Earth Day Heard Round the Web
Posted By Jessica Mischner On April 22, 2009 @ 4:45 pm In Uncategorized | No Comments
You only have to look as far as our editors’ own musings  to know that Earth Day  is a polarizing concept. But whether you think it’s a celebration-worthy environmental milestone or a trumped up holiday devoid of value, the fact is, Earth Day gets people talking about sustainability and we’re all for that. Here are some of the best stories we’ve seen on the subject, from Obama-invoking hope cries to sod-it-all tirades to feel-good guides to activism—and everything in between. Regardless of which approach you take, we’re pretty sure that keeping the debate alive is one (and maybe the only) virtue of Earth Day we can all agree on.
While Grist’s Rick Bass  argues for coming together a la Election Day to make Earth Day a similar kind of cultural tradition we can all embrace . . . his colleague Daniel Kast  remains skeptical.
Ecofabulous  rounds up events and resources for planning the ultimate Earth Day celebration.
Inhabitots  has a list of 10 fun Earth Day activities for kids.
The Mother Nature Network  offers ideas for small changes and suggests ways to mark the occasion (to the tunes in MNN founder and former Rolling Stones keyboardist Chuck Leavell’s eco playlist, of course).
