Earth Day is on its way! Are you ready? What are YOU doing for Earth Day on April 22? We asked Disney stars like Ross Lynch, Olivia Holt, and a bunch of others what they did last Earth Day (and every day) to stay green. You might be inspired!

ROSS LYNCHAUSTIN & ALLY AND TEEN BEACH MOVIE
“I was actually at Disney World. Animal Kingdom opened on Earth Day, and they were celebrating their 15th year of being open. They had a celebration and it was really cool! Animal Kingdom has all these animals, and they are really working hard to preserve their habitats. So it was really cool to be a part of all that, because I love animals!”

MAIA MITCHELLTEEN BEACH MOVIE
“We lit a bunch of candles. My roommates and I came up with a plan to be more environmentally friendly. We always recycle and make sure we turn lights off, but there is so much more you can do!”

BLAKE MICHAELDOG WITH A BLOG
“I actually bought some flowers and planted them in my house. I love gardening.”

CHLOE AND HALLE BAILEY – WINNERS OF RADIO DISNEY’S THE NEXT BIG THING
Chloe: “We just celebrated the wonder of it. We went outside. We sat on the grass and we just enjoyed the air. We embraced it! A lot of people take this wonderful beautiful Earth for granted, and I feel like we need to enjoy it more.”

CAMERON BOYCEJESSIE
“We did a lot of fun stuff! We planted trees and cut down on our garbage. I try to make a constant effort so it’s not just on Earth Day.”

CALUM WORTHYAUSTIN & ALLY
“On Earth Day I like to plant trees. I like to go out and not use any electricity or use cars. I like to really commit to it.”

OLIVIA HOLT – KICKIN’ IT
“I was on set on Earth Day. We had all these recycling bins on set, and we were really good about turning off the lights when we left our dressing room. So it was a big day for us—it was super fun!”

STEFANIE SCOTT – A.N.T. FARM
“We recycle on our set. We recycle all of our scripts and everything!”

KELLI BERGLUND LAB RATS
“I do things for Earth Day every day. I recycle every day. On Earth Day, I recycled!”

KATHERINE MCNAMARA – JESSIE AND KICKIN’ IT
“I went to the flower store and I bought a bunch of flowers and flowerpots. I put them up on my deck and just enjoyed the day!”

JAYLEN BARRON – GOOD LUCK CHARLIE
“I’ve always been conscious of the Earth. I never use too much water and I never pour oil down the sink. That’s a definite no-no in my house. And for Earth Day, I wore green!”

GARRETT CLAYTON AND MOLLEE GRAY – TEEN BEACH MOVIE
Garrett: “I didn’t drive my car and I didn’t use electricity. It was really hard!”
Mollee: “I walked down a street with a couple of my friends, and we picked up every piece of garbage we found and put it in a bin!”

CAROLINE SUNSHINE SHAKE IT UP
“I spent the day before Earth Day filming a PSA (public service announcement) for the Disney Channel so that kids would know about national parks. I spent Earth Day at the beach!”

P.S. Earth Day is a great day to remember to love our planet, but it’s super-important to remember to love our planet EVERY DAY!
