Aw, we love you, earth

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

If you've been wondering how you can express your affection for our planet, tomorrow is your answer. Saturday, April 22, is Earth Day. We turned to Green LA Girl to see what's happening around the city. We culled these from her list:
