The first Earth Day occurred in the spring of 1970. Senator Gaylord Nelson spearheaded the event to bring awareness to conservation efforts. Now a nationally recognised holiday, Earth day takes place on Aprill 22. While thinking about the Earth should be an everyday occurrence, you can use Earth Day and simple posters to help your coworkers, fellow students and family to become aware of their impact on the earth
Facts About the Earth
Make a poster with simple earth facts. This is a poster, not a report, so include the most important facts you'd like to convey. Write clearly and legibly. Depending on the size of your poster, select four to five facts to highlight. For example, the earth travels 1.6 million miles each year as it makes its way around the sun, according to the University of North Dakota's symposium on sustainability.
Create an eye-catching poster with a picture of water or what people can do to conserve water. Dot the poster with tips; for example, Sunnyslope County Water District's estimates a leaky faucet can waste more than 100 gallons of water every day.
Make a poster of energy saving tips and hang the poster next to lights, computers or other machines that people use daily. The Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) states that saving energy can save money; highlight switching to compact fluorescent lamps, which can save both energy and money. Turning off central heating while using the fireplace can save on both money and energy.
Empower friends and family to help endangered animals. Create a poster outlining a few simple steps and include photos of endangered animals. For example, people can help by leaving animals' habitats alone and by using animal safe chemicals in the garden. The Endangered Specie website also suggests planting trees so birds have a place to nest.
