the time.

  28. I think that it is. I think that we need to have a day to clean up the earth. I recycle pretty much everything.

  29. Earth Day is an important day because we need to be aware of how we are treating the Earth. We want our planet to last as long as possible so we should take care of it. I don’t do anything special for Earth Day but I recycle whatever I can every day.

  30. I believe that it is important to celebrate earth day because it helps use remember that it is important to take care of the earth. An this day also gets more people active.besides my favorite color is green.

  31. I didn’t used to really do anything to help out the planet, but I’ve recently started making my own paper by recycling old paper that we’d normally throw out. It’s fun and easy and is a great way for me to feel like I’m helping out the environment.

  32. I think that Earth day is beneficial because it reminds us about how important the earth is and how we need to take care of it. and if we didn’t take care of the Earth at this rate we would be a lot worse than it ever is today. And yes i recycle plastics, papers, and aluminum.

  33. I think that Earth day is an important day to celebrate. I say that because we need to learn to take care of our Earth, it is the only one we have. So, we have to keep it clean. In my house we recycle papers, cans, and have energy efficient light bubls.

  34. I think yes it is an important day. The earth is our home and we need to take care of it. I recycle every now in then to help out.

  35. i don’t think so i think that there should be only one day i think it should be every day. I don’t usually eat at restaurant so that saves gas. and i recycle everyday

  36. Yes, I think Earth Day is important to celebrate. It is important to keep our earth clean and people need to realize that it takes help from everyone to maintain a clean environment. Reduce, reuse, and recycle all help us with doing this. Earth Day is very important.

  37. I think Earth day is important because its about keeping our planet healthy and safe. And it raises awareness about what we can do to help and clean our planet. That way it is safer for the generations to come.

  38. I don’t think that Earth day is a huge celebration day. Two things. The world isn’t going to last forever so we shouldn’t act like it is. Also we don’t get the day off of school. So it isn’t any kind of holiday. I just think that there isn’t a point to celebrate a day that has no bonus for us.

    • Sure the world isn’t going to last forever, but we ought to treat it well and make it a nice place to be while it does last.

  39. Yes, i do feel Earth Day is a semi-important day. I dont want to say it is important, because it is not really, well, needed. I do like it, just because it may convince people to stop littering. Thats all i really like about it. I dont like the “Going green” stuff. My view is that we couldnt even really damage our planet if we tried. A single volcano eruption puts out more “harmful” stuff than even a giant city could in a year.

  40. Yes its the one day out of 365 days that people really recycle.
    Nope never. I wish i did but im to lazy lol

  41. I think that Earth Day is s good thing, and we should keep on recycling.

  42. I do think earth day is important. It helps raise awareness for the environment. I don’t think i do anything on a semi daily basis.

  43. I do believe that earth day is important because it reminds us that we only have one earth and we should not mess up are only planet. Also it shows us what good things we can do for are planet. The things i do for the environment is recycle, turn of lights when i’m done, and turn of faucets when i’m brushing my teeth.

  44. Yes, because it helps keep our earth clean. If we don’t keep our earth clean then it will get very dirty. People should start recycling if they don’t.

  45. Yes i think that Earth Day is important because it helps people think about the cons of littering and polluting the earth. It also is a day to celebrate the planet we live on. I think that it should stay a holiday and keep being celebrated for years to come.

  46. I think that earth is good and we should do more of it to limit globe worming

  47. I think it is kind of important to celebrate Earth Day. I recycle bottles and I don’t litter.

  48. Yes, because this is a day where we reuse the things that we recycled. And i think Earth Day shows our respect to Earth, and that we really do care about our world. I recycle cans and bottles to help contribute to this.

  49. Yes Earth day is important. Because we are taking care of the earth. I recycle.

  50. I think that Earth day is very important to celebrate because if nobody celebrated it then people would be so wasteful. So Earth day helps people remember what they should be doing. I recycle bottles and milk jugs.

  51. I think that yes Earth day is an important day to celebrate, because Earth is our only home (or until we find another planet to live on) that keeps us alive. So it would be odd not to spend just one day every year celebrating our planet. Also, it would be good because we keep polluting our planet and eventually it will be unlivable, meaning we and everything living will be gone, So Earth day is good til then.

  52. yes it is an important day to celebrate it should be one of the most import day because the earth should be clean

  53. Earth day is an important day to celebrate because we should be thankful that we have this planet to live on. And we should respect it because it is the only one we have. To help out I recycle, and refrain from littering.

  54. I thinks its important because its about the earth we live on. Without it we would all be dead. My family uses the new earth safe light bulbs.

  55. I do think that Earth day is important for awareness. I do things to benefit the earth, such as recycling. I recycle my school papers and we have a recycling bin at home.

  56. I think that Earth day is very important. This is because it shows that we respect where we live. My family recycles as much as we can.

  57. I feel like Earth is is semi-important because it is important to be aware of keeping the Earth clean. We should be aware of it every day not just one day out of the year because that is not going to make a difference. People should be recycling and keep being conscious of how much trash they use per day.

  58. dont hurt the earth if the earth dies where are we goin to live mars

  59. i think that earth day is very important because we live on this plant so we need to keep it clean. but not only one day out of the year it should be every day. Keep it clean by ikameron.

  60. I think it’s okay to celebrate earth day. It is a good way to help the Earth stay clean so we can have a better environment. I don’t do anything to celebrate it. The only thing i did was help my dad do yard work but i didn’t even know it was Earth day.

  61. Yes, because we need to stop littering and throwing things away that could be recycled. I turn the water off when i brush my teeth, people could do that more…. also people could by those swirly light bubs.

  62. no comment

  63. Earth Day is important because we are taking the time to help the environment and stop wasting trash for a little bit. I recycle plastic bottles but other than that, I don’t do much.

  64. I think that Earth Day is important because we only have one Earth, and if we don’t take care of it, there will be many consequences. I also think it is important because it helps people to become more active in helping to clean the environment. I recycle as much as I can or throw away bio-degradable trash.

  65. Personally I believe that Earth Day is an important day to celebrate because it reminds us all about the importance of maintaining a healthy environment. It’s important to keep the world we live in clean because it also affects our own health. My family and I benefit the environment by recycling old pop cans. We also use the florensent light bulbs to save energy.

  66. I think we should celebrate the Earth everyday, but I do believe that Earth Day is a good day. I think it’s cool how so many people can come together to help the Earth! Yay Earth Day!

  67. I think that Earth day is an important day and should always be here on earth. Because if Earth day wasn’t a tradition then the world would be even dirtier than it is right now. what i do to help on earth day is that i will gather the garbage off the highway and put them in bags so the highway stays clean and it helps the environment.

  68. It is important because it shows we care. It is a day to give back. It shows respect to the earth

  69. Yes, i think its real important day to celibate so that a lot of trash can be picked up, and more people will help out on earth day. I think that everyone should do something to participate in earth day and helping clean up ans save energy. Yes i do things to participate, but not as much as i should.

