The curret national holiday for Arbor Day is celebrated every year on the last Friday in April. Arbor Day is also celebrated throughout the world on different dates.
If you don't have a front/backyard where to plant trees (or yours is already at capacity) but would like to get involved in tree planting & cleaning activities, and you live in the Los Angeles area, check out Guidance Green eco-partner Tree Musketeers, the nation’s first youth environmental organization dedicated, at http://www.treemusketeers.org.

The festivities were organized by members of the Guidance Green committee, who took the opportunity to announce the company’s new Coffee Grounds Recycling Program. Guidance will be saving all used consumption coffee grounds to reuse in the garden and as deodorizer. Check out our blog soon for more tips on how to reuse coffee grounds.
In addition, Guidance Green members Catherine and Debbie created a number of handmade crafts using recycled materials that they displayed during the festivities.
We had a blast on Earth Day. Can we top it next year? We'll sure try!

I was also glad to talk to a couple of people who remembered last year's Guidance Green booth at this event -- they even recalled the booth's exact location (WOW!). It's good to know we had a lasting effect!
Some familiar faces were at the event this year, including the Go Earth team, the folks from Tree Musketeers and reps from Heal The Bay, among others.
The entertainment? A Morrissey/The Smiths tribute band -- and they were phenomenal! Couldn't tell the difference.
It's great to see our community being so active about such an important message. Now's your turn -- what are you doing to celebrate Earth Day this year? Whatever you do, make it a great Earth Day!
