Celebrate Earth Day's 40th Birthday

Hey GirlMoguls – it’s me Poppy here to tell you about my favorite holiday – no, it’s not Christmas or my birthday – it’s Earth Day – Mother Earth’s very own birthday.  As a total go green girl, I’m really excited because this year, on April 22nd, 2010, Earth Day is having its 40th birthday – that’s right – Earth Day has been around for FORTY YEARS – wow – that’s older than my Mom!  The first Earth Day saw 20 million people take part in festivities that included parades, events to raise environmental awareness and concerts.

Now more than 100 million people all over the world take part in Earth Day – a celebration to get the world thinking about our environmental, our effect on it and what we can do to keep it green and healthy for a long time to come.   So get ready, this month at www.girlmogul.com we’re going to be celebrating our earth – we’ll go over ways you can make your family and community greener and how you can throw an Earth Day party!

So party on – just make sure you recycle your paper plates!