  70. I think that it is very important to celebrate earth day because we need to start taking care of our planet. It is important to recycle because we need to save the rain forests. Everyone should use florescent light bulbs and change to solar powered energy to save more energy. What I do is recycle old homework and cereal boxes and milk jugs. A truck comes around every two weeks to pick up the recycles.

  71. Yes i think it is because its a day you have to respect the Earth. Our Earth is mistreated everyday and i think we need a day to respect it.

  72. I think that it is important to celebrate Earth Day, but I don’t think that people should do it once a year. People should do at least one thing to protect the Earth everyday. Then we wouldn’t have to worry about global warming or anything else like that.

  73. I think earth day is important because we are giving back to earth and cleaning up the trash we find on the road and etc. Another way this is good because if we didn’t have earth day our earth would be so dirty. Plus, we would spend so much more if we didn’t recycle or clean up the earth. i help out by using less water , recycling and etc.

  74. I do think Earth Day is important. It’s awesome to have a day of awareness. But I think we should be aware of the Earth & it’s problems every day. Not just one day out of the year, but everyday. The only way we can make a positive change is if we all work together every day.

  75. yes because you have to save the earth. if we don’t we wont have it for long. i clean my yard and help out.

  76. I think earth day is important to celebrate. It’s important because is raises awareness about our environment. I recycle pop cans and plastic bottles.

  77. i think it is important to celebrate earth day because it makes more people aware that we need to treat earth better. It also shows people that we can really make a difference and help our earth. My family recycles cans and plastic bottles.

  78. I really don’t think there should be ONE day of the year where we should take care of the Earth. We should everyday. I try to not leave lights on and turn off the water when I’m not using it. Also I try not to litter.

  79. I think it is important to make sure that you don’t litter and recycle as much as you can. I don’t think that dumpster diving for food that people throw out is a way to help save the environment, food decomposes anyway. My family recycles as much as we can and as long as we can remember to. I also turn off the water when i brush my teeth.

  80. yes of course for reasons much like posin ivys in the batman movie.more people help out on this day than any other when you do something bad fate has a funny way of dealing with it.i dont ever liter ive pick up trash as well.

  81. Yes, I think Earth Day should be celebrated. Usually I don’t do anything for Earth Day, but this year I was planning on shortening 5 minutes of running water in my house (showers, doing dishes, etc.) I was also going to find any papers around my house that I don’t need, and I was going to recycle them, along with plastic bottles.

  82. I do think Earth day is worth celebrating. I think a lot of the times we take advantage of a lot of things that Earth provides for us. Earth day is a day when we can realize all of the things Earth provides for us and not take advantage of them. I think that a lot of people don’t really pay as much attention to it as they should.

  83. To me earth day is not important. I do not do anything on earth day. I have had florescent lights in my room.

  84. i think earth day is good. i think we need one every month or one every few months. i think people should do the things on earth day every day and not just because its a day people say to do it. my family puts a pine tree in our back yard every year.

  85. I think Earth Day is an important day to celebrate because it is important to keep the environment clean and safe. I recycle plastic bottles and cans to help the environment.

  86. Yes, I do think it earth day is important to celebrate. To keep our world going, we have to take care of it. If we don’t take care of it, it will eventually stop functioning. I do help the environment by not littering, by using florescent lights and by saving energy by either shutting off lights or taking quicker showers.

  87. Yes earth day is a good thing to celebrate because i think it inspires people to clean up the earth and keep it clean, i think the world could benefit in many ways from earth day,but mainly just keeping the world clean.

  88. I think Earth day is good for many reasons. But it shouldn’t just count for one day, everyone should be helping the earth every day because we all live here. I try not to throw stuff on the ground and i recycle much as i can.

  89. I think that Earth Day is an important day to celebrate. I think this because by having this day, it can cause awareness of what’s happening in our environment. We can switch to healthier things for our planet. I don’t do anything to help the environment on earth day.

  90. I think Earth day is a very important holiday to celebrate. Earth day helps aware people of what we are really doing to our earth and how we’re affecting it. I try to recycle whenever i can to try to help out. I always turn off the lights whenever someone isn’t in a room. It’s my biggest pet peeve when people leave the lights on when they’re not in the room.

  91. I feel Earth day is important to celebrate to give back to the place that gives us our materials to live. What i do help keep our planet clean is i don’t litter and try to pick up things like plastic baggies i see flying around.

  92. Earth Day is an important day to celebrate because you are using things that have been recycled and you don’t just throw stuff away and you can reuse it so you aren’t polluting. You could also clean up so places are cleaner. I didn’t do anything yesterday.

  93. I think it is important to celebrate Earth Day because it is important to have a healthy environment. I recycle papers at school.

  94. I do think that Earth Day is an incredibly important day to celebrate. We owe the earth so much, and dedicating just one day to her is not enough. We need to do more to take care of our earth. On a daily basis I try to always turn off lights and unplug things that are not being used. I always encourage my family to recycle, and not be wasteful.

  95. I think that Earth Day is an important day to celebrate because you are using things that have been recycled and you don’t just throw stuff away and you can reuse it so you aren’t polluting. You could also clean up so places are cleaner. I didn’t do anything really yesterday. I could have, but I didn’t.

  96. I kinda think Earth day should be celebrated everyday, since we live on the Earth everyday. The least we should do is take care of it the best we can. Not really, i should but I don’t, I recycle paper as much as I can at school. If that counts.

  97. I think that earth day is important to keep a healthy envierment. It is also important because the trees and plants in the environment produce oxygen so we can breath. My family recycles old cans to help the environment.

  98. It is a good idea to celebrate Earth Day because the Earth will be a huge mess and life would cease to end in mass quantities if trash covered the planet. Think about the children of your children and how their lives can be affected by the choices you make today. Every day should be Earth Day though. However, people should not go crazy and feel like they are doing a great service, only to litter the very next day. We should all do our part keeping the planet consistently clean.

  99. I do think its important to celebrate earth day because everybody can recycle. Also it is helping to clean up the environment. Lastly because everybody wants to live on a clean planet.

  100. I think earth day is a very important day to celebrate. We need to keep are world clean. To many people trash it. I think it should be earth day everyday.

  101. I think earth day is a good day to celebrate because on this day we care more about pollution. If we didn’t have earth day we wouldn’t have a holiday celebrating the earth and how important it is. I only throw trash away in the garbage instead of just throwing it everywhere and polluting the earth.

  102. I believe that is important that we celebrate Earth Day. I think this because many people forget to appreciate everything we have and the environment. I don’t use my lights or watch T.V during Earth Day.

  103. I think its very important to participate in and know about it. This is our planet and we need to keep it clean as much as we can, even a little bit can help. A lot of people don’t realize that if they use something that’s earth friendly instead of something that’s not it is making a difference.

  104. I think we should not celebrate earth day. If we did it more often, we wouldn’t need it. That shows we dont pollute as much and we already do what we do on earth day every day.

    #Revolution

  105. I think Earth day is not really an important day to celebrate because nothing important happened that day. I recycle pop bottles and paper.

