Happy 46 years, Earth Day!

It's that time of year when our lovely blue planet gets a day, week or even a whole month in the spotlight. We at Blue Practice are in the Every Day is Earth Day! camp and believe that the Earth needs a good communicator to share the stories focused on making the world a better place. Every April we welcome the boost of media attention that draws public awareness to critical environmental topics of our day, and we look forward to sharing some of our favorites below.

If you don't have plans to celebrate Earth Day yet, check out this great Google map of registered events around the world.
Earth Day 2016: #Trees4Earth
The Earth Day Network will be celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2020, and until then, they have a hefty goal of planting 7.8 billion trees. Appropriately, this year's theme for Earth Day is Trees for the Earth.You can help by spreading the word, donating or getting your hands dirty and planting some trees! Don't forget to join the #Trees4Earth conversation on social media.

The Blue Practice team recently got down into the dirt with Friends of the Urban Forest, a Bay Area non-profit dedicated to nurturing urban landscapes through street tree plantings and sidewalk gardens.
