Act for the Planet – Act with Earth Day Canada

Act for the Planet – Recycle Your Batteries and Meet the Challenge of the Day

Are you ready to take a big step towards helping green the planet? How about 30 small-ish steps? This April, Earth Day Canada issued an action-based challenge to Canadians of all ages to change the way they live, work and play in the hopes that easy green actions will become lifelong green habits. Act for the Planet is all about small changes making a big impact.

There are just so many things we can do to improve the state of our environment—as individuals, as families and as entire communities. In improving the state of the environment, we are ultimately improving our own health and the health of our children.

Each week throughout the month of April is themed and supported by a Challenge of the Day on the Earth Day Canada Facebook page. From recycling batteries to purging cleaning products with harmful toxins from your home, our challenges are simple, effective and educational. Challenge yourself. Challenge a friend. Challenge your entire office. And keep us updated on your progress.

Visit and download the entire 30-day challenge list. Follow Earth Day Canada on Facebook ( and Twitter (@EarthDayCanada) to learn about the simple things you can do to take action—today and every day because Earth Day shouldn’t be just one day a year.

Act for the Planet – for Kids!

We want our kids to inherit the best planet possible. That’s why Earth Day Canada’s EcoKids program wants kids to Act for the Planet and learn something new about the environment and themselves this Earth Month!

We’re encouraging kids of all ages (with a little bit of help from a grown-up) to take up one or more actions that they can do at home, in their classroom or with their entire school.

The Act for the Planet actions are:

  • Build a bug house
  • Grow and eat sprouts
  • Reconnect with nature
  • Swap stuff
  • Start an anti-idling campaign

Kids love learning, exploring and growing—these activities will help connect them to the environment and teach them fun, new ways to help care for our planet.

As if that weren’t cool enough, Sony Canada will be offering prizes for the kids’ challenge! Visit for more information on Act for the Planet and how you and your kids can get involved.

This April, do something amazing for the planet that we share—one small, green step at a time.
