SOME FACTS AND HISTORY ABOUT EARTH DAY

The first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970 to provide a day that took homage to the Earth and all of the environmental challenges it faces. This was a one-time event and was celebrated by millions around the country.  The second Earth day was not celebrated until twenty years later, in 1990.  The day is not an official federal holiday, but is still celebrated each year on that date.  There is also an International Earth Day that is celebrated on March 20th of each year.

Earth Day is traditionally not a gift giving holiday.  However, if gifts are provided around this holiday, the theme of trees and plants should be considered.

Gardener: If the gift recipient is a gardener, what would be more appropriate than purchasing something with a flower or plant motif.  It could be a vase, bowl or even a picture frame - there is a great amount of items to choose from.  Gardening supplies would also be a nice gift, but some people are particular as to the tools they use, so you may want to ask them or someone who know them well before purchasing.

Conversationalist: For the conversationalist we would recommend making a donation in the name of the recipient.  You can either donate directly to a conservation cause/organization, or put the money towards growing a tree in the U.S. or abroad.

Travel: The travel destination for this holiday is anywhere there is a lot of trees or if you cannot go that far, go to a local garden (or Botanical Garden if possible).  Depending on where you go in the U.S., many trees are beginning to grow their new leaves back after their long winter slumber.  For far away places, how about going somewhere there are rain forests like South America or Puerto Rico.
