Tomorrow is April 22—and millions of people worldwide will come together to celebrate Earth Day, the annual event born in 1970 to highlight support for important environmental causes. Will you be celebrating? You can do a Google search to find local Earth Day events near you, or even search this map on the official Earth Day website for ideas.
Since we share our planet with animals, I’m going to celebrate Earth Day tomorrow by spreading happiness to animals. How am I going to accomplish that, you may ask? Here are 10 fun ways:
This Friday marks the 46th annual Earth Day—but as lovers of animals and the environment know, every day can (and should) be Earth Day. That’s because every single day we make small decisions about which products to use, whether or not to recycle something, whether we should buy local or not, and so on. And day after day, these seemingly small decisions add up—big time. Sure, living green is a conscious effort, but as you’ll see below, it doesn’t have to be a difficult one.
If you share your life with dogs, check out the following 14 easy and inspiring ways both you and your pooch can go green, every single day. (If you’re more of a cat person, keep in mind that a lot of these tips will work for you, too!) From donating unused products to shelters and buying in bulk to choosing organic food for your favorite furry friend, we’ve got you covered with easy tips and tricks for living greener and smarter.

Happy Earth Day! What are your plans for tomorrow? I would like to remember the animals this Earth Day, so that inspired me to put together this list of 10 simple things we can do tomorrow (and year-round!) to help our planet’s animals. Read on for my ideas, in addition to a special Earth Day Meditation:
1. Volunteer at your favorite animal shelter. Spending an afternoon with animals in need is a wonderful way to give back and boost your spirits at the same time.
2. Take your horse on a trail ride through the forest. Your horse will love the extra attention, and meanwhile you can take this quiet time to enjoy the beauty of the trees and nature around you.
