Still others choose to observe Earth Week or Earth Month, instead of limiting the observance to a single day. Whenever people may choose to celebrate, Earth Day/Week/Month is a time to celebrate the world in which we live, to commit to protecting our fragile planet, and to look for ways we can improve our communities.
