Earth Day is all about appreciating this awesome planet we share and recognizing the importance of environmental protection. With the annual event coming April 22, now’s the time to start planning your Earth Day adventures. Not sure where to start? StorQuest put together a quick list of activities to help you make this an Earth Day worth remembering. Let’s get started!
Sometimes what’s obvious is what’s best. There’s no better way to remind yourself why we have a specific day each year to celebrate Earth than to head outside and experience it in all its glory. Whether that’s a camping trip, a bike ride through mountain trails, or an afternoon tending to your garden, get outdoors and enjoy.
Reflect on Your Quests
Your past travels into the great outdoors are integral to who you are today. Go through old photos and videos of previous trips. Reminisce with friends who joined you on your journeys. Remind yourself of all the amazing sites you’ve explored over the years, the hikes you’ve trekked, the mountains you’ve climbed, the waves you’ve surfed, and the animals you’ve met during your travels. Our planet holds so many adventures, a great way to celebrate Earth Day is to just get stoked looking back at all you’ve experienced.
Plan Your Next One
If it’s been a while since your last great adventure, you’re probably eager to embark on your next one. Consider this Earth Day an opportunity to think about where you want to go next. Log your goals for when you’re finally able to get back out there again, seeking thrills, making new discoveries, and living life out loud. Get hyped!
Donate or Volunteer
Is there a cause you’re super passionate about? Eco-activism to effect systemic change has always been essential to Earth Day. Research online to find a charity or nonprofit organization whose passions align with yours, and see if they’re seeking volunteers or accepting donations.
Team Up With StorQuest
StorQuest celebrates Earth Day every day through our partnership with One Tree Planted. For every new storage unit rented, we’ll plant one tree to help reforest an at-risk growth area in the communities we serve. If you need extra space, rent a storage unit at StorQuest and help us plant it forward for the next generation! We also take part in initiatives with Sea Trees to support kelp restoration along the California coast.
StorQuest Self Storage gives you a convenient place to keep your gear between adventures. Find a StorQuest facility near you and start making room for more awesome.
