Ten Things to Do in Honor of Earth Day

Despite the fact that she sustains our lives, literally, Mother Nature doesn't get a whole lot of kudos. Most of the time, we're abusing her via gas-guzzling vehicles, carbon-spouting factory farms, and plastic trash by the ton.

Since she only gets one day of recognition out of 365, the least we can do is show her some serious love. Luckily, there are lots of ways to make with the earth-affection this week, from volunteering, to ethical eating, to adopting a homeless pup. Check out our list and hop to it.

10. Do some downward facing dogs in Peacock Park.
Nothing says "I love the earth" like you in a pair of lululemon pants doing your best tree pose under the setting Miami sun. Seriously, can't you picture it? Practice some yoga in Peacock Park, and be one with the green grass beneath your feet.
The event starts at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, April 22 at 2820 McFarlane Rd. It's free.

9. Kill two birds with one stone and plant a tree for Arbor Day and Earth Day.
Trees are good. Our survival kinda depends on 'em, actually, so we really need to stop cutting them down to make Ultra flyers and toilet paper. Give some time and help put some in the ground, instead of helping to take 'em out.
The event starts at 8 a.m. on Friday, April 25 at 890 NE 69th St. It's free.
