What did you do on Earth Day and why do you feel it’s necessary to get involved on this day?
Earth Day, celebrated April 22, a day where everyone comes together to do their small part and make a big difference on the planet we call home.
Four CSUSB students shared their stance on Earth Day and showed there’s many ways to do your part, reminding us that we should remember to take care of the Earth not just on this one day but every day.

“This Earth Day, I attempted to decrease the amount of energy I used. I turned my television off, and other electrical appliances. I also used the stairs instead of taking the elevator.”
(Jesse Baeza, Junior)
“On Earth Day I watched a few programs on the Discovery channel about the changes we’ve made on our planet and realized the more we pollute and damage it, the more danger we put ourselves in. We need to think about being more energy efficient and work to protect our wildlife that we so easily forget is also affected.”
(Charles Burgess, Senior)
“We shouldn’t just clean-up and care about the Earth on this holiday but it should be an everyday routine. I believe it’s important to take care of this planet now because if we don’t we’re going to regret it in the future when we’ve destroyed its beauty.”
(Marie Kirsch, Senior)
“I spent this Earth Day at home with my family. It’s important to take care of this Earth like it takes care of us. It’s a beautiful place with beautiful life and it’s important for all of us to be conscious of what we do to it. I’d definitely like to plant some trees next Earth Day- it’s one of my favorite activities.”
