Happy Earth Day Niagara Falls! Every year on April 22nd, over 170 countries celebrate Earth Day with various activities to promote greener living and help educate on proper environmental safety practices. Starting in 1970, Earth Day began as an environmental awareness event lead by Wisconsin Governor Gaylord Nelson and a Harvard University student, Denis Hayes. Since then, this event has grown into a whole day and even a whole week worth of events to better the environment we live in.
Events take place in almost every community across Canada: rain barrel sales, tree planting, clean-ups, corporate information sessions and school activities for every child in Canada, just to name a few. If you want to be a part of an Earth Day activity in your community, check out the events listings and for the Niagara Region, Earth Day events are happening all week. On top of the designated Earth Day events, this is a great time to get out and enjoy the outdoors… to truly appreciate the beauty of our Earth. Perhaps a hike along the Niagara Gorge is in order?
Here at Best Western Plus Cairn Croft, we do our best to make sure that we are leaving a smaller carbon footprint on the Earth than we have in the past. We have recently introduced Green Energy to our hotel and encourage all guests to be green during their stay!