  106. I believe that Earth Day is an important day to celebrate because it reminds us all about the importance of maintaining a healthy environment. It’s important to keep the world we live in clean because it also affects our own health. My family and I benefit the environment by recycling old pop cans. We also use those twisty light bulbs to save energy.

  107. Well I do think that earth day is important but some people use it for not even what it it’s really for which is clean up what we are doing wrong. A lot of company’s are making money off the enviorment saving day which is just wrong.

  108. I think that it is important to celebrate because it shows that we have respect for earth the very planet that gives us life. In order to do this we need to save energy and not pollute. We do this by recycling, using energy star products.

  109. Yes, I believe that Earth day is an important day to celebrate because it rises awareness of the need to recycle and take care of the Earth. During Earth day people help clean up it more than usual and learn new ways to take care of the Earth.

  110. I believe Earth day is an important day to celebrate because we should take care of our planet. Every year more trash and pollution is made and I think we should spend some time to clean it up. The earth gives us so much its time we gave back by cleaning it up.

  111. Yes, I think Earth Day is important because I think it is good to inform people about the way they are living and how it affects the environment. We use energy saving light bulbs and re-use our grocery bags. Its a day to clean and help the earth

  112. I believe it is important to celebrate earth day because we need to have day where you are aware about the environment. Also people help do things the wouldn’t normally do like plant trees and clean up trash and stuff. I kind of do things to help the environment on a daily basis. I recycle pop cans and bottles. I also use the swirly light bulbs in my house and I don’t waste water and stuff. I don’t do a lot of things that help the environment but I guess I do some things.

  113. Yes, i feel that Earth Day is an important day that everyone should celebrate. If more people celebrated this date more people would be aware of whats going on in the environment. Also my family and I recycle a lot, such as cans, cardboard and paper.

  114. Yes earth day is important. its a good thing to practice and it will help the earth out. I recycle sometimes and that helps out.

  115. Yes and no, it really depends on the persons view. Also sometimes it could be making a situation worse then it already is. If you do love love the environment then it is definatley for you. No i do not personally take part in the activities of earth day or really help it out at all.

  116. I think that Earth Day is an important day to celebrate because you are using things that have been recycled and you don’t just throw stuff away and you can reuse it so you aren’t polluting. You could also clean up so places are cleaner. I didn’t do anything really yesterday. I could have, but I didn’t.

  117. well i think that ever day should be earth day we need to do mare to keep it clean and safe for the other people that need it i don’t think that once a year is the right amount of time we should be spending on it when it is a on going problem

  118. Yes, I think that earth day is very important day to have but i don’t think that it should be only once a year. We should do the same stuff that we do on earth day like; recycling or cleaning up your neighbor hood. If we all do these little things we could make the world a safer and cleaner place.

  119. Yeah I think Earth Day is important because it’s one day of the year where you can actually care for it and it can inspire others to do it every day. I think it helps us as people to see the importance in cleaning up the Earth and to see that if we don’t start now then it might be to late.

  120. I think that earth day can be important in a way but most of the things that your supposed to do on earth day are just common sense. I think that the tree huger’s make a big deal out of something that isn’t as bad as they are making it sound. I don’t understand how people still believe that pollution and global warming are still a big deal. I do do things however that are good for the earth like I don’t just through all my garbage in the street or any of that so I guess you could say that is helping out.

  121. I think that earth day is good and we should keep it. It is a day to clean rivers, lakes and switch to environmental friendly things. But I think that we should be cleaning our earth everyday not just once a year.

  122. I believe that Earth day is important so that we can take care of the place that we are living in. Recycling is a big thing that we do at our house. I think more businesses and organizations should stress recycling.

  123. I don’t think that earth day is important. The plants don’t have enough C02 so i think if anything there should be a day where everyone drives there car so that we can feed the plants. Ill recycle bottles, plastic and also papers that aren’t needed, example: homework

  124. I think Earth Day is important to celebrate because people could recycle more products like milk bottles and jugs to have less waste thrown away in our country. We help the environment by using our empty Gatorade bottles into water bottles and storing them in out fridge and not throwing them away.

  125. Earth day is an important day but I think that if there was more awareness towards it if people want it to be celebrated. I used plastic bags as trashed bags.

  126. I do think that earth day is very important because all of the garbage needs to be picked up. I dont normally do anything to help but i help by not littering or anything like that.

  127. I think that earth day is good to be celebrated but I think that we should always be having earth day. I think that people should recycle more and make the earth a better place to live on. doing this we could safe a bunch of money. We should always take care of Earth!!

  128. Yes, i think earth day is an important day to celebrate. Its a day to show respect for the earth we live on that gets trashed daily from people who don’t keep the earth clean like were supposed to. The earth doesn’t clean itself, we all need to pitch in to help keep our earth clean together so in the future we aren’t living in our own garbage.

  129. I think that earth day is an important day to celebrate because we live on the earth and our job is to keep it clean. By having earth day celebrated it helps remind people to clean the earth. I recycle milk jugs and with remains of fruits and vegetable we put them in a compost pile. We also cut down on trash by putting papers to recycle. I save energy by shutting off lights when I leave a room and shutting off the TV when I’m not watching it.

  130. I believe Earth Day is important, because we live on the earth and we need to take care of it. If we don’t do anything now it will affect the earth in the future and there will be nothing we could do about it. I would use old containers for plants, or we could recycle paper, or even cutting down anything that is old so something new can grow to replace it.

  131. I think that Earth day is an important day to celebrate because we have a lot of pollution in the world. I recycle old pop bottles, plastic bags and such. I love nature and help recycle in my community sometimes by picking up trash at the local park.

  132. I don’t think Earth Day is important to celebrate. It’s great that people are recycling and taking care of the planet on which they live, but you don’t need to dedicate a day to that cause, in my opinion. On a regular basis I recycle things that are able to be recycled and I throw my trash away in containers, I don’t just drop it anywhere. That would be littering, and it harms the environment.

  133. I think that Earth Day is great to do more then what we normally do. I think that even though there is one day to help clean the Earth is great but people shouldn’t just stop there they should help keep the Earth daily. I recycle and if I see a piece of trash on the ground I pick it up and through it away usually.

  134. Yes, earth day is important to celebrate because it reminds us that we need to save our planet but we can do it in simple ways. My family uses the energy saving light bulbs for every light we have. Also, we recycle all of our plastic and paper products so we don’t have to throw much away.

  135. Well since my grandma isnt able to get out into her yard and plant flowers, me and my mom went over to do it for her. We dig up a garden for her, she as really happy. After that we trimmed her trees.

  136. Yes, I think Earth Day is an important day because it’s the one day most people do things differently to better our world. I don’t really do anything to benefit the environment. But I know that I should start to.

  137. I think it is important. It’s a day for people to show how much they care about the earth. Yes, i recycle pop cans and bottles.

  138. My honest opinion is that I don’t think we should celebrate it. Its a little bit of a waste of time. My mom recycles a little bit but for the most part we just throw stuff away.

