Only one Earth , we should cherish their homes !

Also thanks to those volunteers !



I love reading about community events like this. Earth Day efforts would be a great topic to cover in an article. At my holistic health website I have a section for environment but also social / global health. These events are not only important for our home here on earth but also for our holistic health and well-being.


This earth day thing is great, I hope my country would seriously consider to make such a big event for mother earth!
