Earth Day is one of the most important holidays on the planet — pun fully intended. It rolls around every year on April 22 and gives you a chance to wear green, appreciate plants, and celebrate the environment.

To fully embrace the day, there are plenty of ways to take action to protect Mother Earth. You could pick up litter at your local park, plant seeds or trees, volunteer in a community garden, call your state’s representatives to talk about the climate, show extra support for sustainable companies, and of course, you can always go all out on social media to spread a positive message.

To raise awareness on Instagram, go through your camera roll and find all your best nature pics. It could be photos from your recent trip to a National Park, snapshots of your plant babies, or pictures of the spring flowers blooming along your street. Before you hit post, don’t forget a punny Earth Day joke or a cute Instagram caption to go with it.

Everyone knows that the caption is often the most difficult part of sharing something on social media. While your picture catches someone’s eye, the caption is like the icing on the cake, especially if it’s funny and even more so if it sends a message.

Earth Day is, after all, all about spreading awareness about ways to save and protect the planet. So, for your Instagramming pleasure, here are 50 Earth Day captions and puns to rock your social media game.