    • I disagree to a point. I think that we should recycle and things like that but we don’t need to celebrate Earth Day but people if they want to do more then what they would do on a daily basis but people don’t has to feel obligated to.

    • If we don’t celebrate earth day then the world will fill with trash and we will be stuck living in it.

  139. I think that Earth day is important. It’s a day that we can take care of the Earth, and clean it up. Because most people litter, and don’t care. So, for those of us who do care about the Earth, we can clean it up, and make it a better healthier place to live.

  140. Yes because earth day is like giving appreciation to the world that we live on. And I don’t do anything on earth day because sometimes I have to work, and on other days I am busy with my family like eating out etc. depending on whether we can do things as a family.

  141. I think that earth day is an important day to celebrate because we get to try and clean up the earth around us. It also helps the animals who live in the wild be healthy and happy with where they live. I try to remember to recycle every time I use a water bottle or paper. I don’t always remember but i try to.

  142. I believe Earth Day is important because it gives us a day to recognize our planet and the condition it is in. I recycle plastic bottles and turn off all of the lights in rooms when they’re not being used.

  143. I think Earth day needs to be celebrated because we all live in it and we need to give back to save energy and our earth. We should be recycling everyday but especially today.

  144. I believe every day should be earth day because we always should take care of the planet we live on or we will no longer have it in healthy conditions. We should recycle more and invent and use more energy efficient items and objects. My family recycles plastics and metals, that’s what I do for earth day.

  145. Yes, I think that Earth Day is important because you should keep our planet clean. I recycle newspaper and plastic bottles and all that.

  146. i think that it is a good thing to celebrate. and yes when i see trash on the ground i will pick it up and i return bottles and they recycle them.

  147. Personally, I think every day should be “Earth Day”. I say this because people should always be trying to help the earth. Most of the time it’s just very small things that make a huge difference. For instance, I have a recycling bin at my house that I use multiple times a day. If people could do these simple things, the earth would be in much better shape.

  148. I think that Earth Day is an important day to celebrate because it encourages people and reminds them that we need to take care of the Earth. Every day needs to be considered as earth day, because we should do things and take care of the earth every day, just as we do on earth day. To help take care of the earth you can recyle, &turn off lights if you’re not in a room.

  149. I think it is is very important that we are aware of the status of our earth. I don’t mean just the big things like climate problems, but I mean eve little things like recycling. everyone should care about the place that they live on. lets not treat our home like a trash heap.

  150. yes i think it is an important day to celebrate because we need to be aware of our atmosphere and stop global warming. I help the planet by when i see a piece of garbage on the street or somewhere that it shouldn’t be i pick it up and through it in the nearest trash, even if there isn’t a trash near by, i will throw it away later.

  151. Yes it is a good day to realize how important the environment is here on Earth. People need to recycle more plastic. I recycle cans and don’t litter.

  152. I think that earth day is a good day to practice, due to the fact that the ocean being filled with garbage and more we should teach people how to take part in helping the environment. We should not spend that much money on it. Global warming in my opinion is not the way people make it out to be. I do not really help the environment.

  153. Yes, I do believe Earth Day is an important day to celebrate because it reminds people what we need to do to keep the Earth clean. Ways I help the environment is through using energy-efficient florescent bulbs and I when go to the store, we bring our own bags instead of using plastic bags. If we all work together we can cut down on a lot of waste & pollution on the Earth.

  154. Well, Earth Day should not be celebrated on only one day. We should be doing those things every day. Having one day where you plant trees is not going to be as effective if everybody plants trees more often. People should be recycling everyday. All people should use the reusable grocery bags and have energy efficient light bulbs. I do somethings on a semi-daily basis.

  155. Yes i think it is important to celebrate, if we don’t take care of the planet we wont have one to live on, that’s sanitary anyway. On a daily basis, i recycle cans and try to reuse plastic bottles that I’ve gotten from the store.

  156. I think earth day is very important, because everyone litters to much and it needs to be picked up. So, yesterday a lot was recycled and put into its proper place. I do recycle sometimes, also i will turn off lights if i can.

  157. I do think earth day is a day to celebrate. I think we should celebrate it because it reminds people to help the environment the best they can, and not to forget about it. What I do on a daily bases to help the environment is turn off lights in a room if no one is in there and little things like that.

  158. i think that earth day is important because it helps the Eco system. I recycle every day.

  159. I don’t think it is that important because we have bigger problems than that. Like how people don’t have clean water or good health that would seem more important than earth day.

  160. Do you believe Earth Day is an important day to celebrate? Why or why not? I think it is or it would be if more people did it.

    Do you do anything to help benefit the environment on a daily or semi-daily basis? i recycle bottles and cans. And we try to reuse anything we can.

  161. Earth day promotes responsibility, thankfulness, and respect for the planet we inhabit. It is necessary by all means. I recycle multiple objects during the span of a year.

  162. Do you believe Earth Day is an important day to celebrate? Why or why not?
    This is yet another topic i don’t have strong opinions on, and flat out don’t care. Do what you want i guess, if that’s what floats your boat, go plant some trees, I’m not stopping you. There shouldn’t just be one day out of the year to do something that’s a poor excuse.

  163. I think Earth day is an important day to celebrate. People take advantage of our planet and we should have at least one day to celebrate it. Everyone needs to be aware of how to keep it cleaner and be aware of pollution. I didn’t do anything yesterday to help the Earth, but my family recycles.

  164. I think earth day is an important day to celebrate. It make people become aware of the pollution in the country. I use florescent light bulbs and recycle bottles.

  165. I think Earth day is an important day that more people should participate in. I think this because, it helps more our world a better place to live, also it would help with saving a lot of animals. My family switched some of our light bulbs to florescent light bulbs, but other than that I really don’t do anything to help the earth.

  166. I think Earth day is a very important day to celebrate. It reminds us to respect the planet we live on and keep the environment safe and healthy. If everyone just pitched in, in some way, it could make our planet a whole lot better. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! For instance, I recycle a lot! Our family also uses the fluorescent light bulbs. Earth day is just a single day out of the year reminding us of what we should do to contribute to Earth, but everyone should do the little things every single day to help our environment. “Go Green!”

  167. i do not think earth day is an important day to celebrate but i also do think that it is important because, why it is not important is because people don’t really care about earth and they pollute and stuff like that. i do think it is important because, earth is our home and its the one thing that’s keeping us alive and i do support the people who are taking care of our home.

  168. Not really considering one day about it is helping it when people could just be doing small things every day.

    Not really unless recycling and stuff counts but other than that nothing at all.

  169. I think that earth day is a good day to celebrate because, we’re helping the earth and making it a better place to live. And my family does recycle pop cans and bottles.

  170. I think that earth day is a good day to celebrate because people need to be reminded that our earth needs to be clean. I didn’t do anything this earth day but im happy that a lot of other people did.

