5 ways to celebrate Earth Day (April 22) in greater Phoenix

Recycle, Earth day

Monday, April 22, marks the 49th anniversary of Earth Day — a day to honor the environment that was first organized in response to a massive oil spill near Santa Barbara, California. It’s a great opportunity to teach kids about recycling, new energy-saving technology and more. There’s no shortage of ways to celebrate, with fun and educational events across the Valley.

1. Earth Day Phoenix (April 22). Light Rail/biking/walking are encouraged to attend this free annual zero-waste event, with exhibitors, mini eco-classes, food trucks and more at Cesar Chavez Plaza in Phoenix.

2. Kids Go Free at Sea Life Arizona Aquarium (April 22-May 24). Sea Life and Coca-Cola are asking the community to help reduce plastic waste one bottle at a time. Anyone who brings an empty plastic Coca-Cola bottle to Sea Life Arizona Aquarium for recycling will receive a free kids admission (for ages 3-12) with the purchase of a full-price adult admission through May 24. Also, this week (April 22-28), Sea Life is showing kids creative ways to reuse plastic bottles with crafting classes.

3. Earth Day deals. Grimaldi’s Pizzeria locations are celebrating Earth Day by offering 16-inch cheese pizzas for the “round” price of $10 — only on Monday, April 22.

4. Read “The Lorax” with your kids. This Dr. Seuss classic is a cautionary tale with a strong environmental message that remains timely. Follow it up with the 2012 Universal Pictures animated movie — one that embraces but embellishes Seuss’s story and explores why greed continues to trump conscience.

5. Plant something. Sign up for a gardening class at the Desert Botanical Garden or through Maricopa County’s Master Gardener program.
