What American University students can do to celebrate Earth Month

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at American chapter.

April is Earth month. There are plenty of fun and accessible activities to attend in Washington, D.C. to celebrate the earth. Here are three events students American University can attend to celebrate: 

Earth Day Artisan Market:  

What better way to celebrate the earth than cider and upcycled art. The Earth Day Artisan Market can be found at Capitol Cider House on April 23 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Admission is free; vendors will sell upcycled apparel, vegan soaps, handmade gemstones and much more! 

Anacostia Community Museum’s Earth Day Celebration: 

On April 22, the Anacostia Community Museum will be holding an Earth Day celebration. The museum will provide lessons on how to start a garden and educational panels. 

Earth Day Shoreline Cleanup at Oxon Cove Park:

Put on clothes you don’t mind getting muddy, grab a friend and take action at the Earth Day shoreline cleanup at Oxon Cove Park. Clean up the shoreline at Oxon Cove Park by removing plastics and trash from the shoreline. There is no better way to celebrate the earth than giving back. 

Live Sustainability:

Living sustainably can look different for everyone! Although sustainability can be tricky as a college student, but simple changes like buying second-hand instead of fast fashion can be made. Use reusable utensils, be water wise and of course recycle! 

Hopefully you can attend one of these events in order to celebrate mother Earth!