  171. Yes, I do believe Earth day is an important day to celebrate because we need to take care of our Earth so everyone’s lives are healthier. If we just treated the Earth as a giant trash can everyone would probably die very soon because of the pollutants and what not in the air. To help benefit the Earth I do not litter and we recycle the old oils.

    • I agree that we need to take care of Earth because of pollution. It’s important that we do things such as recycle like you said and keep the environment healthy!

      • I agree to but right now everyone is using the earth as a giant trash can. I think this is why people should help to clean up the earth and keep it that way.

  172. I think earth day is very important to celebrate because it is a day devoted to the planet that we have lived on since forever. Its a day that we can use to go out and keep the earth clean and prosperous.

  173. I think that it’s important to celebrate Earth day because it is a day where everyone recycles and takes care of the Earth and such. My family and i recycle cans, clean up trash that is around us and use the energy saving light bulbs.

  174. I think that Earth day is an important day to celebrate, because our planet is our biggest most prized possession. I sometimes will walk through the woods and pick up various articles of trash. We need to clean the Earth because if we don’t we’re disrespecting our home.

    • Yes, if we don’t clean up the trash we leave then might as well live in a dump because that’s what our world will be like if we don’t take care of it.

  175. i dont really think earth day is that great there is no point barly anyone celebrates it anyways.

    the thing i do to help the enviorment is resycle

  176. i think that earth day is a good thing to celebrate, because it shows and teaches people ways that they can take care of the earth with things that they do every day. some of the things that you can do to protect the earth is to recycle bottles and paper things.

  177. Yes, I think that Earth Day is important because we have to be reminded that we have to take care of our planet. I don’t do anything for Earth Day but I know some things that we can do. We can recycle plastic and plant new trees.

  178. I dont think we should not celebrate earth day. Only because most celebrating involves parties and having parties arnt gonna help save the earth. I think we should be aware of earth day and act on it. But we should be “helping” the earth everyday and just not one day a year. At my house we have a compost pile instead of throwing everything in the trash.

    • I agree because most people pretend that they care every single day on Earth day, and how’s that going to help the earth by pretending you care one day a year?

  179. Yes because we can do a lot to change this earth and its environment we can pull dead weeds out of the ground , throw away trash , clean up and recycle things , and stop littering the earth. If this is where we live i think that we should keep it clean no one wants to live in a dirty place that they call home . And yes , I ust plastic water bottles over again and refill them i pick up trash that i see , i recycle pop bottles . (:

  180. I think that earth day is an important holiday because increases awareness of how bad our earth is getting and could get if we don’t do something for it. My mom works with renewable energy as a career mostly in wind energy and I like to think that she is making a difference but I don’t do all that much to be green.

  181. I believe that it is important. But i don’t really think that it changes too many peoples minds on how they recycle or if they don’t. Its a good thing to do but it doesn’t change people that much. I did participate on earth day.

  182. I do think Earth day is important so more people have more knowledge of what going on in our environment. I usually recycle pop bottles, plastic or cardboard.

  183. I believe that Earth day is a good day to celebrate. I think this because if we start caring about the earth not then we could prevent some of the global warming. I personally don’t do anything though.

  184. Yes, earth day is very important because we need to put out awareness to keep a good environment. We need more citizens to recycle and dispose of trash properly. We only have one earth and we need to treat it with respect. There are many things you can recycle like cans, bottles, newspaper, milk jugs, flower pot, etc…..

  185. I think earth day is important to celebrate. I think that we need to remind ourselves to keep the planet healthy because we only get one. Even though I think earth day is important i don’t really do anything. My family has been using reusable bags, and we recycle stuff regularly but that’s just about it.

  186. I believe Earth day is an important day to celebrate because it is a day that shows what the Earth’s state is. It is not hard to help keep the world clean. You can pick up trash or recycle, you don’t have to go above and beyond. It’s the little things that help to make big things in the future. My family recycles a lot of our plastic jugs and our newspapers.

  187. i do believe every one should participate bin earth day to help out the environment

  188. I think that earth day is important. I think this because this is the only world that we have to live on. I try to do something good for the earth every day like recycle old pop cans or bottles.

  189. I think that earth day should not be celebrated. But if it gets me off of school we should. Every day should be earth day. So why would we need a holiday. It should be an awareness day to help the earth.

  190. Do you believe Earth Day is an important day to celebrate? Not really, it’s kind of pointless. It’s just something the hippies invented to make rich people realize we’re killing the earth and we need to appreciate the supplies provided for us and not take it for granted.
    Do you do anything to help benefit the environment on a daily or semi-daily basis? I use those twisty light bulbs and recycle and stuff.

  191. I think it is important to celebrate because we live here. When we have guests at our house we want it to look good so we can impress them not show them all the trash we keep around the house. Yes I recycle anywhere I can.

  192. Yes I do believe that earth day should be celebrated. Because we live on the earth and I don’t want to live on a pile of trash. And i do recycle on a daily basis at home.

  193. yes, because it is a important day for us to help clean up our great world that we have. I usually just recycle everyday, i don’t change anything on earth day.

  194. I do not celebrate earth day nor do I have any opinion on it. I am not a scientist and I do not know the state of the environment, therefore any opinion I may have of it would be misguided.

  195. yes i do think it is important to celeabrate earth day so we remember we have to recspect the planet

  196. I kinda think that earth day is stupid. I don’t think there should just be one day that people really do this. It should be everyday. Most people anyway usually already do this so why have a day all about it.

  197. I think Earth Day is an important day to celebrate because it reminds people that our world isn’t invincible and it needs to be taken care of. It’s a great reminder to those that are wasteful to be more respectful to our earth and treat its resources as such. My waste management system recycles my family’s paper and plastic products and I take bottles and cans to bottle returns at the stores. Sometimes we use reusable grocery bags at the store.

  198. I don’t think that Earth Day is important but we should still have it. Even though I don’t celebrate it, it’s still good to do this for the planet. Maybe if we make a national holiday where everyone gets off school more people would participate

  199. I think that it’s important to be environmentally-conscious, but not just for a day. If the only time you recycle or try to save energy is on Earth Day. you aren’t doing much good. Educating people is more what they should be focusing on that day.

  200. I don’t think Earth Day is an important day to celebrate. Not very many people celebrate it, including myself. I guess it depends on who wants to celebrate it, and who doesn’t. I don’t really do anything to help benefit the environment. I spend most of my time inside on a daily basis

  201. earth day is a day that we need to use to help our earth. we need earth day because it reminds us that our earth is important and we need to take care of it instead of pialing it up with trash. we need to become award on earth day and celebrate the work we do that day for our mother earth.

  202. I think that it is important to celebrate Earth Day because it promotes recycling and doing different things for the environment. This is important because if you are the helping the Earth, then you are helping your world which in the end will help with resources like paper and oil and water. Since my dad’s a big recycling freak, we recycle everything in our house that can possibly be recycled.

