April showers bring May flowers but it is also the onset of Earth Day celebrations. Honestly, we should be celebrating Earth Day every day, not just on April 22, 2014. To give you the biggest bang for the buck, Green Sisterhood is celebrating Earth Day the whole month of April with an Instagram challenge, Twitter party with prizes (oh I adore them) and a blog carnival. Yeah, Green Sisterhood is pulling out all of the stops! Why? Because we love the Earth as sappy as that might sound.

EARTH DAY EVENTS WITH GREEN SISTERHOOD
INSTAGRAM – APRIL 1 THROUGH APRIL 5TH
During the week of April 1 through April 5, Green Sisterhood is hosting an Instagram challenge with 7 other green sisters. The theme is the 5 Rs: refuse, reduce, reuse, repurpose, and recycle. If you want to follow or participate use the hashtag (#) each day for the particular challenge as well as #Earthdaygs.
Here is my first entry on refuse. I have an issue with energy bars. Although I recycled the wrappers with Terracycle I am still creating an energy bar footprint. It take energy to create them and more energy to upcycle them. Plus, most people don’t have access to recycling the wrappers.
I bet you have something you want people to refuse buying. So, be sure to tag the following bloggers so your images can be shared among our followers.

TWITTER CHAT– THURSDAY APRIL 3, 2014 9PM EST
As much as we love Instagram, we love Twitter more. A Twitter chat is like speed dating where you get to know new people and can win prizes.
If you missed our Peaceful Valley garden chat, we had over 60 participants during the week and people screamed for more. There was so much chatter that I couldn’t get in a 140 sentence at all! (And no, it wasn’t one of those chats where people had nothing to say but re-tweeting what everyone had to say. *BORING!*) Our twitter chats are fun, fun, fun with a capital “F!”
So due to popular demand, Green Sisterhood is back with another Earth Day Twitter party, Thursday, April 3 at 9 PM EST. Prizes include, reusable bags, reusable straws, glass containers, glass water bottles and reusable utensil sets! You have to follow @Greensisterhood on Twitter and use#earthdaygs so you can enter to win prizes. Details are below.
