5 Ways To Celebrate Going Green For Earth Day

If the March for Science isn't your thing, here are some other options to celebrate the day.

Since the first Earth Day in 1970, the environmental movement continues to build. This year there’s a big focus on the March for Science, but whether you decide to participate or not, there are many other ways to go green. Making decisions with your wallet is one. Here are some products that have caught our hazel eyes, and if you buy them, we think they are all worthy of social media—another way to spread some global love.
