Each year on April 22, the world comes together to raise awareness about environmental protection. This global event is known as World Earth Day. As we are a few days away from this special event, we thought it’s best to give you five ways to celebrate Earth Day as a virtual assistant:
One Dollar. One Tree
Have you ever wanted to plant a tree, but you don’t have the time to do it? Well, with One Tree Planted, it’s possible! One Tree Planted is a non-profit organization that focuses on global reforestation. They make it simple for anyone to help the environment by donating a dollar to plant a tree.
“One Tree Planted has planted more than 40 million trees across 43+ countries in North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Pacific.”
Planting a tree has never been easier. What’s more, you’ll receive feedback on the progress and growth of your very own tree! Think about it, what is one dollar for such a great cause? They walk the extra mile (literally) by planting trees in all seasons, even rainy ones.
Join a Virtual Earth Day Celebration
Another great way to celebrate Earth Day from the comfort of your home is to join a virtual event! There are countless virtual events planned for Earth Day 2022, encouraging anyone to join and learn more about the earth.
“Now is the time for the unstoppable courage to preserve and protect our health, our families, and our livelihoods.” – EARTHDAY.ORG
These events usually involve interesting earthly topics presented by green-minded leaders, spectacular videos from the earth, live chats, etc. We recommend EARTHDAY.ORG’s virtual events, but you can find more online and on social media platforms.
Set Up a Fundraiser
One of many skills we have as virtual assistants is being tech-savvy! Therefore, we could use our talents to make the world a better place. With the help of Fundly, a crowdfunding site for online fundraising, you can raise money and accept donations to fulfill your dreams.
“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much” – Helen Keller
Think about your community and what is needed to make it a more friendly environment. Are the streets full of trash, are there some areas without running water, or do you feel the need to plant some trees of your own? Whatever the case may be, you are born to make a difference!
Virtual Tour of the Earth
Sit back, relax, and tour through our stunning green earth- virtually! Yes, you don’t have to pay hundreds of dollars to experience the world’s beauty with your own eyes- in fact, it’s completely free.
You can explore nature reserves, parks, gardens, zoos, and environmental wonders without leaving home. Be sure to take some time on Earth Day to browse through some of the finest places on earth!
Here are some of our top virtual tour recommendations:
Have you ever thought of organizing an outdoor picnic with your virtual colleagues? Well, there’s no better time than Earth Day to enjoy the outdoors with a healthy meal and great company. What’s more, it’s the perfect opportunity to get to know your team!
“No matter where you’re from, let’s celebrate Earth Day as one!”
You can set up a call via Zoom on your mobile device and invite everyone who would like to participate. If some of your colleagues can’t attend, we encourage you to ask your co-workers to eat outside and upload photos to a group album.
