5 Ways to Celebrate Earth Day with Your Baby in Tow

We all strive for a positive impact on the world, and Earth Day presents the perfect opportunity to teach our children the importance of respecting the environment. Participating in activities together as a family creates wonderful memories and allows you to teach your children by example. Helpful hint: wearing a MOBY baby carrier  can be wildly helpful. It enables you to stay hands-on with your older children while keeping your baby close, giving you the freedom to tackle any messy task that comes your way.

Below are our Top Five Picks for Family Activities for Earth Day: 

  1. Planting Trees: Pick up a shovel and attend a local tree planting event with other volunteers from your community. Planting trees reduces climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the air, storing carbon in the trees and soil, and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere. Not to mention -  providing food and shelter for animals, it’s a win-win!
  1. Beach Clean-up: Head to the beach with your family and combine a day of fun in the sun with some cleaning for your community. Unclean beaches present serious health risks to humans, marine life, and other animals.  Pollution and contaminated water are toxic to all and a clean-up day prevents harmful substances from entering the marine environment. So roll up your sleeves, put on your Easy-Wrap and get going!
  1. Local Park Clean-up:  A no-brainer! Your children play at parks, you exercise at parks, and your dogs run freely at parks, let's keep the clean! Litter is not only an eyesore, but it can also be dangerous. Kids playing around with metals and glass can cause serious injury. Parks are pivotal in preserving a habitat for wildlife, clean water, and air, and providing open space for kids to play. 
  1. Decorate Recycling Bins: Paint, Glitter, Stickers…and we have your little one’s attention! If you don’t already have a recycling bin, find an old trash bin and get to work. While your kids craft, you can educate them on the dangers of trash that fills the earth and the ocean - and what they can do to recycle more. Fun fact: If every American recycles 10% of their newspapers, we can save 25 million trees every year.
  1. Plant a Garden: What could be a better activity for kids than playing in the dirt? Your garden will encourage pollination and produce plants, herbs, or even fruits and vegetables! The list goes on and on. 

Earth Day is a day to celebrate our planet and create a better future for our children. Participating in one of these activities will create a better world for all.
