World FM wants to give you 5 ideas on how you can celebrate Earth Day while continuing to social distance!

 

Go for a bike ride

The weather is beautiful, the bike paths are dry. Going for a bike ride is a great way to exercise, keep a safe distance from others, and most importantly connect with the earth.

Start/tend a garden

What better way to thank the earth than to utilize one of its key properties: the ability to grow food! It’s a win-win. The earth gets to do what it does best and you get fresh vegetables for a salad.

Go for a walk, jog or a hike

It’s important to remember that you don’t need to be alone. If you keep a suggested distance of 6 feet from someone you can still enjoy their company. Go enjoy the earth on your own or with friends or family today!

Enjoy some earth-focused online entertainment

The earth has many natural beauties and complex wonders that are only available for us to view through video. I would recommend watching Our Planet, MeatEater, or Night on Earth. All very good earth documentaries. If your love for earth expands to space, check out Cosmos.
