Today is April 22, Earth Day, and also the March for Science. This is a very brief post since the best way to honor this day is to be active. So consider one of the following:
• Make Environmentally Safer Choice-The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has set up the Safer Choice website to help you pick products that are better for your health and the environment.
• Check out local activities pertaining to the March for Science in your community.
• Become a Citizen Scientist: There are many projects that could use your help, whether it’s photographing plants in your backyard, keeping a diary of a medical condition, or even collecting dirt to help with the discovery of new lifesaving antibiotics. No matter your age or ability, there is something you can do. Check out the website The Crowd & The Cloud to not only see how Citizen Science is answering a lot of questions, but also find a project that you and or your family might be interested in doing.
