With Earth Day only three days away my inbox is flooded with specials, sales, and events going on to celebrate the Earth. Today I will share just a few of my favorites.
If you live in the Tampa Bay area and don’t have plans for the day make your out to Honeymoon Island State Park for Island Earth Days. We went yesterday and had a blast. There were fun activities for the kids (all free) including face painting, paint a seashell, make a fossil, make a sock puppet, and more. There were also great festival food, good music, and eco-vendors. Some local agencies and environmental groups set up exhibits to help educate both the young and old on how to be a responsible citizen. I was a proud mamma when Big B asked a million questions about sea urchins to one of the Department of Environmental Protection employees. We are all looking forward to reading (and reviewing) our new books by Michael Sterns, Kokopelli & the Butterfly and Kokopelli & the Island of Change. What we expected to be an hour of our day turned into a 4 hour visit to the park and beach. I love Florida!
Ecostore USA has a FREE SHIPPING offer for all orders $25 and more. I need to order some more Baby Nappy Balmfor Little B. If you happen to be in the Cincinnati area on Earth Day join Disney as they promote Ecostore USA with Ecoman (Malcolm Rands) at his Meijer store tour. Listen to the Cincinnati Meijer Radio Disney to hear more. This promotion will coincide with the premier of the new Disney movie Earth. The first 25 moms or dads that ask Malcolm the Ecoman A question will receive an organic Ecostore T-Shirt. There will be entertainment for the kids while mom and dad ask Malcolm ( Ecoman) questions. (4/22 Cincinnati – Harrison Road from 4-6 PM)
Like I said, I have many more emails and specials I could share with you all but I’m going to go spend the rest of my day enjoying my family. Enjoy your weekend and enjoy your Earth Day 2009! I’d love to hear what you are doing to celebrate Earth Day. Just leave me a comment below!
Sounds like you had a blast at Honeymoon Island! Did it give you any ideas for your Earth Day planning for next year?
