Today marks the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day. Why not celebrate by making these small changes every day for the month of May:

  • Watch less TV
  • Buy fewer things
  • Eat more vegetables, grains, and fruits while eating less meat
  • Take the stairs instead of the elevator
  • Ride the bus or your bike to work or school
  • Use less water in and around your home

Tells us about your act of green in the comments – and ask your friends and family what they’re doing!

Earth Day is also the first day of advanced voting for the federal election. As you go to the polls, choose the party that will protect and conserve nature on behalf of all Canadians. Not sure who to vote for?

Advanced voting takes place on Friday, April 22, Saturday, April 23 and Monday, April 25. Find your local advance polling stations here.

Tell Canada’s leaders where you stand – vote for nature in 2011!
