15 Earth Day 2018 Instagram Caption Ideas That Will Inspire You To Get Outdoors

With Earth Day approaching, there is solid opportunity to showcase your best nature pictures. From fall foliage to crisp, turquoise waters there's a lot of this world to show off. Celebrate the beauty of Earth with pictures and inspirational words that will remind people this planet is sacred — and that we need to do all we can to conserve it. There are perfect Earth Day Instagram caption ideas that will inspire all of your followers. To be honest, you could probably pen an essay about the earth in your caption — but let's be real, people might not read paragraphs upon paragraphs under your picture. Let that picture of that waterfall say a thousand words and maybe stick to a few characters for your caption.

From quotes by oceanographer Sylvia Earle to Dr. Jane Goodall, there is a library of environmental quotes that will get you and everybody who consistently likes your Instagrams excited about picking up litter, composting, and going green. When you update your Instagram grid with #nofilter quality pictures of her royal highness, Mother Earth, you might just inspire everyone to put their phone down and get outside.

There's a lot to appreciate about the rivers, lakes, mountains, oceans, valleys and prairies. More than an Instagram post can ever sum up. But that doesn't mean that once Earth Day rolls around — on Apr. 22 — you can't turn your social media into a slideshow honoring all of this natural beauty! Get your point across even more with a caption that will make you want to hit the trails and clean your local park.
