Thinking Green - An Earth Day Giveaway!

Earth Day is just 2 weeks away! You've probably gathered through the years that I'm a big fan of this holiday. First celebrated on April 22, 1970, the idea for this (now) international day of environmental awareness came from Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin, who is considered the founder of Earth Day. Last year, Gwen and I planted some trees to celebrate. This year there is a great Earth Day festival downtown that I hope to check out! I also donated to the Earth Day Network's Trees for the Earth campaign, which has a goal to plant 7.8 billion trees worldwide by 2020!! (Make a quick donation if you can, or if you planted your own trees, let them know so they can count them!) We'll probably also take a few trips out onto our local trails with a garbage bag and some gloves, to pick up any trash we see.

In the meantime, I decided to join this great Earth Day Giveaway blog hop! A chance to win some fun green prizes (be sure to check out everyone's blogs to see all of the prizes). There is sure to be something for everyone, and you can enter one or enter all.

Since I have been trying to move away from giving people more things that they may or may not need, my giveaway is a $20 E-Gift Card to Amazon, to use for whatever your heart desires!



Welcome to the Earth Day Giveaway Hop, hosted by The Pistachio Project and Green Moms Network! Each of the participating blogs will be giving away a prize to help you go green and celebrate Earth Day! Earth Day is just one day out of the year but we want to give you ways to go eco-friendly all year long. After entering my giveaway, be sure to hop around and enter all of the other giveaways listed on the link at the bottom of this post!