  203. Earth Day is an extremely important holiday. It is a day to remind us to keep our planet clean and make sure it stays that way for a long time. I help out every day on Earth Day by planting a new tree in my yard every year. Since there isn’t a recycling truck that goes around my street, I bring my families paper waste to the school and recycle it there.

  204. I think that it is important to celebrate Earth Day because its a day where people have to take care of the Earth and recycle things like cans or plastic. I recycled pop cans and i cleaned trash that was in my yard. When we throw things away it just gets all pilled up and sits there.

  205. I think that earth day is a very important day to celebrate. It spreads awareness of the current situation that our world is in. We are in great danger of over polluting our world. On earth day I was sure not to use as much water as I usually do. I believe this helped our earth, and my parent’s water bill.

  206. I don’t think Earth day is important because why should we take just one day to clean up the earth. We should be cleaning it up like we clean our houses. Earth day is like valentines day, in terms of you shouldn’t need just one day to show you love someone or to plant a tree or change to solar power you should be doing that all along.

    • Yes, people should be conserving all year long, but sometimes it’s too much of a hassle or they forget and Earth Day reminds everyone to treat the earth kindly like they should.

  207. I do think that Earth Day is important to recognize because it reminds people that even simple things make a difference to improve the quality of the environment. I think this is especially important in countries like China, where the government does little to protect the quality of the environment. I don’t do anything specifically on Earth day, but do simple things like shutting off lights and using florescent bulbs.

  208. I think that earth day is somewhat important, but it is not that big of a deal. I feel that our society has become extremely aware on our environment, and I feel that everyday people are always trying to “go green”. Products in stores are always bragging about being eco friendly, and it seems that consumers love to see these words. A great example of how earth day is no longer important is that when we were in elementary school and even early middle school, we did activities in science explaining how to make the earth more clean. Now, it is just another day at school. I feel that a lot of people do recycle on a daily basis, including myself. We recycle plastics and paper when we throw things out. We also use energy efficient light bulbs made of recycled glass.

  209. Yes, I do believe Earth Day is an important day to celebrate because it reminds people what we need to do to keep the Earth clean. Ways I help the environment is through using energy-efficient florescent bulbs instead of regular light bulbs and when my mom & I go to the store, we bring our own bags instead of using plastic bags. If we all work together we can cut down on a lot of waste & pollution on the Earth.

  210. its should not be a day because if people really cared about the earth so much they would stop driving cars stop polluting the air

  211. I believe Earth Day is an important day to celebrate because some people don’t care about the only planet that we have in our galaxy that is inhabitable. and that’s sad because if we don’t care about earth, whose to say we will care about any other planet? Unfortunately I don’t even do anything to help benefit the environment on a daily basis. its a human mentality of, I don’t care right now, and it bothers me.

  212. I’m not sure what you mean by celebrate, what are we celebrating? the fact that many americans are to lazy to recycle, so tons of recyclable materials are going into land fills every year? and yes i do recycle newspaper and bottles.

  213. Earth Day is, in my opinion, a pretty important holiday because it raises awareness about the dire situation the planet is in environmentally. However, many people only do environmental things and actions on Earth Day, and I believe being environmentally friendly is something that people should work on year round. Personally, our family recycles plastic, paper, cardboard, glass, batteries, etc, takes reusable bags to grocery store, and we try to drink tap water as much as possible. It isn’t much, but if everyone put their best foot forward, the world would be a better place.

  214. Yes i believe that earth day is a important day to celebrate. It is important because we need to do as much as we can to make earth a better place to live. I always take cans and bottles to be recycled daily.

  215. Yes i think that Earth Day is a very important day to celebrate. It is the one day out of the entire year that is dedicated to cleaning up the earth and making it better. This is supposed to be 3-5 sentences, and i don’t know another one, so this….is…it.

  216. I do not think that earth day is that important because not a lot of people are going to pick up trash all the time when someone litters. I think that recycling is a good idea and all but not everyone does it. Our earth is always going to have trash and we will never be able to get rid of it, so why waste your time???????

  217. I don’t think earth day is important to celebrate because we are all going to DIE on 12/21/12. I think everyone should just get 1 million$ to spend on whatever they want for there last few months on earth.

  218. Do you believe Earth Day is an important day to celebrate? Why or why not?
    Sure it is. It is important because people around the world need to respect the place they live on and learn how to keep it clean. If people didn’t care about the earth it wouldn’t be such a nice place today.
    Do you do anything to help benefit the environment on a daily or semi-daily basis?
    I recycle at school often and at home. As well as using solar energy at our house.

  219. i think that earth day is an important day to celebrate because we owe the earth a day of thanks! We live here and use her resources, so we should give back to her.

  220. I think earth day is important but i don’t really do much to support it. I don’t pollute the earth in the first place but on this day i try my best to not litter and i help whatever way i can.

  221. I think it is an important day to celebrate because on this day lots of people go outside and help the environment and it makes a difference. I don’t do much for the environment. I only have those spiral light bulbs and that’s about it.

  222. Earth day is an important day that should be celebrated because more and more trash is being carelessly thrown out wherever, but steps should be taken everyday to prevent pollution instead of once a year.

  223. I think Earth day is important because not everyone notices how they are helping or hurting the Earth on a daily basis, but Earth day gives them a chance to help. I don’t do anything to help Earth day, but I think it’s good that some people take part in it.

  224. Yes because our Earth gives us so much, and we need to give back in respect for our planet. A few ways I give back to the Earth is at my house we have a compost pile in the back yard, so we don’t throw away the scraps of our veggies and fruit, and we also fertilize our gardens that way, and my family and i recycle plastics, styrofoam and other things that don’t decompose quickly.

  225. I think Earth day is an important day for the Earth. We should celebrate and help keep the Earth clean on a daily basis but a certain day to celebrate it really helps to get more people to keep the Earth clean. If we don’t keep the Earth clean than we would have to live in a dirty environment and it would be bad for everyone. I do help out around the house and cut the grass and make it look nice.

  226. Do you believe Earth Day is an important day to celebrate? Why or why not?

    I do believe Earth Day is important to celebrate. It keeps our world safe from disease and keeps it clean for us.

    Do you do anything to help benefit the environment on a daily or semi-daily basis?

    I turn off the lights and the water when no one is using them to safe energy and money so we can use it for more important environmental issues.

  227. I think that it is important because it helps clean up the environment. It keeps are resources around. people need to care about the environment they live in or it wouldn’t be good.

  228. I think Earth Day is important but not really a lot of kids do anything to help. I don’t really do anything to benefit the environment besides recycle and reuse bags. There really is nothing that I could do on a daily basis besides those things.

  229. I didn’t even know that yesterday was earth day but, I think that earth day is important because without the people who clean up our earth or recycling, our earth could of been trashed and not as beautiful. I help the earth by cleaning up the
    trash that get thrown into ditches by my house.

  230. I think that earth day is important because we have to take care of earth or else we cannot live here, there will be too much pollution to breath, too much pollution in the water, and not enough trees to keep the air clean. So earth day is a day where we prevent those things from happening. And no I did not do anything. I had no idea it was earth day yesterday until just now.

