Living in one of the most beautiful parts of the world sure is great and Victorians are doing everything they can to keep it that way.

Earth Day is just one excuse to highlight and showcase particular acts that go a long way to minimize our carbon footprint.

First instated in 1970 as a way to protest the negative environmental impact of over a century of industrialization, Earth Day is now celebrated in 192 countries by over 1 billion people.

So without further ado, here are just a few things that people in Victoria are doing to show their love for the planet we live on:

1. This Little Free Library is getting an Earth Day makeover

2. Broadening horizons at this environmental poetry reading

3. This beach cleanup initiative at Clover Point

4. The City of Victoria spotted recycling the old Blue Bridge

5. Learning all about Earth Day at this free guided tour in Beacon Hill Park
