5 Ways to Make This Earth Day Really Count

You can't clean up the entire planet, but you can beautify a pocket of your neighborhood.

(Bonus points for offering sustainable prizes to the winners.) The cleanup will be a good chance to give something back to your community and an opportunity to show younger participants the importance of reducing waste.
