Today is Earth Day, and if your skies are blue and bright, get outside to soak up the rays and create some art at the same time. The SunArt Paper Kit ($7) lets you create pretty stenciled art, thanks to light-sensitive paper and a few minutes of sunlight. The kit even tells you how to turn old film negatives into sun art prints with a bit more time.

Earth Day is on Sunday. It’s a time to think about how our daily routines are impacting the environment, while also helping us remember that our resources are not infinite. If you'd like to green your life even more, here are some ways you can celebrate Earth Day this weekend:
Time to recycle: Have an old pair of running shoes that just aren't cutting it anymore, or a yoga mat that's seen its share of Downward Dogs? Before you chuck them away, read our guide on where to donate your used sneakers, yoga mats, clothes, and more, and spend some time this weekend culling and donating your fitness gear.
Shop smart: If you're stocking up this weekend at the grocery store, make smart decisions that will be good for you and the Earth. Don't forget your reusable bag, choose local, organic foods, and try to avoid products with too much packaging to shop eco-friendly. Read more tips for greening your grocery shopping here.
Green your fitness: This weekend, take advantage of the nice weather and move your workouts outside. You'll use fewer energy resources if you trade the treadmill for an outdoor run.
Shop sustainable: Besides donating old clothes for recycling, you can also take care to buy brands that are known for their eco-friendly practices. Many companies use recycled materials, sustainable fabrics, or resource-saving production practices to make high-quality fitness gear. Read our list of some eco-friendly fitness brands here, and shop our favorite eco finds here.
If, like us, you were wowed by Blue Planet and awed by Planet Earth, you're in for a real treat. Just in time for Earth Day this Sunday, BBC Home Entertainment has released the epic series Frozen Planet on DVD and Blu-ray! The seven-part special delves into harsh Arctic and Antarctic environments with never-before-seen footage of animals above and below the ice. What better way to celebrate this amazing planet than by participating in a community cleanup event topped off with a quiet evening curled up watching critically-acclaimed footage of nature's iciest landscapes? The series certainly reminded us of the importance of preserving this frigid habitat.
We, of course, love that polar bears take center stage, and these cute little cubs in this clip just melt our hearts, not unlike the Summer sun on the ice!
Just cause Sunday's the holiday, doesn't mean your eco-tastic efforts should stop on Monday at 12:01 a.m. Remember 30 of my best tips to go green for days (and months and years) to come!

In honor of Earth Day (and wedding season here on PopSugar Network) we're serving up some easy and simple ways to make your wedding just a bit more earth friendly from a geek's perspective. These days, getting down with protecting Mother Earth can be simple.
From your wedding shower, to the big event and to all the details in between, little changes can certainly help our planet and our pocketbooks! Making your wedding eco friendly has never been more simple (and surprisingly) cost effective. Besides, wouldn't you rather spend all that extra cash on the honeymoon, or better yet? That flat screen HDTV you've been eyeing? Go, Earth!
- Invites - We've already talked about how a wedding website can save you time, money, and the planet, and since all of your ceremony and reception information is in one place, no one will be losing the details on your big day. Allowing your guests to RSVP directly on the site at any time can reduce or negate the need for paper invites. However, if you are a traditionalist and want to send out your dream monogrammed paper invitations, make sure your paper is 100 percent recycled.
For a few more tips, just keep reading.
Don't throw that away! It's never too early for parents of aspiring eco-tots to start teaching their kids about the importance of the three R's: reduce, reuse, and recycle. It doesn't have to be a scary or upsetting issue — no need to have that sad, sad commercial of a baby polar bear stranded on a detached glacier playing on repeat — but there's nothing wrong with stressing the valuable role that children play in the sustainability movement. The following children's books are beautiful stories that teach kids about protecting the earth, without lecturing or putting them in a panic.
