Kids Celebrate Earth Day in Bismarck

Posted: Updated:

If you haven't already heard, today is Earth Day.

Macy Egeland introduces us to a group of YMCA preschoolers who are getting their hands dirty to help clean up the planet.

These kids are out to prove you're never too young to make a difference.

"We are picking up garbage. Garbage. Garbage. Garbage."

At just 5 years old, this group already understands the importance of keeping the Earth clean.

"Why do you think picking up this garbage is a good thing for the Earth? 'So it doesn't disappear and get yucky and yucky.'"

Today they are walking around Sertoma Park picking up any garbage they come across..

"Pop. candy wrappers."

But they also found something a little strange..

"Pants. 'You found pants?!' (nods)"

"It teaches them that we can re-use things that will benefit the earth and to keep it safe and clean."- Verda

I think it's just something that will stick with them for years to come. As they get older they will remember what they learned.- Anna

In just half an hour, they collected 2 bags full of trash.

It's a small act, by some tiny kids.. but it's one that could make a big difference.

They go around the YMCA and VFW Arena picking up trash whenever it's nice ou
