Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22 and reminds many to cherish natural resources by taking part in activities that can protect the environment.

According to Earth Day Network, “The first Earth Day on April 22, 1970, activated 20 million Americans from all walks of life and is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement.”

At Carlmont, 2017 Earth Day was celebrated on April 21 by the do something commission of ASB.

The commission decided to hang up short, informative phrases, such as “Remember to Recycle,” in order to keep students focused on how they could preserve the Earth.

They also wrapped paper butterflies around some of the trees in the upper quad. The butterflies had text on them because the commission used recycled paper instead of a new, blank paper to create the symbols of nature.

“By giving out the temporary tattoos and keychains and decorating, the commission is bringing awareness, which is encouraging people to take care of the Earth,” said Shelby Young, a junior and a member of the do something commission.

Many students participated in Earth Day festivities and plan to continue many of the activities in order to protect the Earth every day. 

“I like to walk places whenever I can. Taking the bus is also good and it helps the planet because cars have a higher amount of pollution,”  said Isabella Romero, a sophomore.
