      Happy Earth Day! The day is celebrated every April 22nd.

      T he first Earth Day was in 1970. It was created in the United States to increase public awareness of environmental problems.

      A local group of people behind the company "My ECO" produce reusable tote bags so you can lower your carbon footprint.

      It tracks your use of reusable bags at your favorite grocery stores to show you how much of an impact you're making when you ditch plastic bags.