  231. I think it’s a good day to celebrate. It creates more awareness of the environment and gets people to help protect the environment. I don’t really do anything besides basics like not littering and recycling.

  232. I think that earth day is important because it gets people to actual look at the environment and gets them to try and improve it. Are family recycles anything we can. We also use a lot of florescent light bulbs in are house because they last longer and use less energy. We also insulated all of are house to reduce heating and cooling coast.

  233. Yes i think that Earth day is an important day because we need a day dedicated to just help keeping the Earth clean. If we help out by recycling or just keeping everything green we can make a big difference. The way that i help out is i recycle all of my bottle’s and paper.

  234. Yes it is because myself and my peers will be on this planet for a ling time yet, and I personally would like to keep nice and clean. I always try to take quick showers in order to help in the process of going green.

  235. i don’t really think its that important because i don’t even no what they do to help the environment. no i don’t think i do anything that i can think of off the top of my head.

    • well you could turn off all the TV’s , computers, and all the other electronics and go outside or go and help a friend with a job, clean up a park, volunteer somewhere, change your light bulbs, try not to use too much water, or just become aware of just how much energy/water you use in one day,for just a few off the top of my head.

  236. I think that Earth day is important to have. Without it we would not be reminded to take steps to making this planet a cleaner place to live. I do things like recycling and using high efficient light bulbs to help reduce the amount of energy I use, witch in turn helps out the environment.

  237. Earth day should definitely be celebrated. It’s a holiday for taking better care of the planet we live on and giving back to the environment that keeps us alive. If we didn’t try to take care of Earth then one day we could be living in little more than a garbage waste land. I just try to do the little things that I can do around my house or outside, limiting running water and turning off lights.

  238. Do you believe Earth Day is an important day to celebrate? Why or why not?

    Do you do anything to help benefit the environment on a daily or semi-daily basis?

    -Yes because it is the day to give back to the Earth. It also helps us in the future and it can easily be maintained. Earth Day is a special day. I cut down on trash. recycle, don’t drive the car, and turn off all unneeded appliances.

  239. yes i think that earth day is important.I recycle a lot of things like pop cans,newspaper,and plastic.Why does earth day have to be one day.we should be recycling everyday.

  240. Yes I think it is important because it reminds us that we need to take care of the earth. Also it is a day to clean. I know some people that will clean the beaches on this day. And no I don’t do anything special on this day.

  241. Do you believe Earth Day is an important day to celebrate? Why or why not?
    Do you do anything to help benefit the environment on a daily or semi-daily basis?
    Yes, I do believe Earth Day is an important day to celebrate. I think it is important to celebrate Earth Day because it reminds everyone to treat the earth kindly, not as if it is a giant waste basket. Something my family does to help the environment is use energy saving light bulbs.

  242. I think Earth day is important to celebrate because it creates awareness for people and makes them want to help clean up the earth. If more and more people become involved in helping the environment, the bigger impact they will have. We recycle to help keep plastic ending up in landfills.

  243. I do because it shows that we still need change in the way we do things in our environment. I believe that life in the city should go more green and less “urban’ with their ways of structures. However, I don’t do anything productive for the environment daily because I simply do not have the time or interest.

  244. Yes, I do think that Earth day is an important day to celebrate because it raises awareness about keeping the planet clean and healthy for everyone. I use energy efficient light bulbs and recycle the things that can be recycled.

  245. Earth Day is important to celebrate. It represents the importance of a clean earth and how we need to do certain things to keep it clean for future generations and such. I always shut the lights off when I leave a room and I recycle all of my pop cans and bottles.

  246. i think earth day is important because it helps protect the enviornment. i dont do anything for earth day because i dont know when it is. even if i did know when earth day was i probobly still wouldnt do anything

  247. I think that Earth Day is an important day to celebrate because it help become more aware of what things they should do to help our planet. Also i think that some states should make Earth Day much more important. I do really small things to help the earth like shutting off the lights when not using them, turning the water off when brushing teeth, also using energy efficient light bulbs. I think that more people should care about how they treat the planet and we should all try to take care of it.

  248. I do believe that Earth Day is an important day to celebrate. It gets everyone in the spirit of recycling, saving energy, and just helping the earth in general. I do a few things on a daily basis to help the earth, but they’re all things that I was taught to do in elementary school. Like shutting of the lights when I leave the room, and turning of the water when I’m in the middle of brushing my teeth. They’re just little things, but they do help.

  249. I think that earth day is a great day to celebrate because people need to be reminded that our earth needs to be clean & have less pollution. I didn’t do do anything this earth day though. Im glad people participate in it.

  250. I think earth day should be celebrated. It is the one of 365 days in a year that we actually take the time to help the enviorment. We can take 24 hours and help out the earth. My family recycles cans and paper everyday to help out the earth. More and more people are helping out the earth and taking part in earth day. Even if it is just cleaning up trash outside, it can make a big difference.

  251. earth day is way more important to most other people but to me its just another day. some people are crazy full blown tree hugers that go all out on this day and tell us that we dont do enough to help the earth. the thing is i do some stuff but that’s not enough to some but i don’t care, but i do recycle cans and bottles

  252. Alright my blog just got deleted. So I’m not re-typing it. I said earth day was good, we recycle, and we changed all to energy saving bulbs.

  253. I believe Earth Day is an important day to celebrate because it shows people that our environment is important and we need to keep it clean. If our environment isn’t clean it just show the kind of people and it affects it in negative way, so we need to keep it clean by picking up after ourselves and recycle. At home I recycle and use florescent light bulbs to save energy.

  254. I do think earth day is important because it is our duty as humans to keeps this planet clean. Many people each year recycle but also many liter and do other things harming us and the environment. It is nice to have a day where everyone comes together and does very little but helps very much.

  255. I think it is an important day to celebrate because we only have one earth and it’s our job to take care of it. I don’t really do anything on a daily basis to help the environment.

  256. Yes i think earth day is an important day to celebrate. The reason why is if we don’t start thinking about the environment some day it will be to late to start

  257. I don’t feel it’s entirely necessary for people to dedicate a particular day to helping the earth, if you are concerned with it you should think about it every day, not just one a year. No one seems to do anything on earth day either. I try to respect the earth and avoid particularly damaging it, but I honestly don’t go out of my way aside from picking up any litter I see

  258. I believe that earth day in an important day to celebrate, because it helps with the pollution that is in the air that is caused by us, and the goal is to try to minimize that.

    And i do help by picking up scattered trash from my yard.

  259. Earth day is a important day to celebrate because this day is about making the earth a better place and clean. Also because no one wants to live in a place that’s not clean that’s why we have this day. what i do to help is my family recycles and we also reuse.

  260. yes because Earth day is were you can celebrate the day to clean the earth. some day i will clean up trash around my house.

  261. I don’t see why we celebrate it. It’s another pointless day to celebrate. I help the environment by using those reusable grocery bags and those energy efficient light bulbs.

