Earth Day
is an annual event, celebrated on April 22, on which events are held worldwide to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network, and celebrated in more than 192 countries each year.

Cities and citizens alike all find ways to participate and celebrate Earth Day, every day… by being more aware overall of the everyday decisions you and your family make towards the environment including conserving water, saving energy and incorporating the reducing, reusing and recycling. More specifically, you could try what the Earth Day Network’s recent blog suggests: Participate in Earth Day with an Earth Dinner! This blog explains how you can have fun with your family and educate yourselves on your dinner food’s origins:

If you’re looking for an easy, fun way to show your support for the environment and eat healthy on Earth Day, we’ve got just the thing—an Earth Dinner! After all, every holiday has its own food tradition except Earth Day, until now. Start by planning a dinner with as many local, seasonal, and organic ingredients as possible – supporting local and organic farmers is a great way to celebrate Earth Day.

Then, get to know the story behind your food. Where did it come from? Who were the farmers? What is the history of each dish’s recipe, or the food itself? Finally, have some meaningful conversation about food, sustainable farming, and your own connection to the food, the earth, and each other.

Celebrate Earth Day right this year by hosting your friends and family for a very special Earth Dinner!
AmeriGas suggests that you take this idea of the Earth Day dinner a step further and grill you meal with the help of our propane exchange tanks. Help the Earth when you choose propane for your energy needs. Propane is an approved, clean fuel listed in the 1990 Clean Air Act as well as the National Energy Policy Act of 1992. Propane has always been a “green” fuel: far ahead of today’s trends.

Because propane is one of the lightest, simplest hydrocarbons in existence, it is also one of the cleanest burning of all fossil fuels. It does not harm soil, water, or contribute contaminants to acid rain. According to the EPA, much of the sulfur dioxide in the atmosphere, which produces acid rain, is attributable to coal-fired, electricity-generating facilities.

Happy Earth Day 2014, and enjoy your dinner!
