We’re not the only kids at this playground. There are countless species of animals who also call earth home.
And so, as we celebrate Earth Day on Tuesday, we want to give you seven more reasons to recycle that can of soda you just guzzled for lunch.
Seven more reasons to bike to the store for that gallon of milk instead of drive.
Seven more reasons to turn off your computer (gasp!) and save a little energy.
Breath in all of this sweet animal air before you power down. And remember, this gorilla and her fuzzy-wuzzy newborn (pictured above) love our earth just as much as you – and they’re not alone.
