National Earth Day

Started in 1969, Earth Day celebrates it's 50th anniversary today. Regardless of one's stance on climate change/global warming, it's a day one can do something, however small, to help our planet. Toss something into a recycling bin or turn off a light at home if it's not in use. Are there any on this forum that actively do things to aid the planet?

It's also National Jelly Bean Day.

National Jelly Bean Day is observed each year on April 22. 

While candies made in a similar manner existed before the jelly bean, Boston confectioner William Schrafft made them popular during the Civil War. With their firm exterior, jelly beans were the first candies to be sold by the pound. Schrafft encouraged his customers to send them to Union soldiers.

During the 1930s, jelly beans became closely associated with the Easter holiday but are now enjoyed year round. Jelly Beans were Ronald Reagan’s favorite treat.  

What's your favorite color? I love the green ones and the black ones.

    Gravity is a myth, The Earth just sucs. Seriously though, happy 4.5 billionth and change birthday 3rd rock, and may you have many more. You started with a big bang and just kept getting better from there.

    TNDawg, Earth is pretty cool, but Pluto being a dwarf makes it interesting, like that little guy on Game Of Thrones.

    Pluto is a full blown planet and I refuse to recognize otherwise.
