Get Out There on Earth Day!

Earth Day is April 22nd. Here at the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) we’d like to invite you to participate in a variety of fun projects.

Help us capture the moment of Earth Day 2012. As part of our ongoing photo project, State of the Environment, we’re launching Environment in a Day to collect photos around the world, taken within the twenty four hour period of Earth Day. To participate, take a photograph where you are on April 22nd, upload it to Flickr, and share it with our State of the Environment group. One photo from each state and U.S. territory will be featured on an interactive map of the moment.

Our Planet. Six words. Ready go! We’re working with SMITH Magazine and asking you to write a six- word essay on the environment. Learn more about this project and read some of our six-word essays at our blog and share your Six Words for the Planet at SMITH Magazine.

Like to explore? Then Greenquest is for you! Test your knowledge about the environment, solve a puzzle, learn about things you can do, list your name on the wall, and enter the prize drawing to be a guest blogger on EPA’s It’s Our Environment blog.

Look beneath the surface and join the conversation! We’ve created a place for you to talk about environmental issues and share environmental tips you use every day. Watch the video, then start a discussion or join an existing one.
