Earth Day is around the corner and we’ve been thinking about our planet more than ever. We’re always striving for ways to make a positive impact, while grappling with the fact that we’re just individuals who sometimes feel that we can’t make much of a difference at all. But if every single person reading this did something to make a small change, we bet you’d start noticing!

Arcadia Earth in Toronto offers a unique immersive experience exploring environmental concerns and motivating people to initiate positive actions for the betterment of our planet. They’ll even be free for visitor to visit on Earth Day, April 22nd.

In honour of Earth Month, they’re is encouraging you to participate in their Our Planet Challenge! We thought this sounded like such a fun way to be intentional about our acknowledgement, education, and care for the planet while getting out and doing something different with your date.

So, how can you have fun while making a difference?

From park clean ups to plant-based meals, Arcadia Earth’s Our Planet Challenge has something to fit every lifestyle.

Now, nobodies tracking whether or not you actually do these, okay? It’s up to you to accept and complete the challenges throughout Earth Month! A fun perk? The more you complete and share on social media tagging @arcadiaearth and using the hashtag #OurPlanetChallenge, the higher your chances are at winning some amazing prizes from their partners such as Hernest ProjectAmego Electric Vehicles and The Westin Harbour Castle.