  262. Yes, i believe in earth day! I think it is a great way to help the environment and and keep our earth safe and be able to save resources. I think it is a great way to save the environment.

  263. sure, i believe that earth day is an important day. That one day will help the earth just a little bit more than people already try to help it. Some things you can do, on a daily basis to help earth would be using energy saving light bolbs. also, taking quicker showers.

  264. Yes I believe Earth Day is an important day to celebrate. If you look at all the positive changes we have made in our country to try to save energy, save animals, and just be a clean country.. I’d say we’ve made much of an impact. My family recycles plastics, and paper. We use fluorescent light bulbs, and when we do stuff throughout the yard, we make sure we put nothing out there that could hurt animals.

  265. I think earth day is important because every person should react to it and do something good for the earth. A couple things I do is that i have energy efficient light bulbs in my house. We also recycle a lot of our trash.

  266. I think Earth Day is an important holiday to some people who really care about the environment and want to have a clean Earth. I usually don’t do anything because sometimes I forget about the holiday because my family doesn’t make a big deal about it, so my family thinks its not a super important holiday because we should be caring about the Earth more than just one day every year. So i think Earth Day is an important holiday for the people who really care about the environment being clean.

  267. i think that earth day is important to the people that really care about it. I think that in different countries might care about it more. In Canada if you litter its a big fine and you are looked down upon. not really i do yard work and that’s about it.

  268. I think that it is very important to celebrate earth day. The reason is that it is a day that you can help clean up the earth and make it a better place for people to live. I use energy saving light bulbs in my house. And we recycle and I do use energy saving light bulbs in my room and all over the house.

  269. I do believe it is important to celebrate Earth Day. This is because we need to always take time to make the earth a better place. On a regular bases i pick up trash on the streets to clean the environment.

  270. i do think that earth day is a day to be celebrated. I think that because the earth is definitely up in the top tens of most important things for humans, so the least we can do is take care of it.i recycle, unplug most of the stuff in my house before i leave and use energy efficient bulbs on a daily basis.

  271. Yes i do believe that earth day is an important day to celebrate.. This helps people see that the environment, which we live in, actually is important. If people are not wise in their choices that can effect the environment, We can produce a lot of pollution, and other stuff, which will not be a good thing.

  272. I think that Earth Day is kinda important but i don’t celebrate it. Ii say that because yeah it’s our Earth but it’s not a holiday in my book. I some times help out like pick up trash and throw it away but not all the time.

  273. Yes because we need to remember just how important our world is and that we need to take care of it so the next generation can enjoy a clean earth. With that said lets not go overboard and stop driving cars because algor said so

  274. The only thing my family does on a daily basis is recycling. We wouldn’t have started recycling if it wasn’t for the garbage people giving us a recycling bin. We never really have bottled water so i guess that helps too.

  275. I think that it should be celebrated, but not very much, I guess it is important to recognize how important the Earth is to us, so it should probably be celebrated. I sometimes try to do things to benefit the Earth. Some things like shutting off the water when I don’t need or recycling my empty bottles.

  276. I think that earth day is a good way to kind of say that you are giving back and making the earth look better.Our family recycles and my mom is kind of a big one on what you throw away and what is being recycled. I think that it is good that we do all of this so that we don’t look like a bad earth and all trashy

  277. Yes I do belive you shoud celabraite earthday.Because you need to help the enviermente evrey once and a while.No i do not do anything to help the envierment.

  278. Yes I do think it is important to celebrate Earth day because this is our home and we should be helping so that we can stay on Earth. Helping in my family is recycling every Friday and using the light bulbs that are more efficient.

  279. No i do not i think it not very important why do they make a big deal about it. I recycle to help the environment and that’s what i do. why do people get so mad when you say you don’t need earth day.

  280. I do think that Earth Day is important because even though we should be doing this everyday of the year to help out our Earth, if there is a specific day that is made to help make our Earth cleaner and recycle more. People may start to just do it more often once they realize how beneficial it is. Usually I do something to help out on Earth Day but this year, I kinda forgot about it. But on a regular basis, I do recycle pop cans and bottles.

  281. i believe that, while important, earth day is relativity useless. the vast majority of the population that cares about the environment who shall do something is already informed about it. i could use less water

  282. I think earth day is important to celebrate because we live on this earth and if we keep destroying it we would have no place to go, so we really do need to help make it better. I don’t really do anything to help the earth everyday but my family recycles plastic bags at walmart.

  283. I think Earth Day is an important holiday for people who care about the Earth. I think this because they like to see people cleaning up the Earth and want people to do it everyday. My family uses energy-efficient fluorescent bulbs.

  284. I do think that earth day is an important day to celebrate because we can do things to help the earth. well we can do that any day but on this one day everyone should get up and do something for are one planet. I don’t usually do anything to help benefit the environment.

  285. I think earth day is a very important day to have because it cleans up our earth and helps save energy. It can help make our water clean.

  286. Earth day is important because its a day where everyone should take time out of their day and go outside and save energy. Also to walk instead of drive somewhere. I do most sometimes when i recycle things also when i turn off things that have been left on at my house like a light or TV.

  287. I think Earth day is important because it sheds light on what we need to do to keep our planet clean. More people should really be more cautious of where they put their trash and how they dispose of it. In my family we have two recycling bins, one is for paper and the other is for bottles and cans.

  288. I think that it helps the environment very much and more people should participate on this day. It should be celebrated, it would help very very much. My mom recycles and that is about it.

  289. I don’t really care for earth day, I didn’t even know their was such thing.
    I don’t like do anything special for the environment but i just don’t liter and throw stuff on the ground.

  290. Well I think Earth Day is a important day but I don’t do much to support it. I don’t think there should be an Earth Day but I do think that people should just help clean up the Earth. No i don’t do anything for Earth Day or any day.

  291. i think earth day is not really important because its not like ever person in the world participates in it. not everyday but when i see litter ill pick it up and put it in the trash.

  293. I think earth day as a hole is not a big deal i think everyday should be earth day it shouldn’t just be set to one day that humans should take care of the earth at the end of the day the more harm we do to earth the worse it goes for us. Yes i do recycle to help out the earth.

  294. Yes I do think its a day to celebrate but i’m not one of the people to participate in it. It shows that people don’t just think of themselves and they can help many things by doing it. No I didn’t do anything to help out.

  295. I think Earth Day is a good day to celebrate because everybody can help clean up the Earth a little. More people should be aware of what they’re doing to the Earth and try to fix it and that’s why they established Earth Day. My family helps out every day by recycling.

  296. yes because we can give back to the place we all live and the best part we can get ride of most of the trash that is on are planet. yes i clean up the yard and i cut other peoples bushes and grass so they can keep working to pay for their homes

  297. I think it’s pretty important due to it being a day to clean. If i’m correct, Earth day is a day of cleaning and respect twords our very earth. In that case, it’s pretty good.

  298. Yes because it a day of reusing things we recycled. Were not just throwing things away when they could be made for other things in life.Yes i recycle newspaper.
