Earth day is this Friday so for anyone out there who doesn’t already honor our beautiful earth, this is the week to do so! I’ve just stumbled across the Nature Conservatory’s Picnic for the Planet campaign and I love it. The concept is pretty simple – let’s celebrate the planet we live on, the food it provides and the people we share it with. Every day the planet does a lot for us so the least we can do is take our planet out to lunch!
So on and around Earth Day 2011 (April 22), people all around the world are encouraged to step outside and congregate at their favorite outdoor spot to enjoy good food and good people. You can join a picnic that has already been planned or you can grab some friends and plan your own. It’s easy to do using the campaign website. There’s even recipes from chefs from around the world who want to help make your picnic more memorable. I hope you’ll consider joining in on the fun!
