Earth Day 2008This week I thought it would be nice to focus the resource roundup on the environment in honor of Earth Day (which was Monday) and Arbor Day which is today. Some of these are news items, others are resources and there’s a couple of actual enviro-friendly fundraising ideas. Enjoy!

The Earth Day 2008 Action Center is the first stop for Earth Day information, ideas and events. Founded by the organizers of the first Earth Day in 1970, Earth Day Network (EDN) promotes environmental citizenship and year round progressive action worldwide.

Tracie shares the history of Earth Day and what her family did to celebrate on her blog Turn it Green Today.

At Make Earth Day Every Day Sweepstakes pledge to reduce your environmental impact and enter to win great prizes like a 5-day spa & golf trip for two, a new bike or a collection of Burt’s Bees products. (last day to enter is May 30, 2008)

The Official Blog explored green jobs this week. Along these lines, also check out the Green For All website, which I discovered after Van Jones was on the Colbert Report earlier this month.

Interest is growing in dropping the plastic bag from stores. Your group could even provide reusable bags as a fundraiser.

This recycling fundraiser success story features a group that uses a printer cartridge and cell phone program to raise funds.

Save-R-Planet Kids is helping children in central Florida learn about recycling. Here are a few things that other young people around the country did for Earth Day as reported by the Christian Science Monitor.

And if you still need more green news, opinion and ideas check out the Carnival of the Green Earth Day Edition.
