Earth Day 2012

Earth Day 2012 is on April 22, 2012.  There’s lots of ways that we can bring awareness to Earth Day and EarthDay.org provides a list of what we can do or events we can join to show our appreciation of the planet and demand its protection.

At the very least, we can all shift local.  Studies show that supporting local businesses benefits the environment.  For example, local businesses use less fossil fuels from the long transportation routes.  We really like how this infograph from elocal.com shows how much a shift from chains can make a positive impact in our environment.

What do you think about the infograph?  What are you doing for Earth Day?
