Earth Day

Today is Earth Day! A day designed to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth's environment. Did you know that the first Earth Day was celebrated on April 22, 1970? Earth Day was started by Senator Gaylord Nelson, a Democratic politician from Wisconsin, to encourage Americans to start taking care of the environment.

Take a look here on Kaboose.com to learn more about the history of Earth Day and to find many ideas that you can share with your children to get them involved in saving our planet.

At CWDkids, we are doing our part by carrying 100% Organic cotton t-shirts from Mulberribush. Also, we mail our clothing in recyclable plastic envelopes and recycle all paper materials at our office.
