Earth Day Photos 2013: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly (SUBMIT YOUR OWN PICTURES)

Earth Day 2013 is almost upon us. It's the perfect time to celebrate with incredible visuals of the planet, while at the same time reflecting on a landscape we need to protect.

Whether you hope to plant some trees later this month for Earth Day or limit your use of plastic and energy consumption, we want to see the planet through your eyes -- the good, the bad and the ugly.

Has your community turned an old oil refinery into a park or helped reforest an area? Do you live near a superfund site or a city with perpetual smog? Maybe today is just a good time to reflect on the beauty around you.

Either way, submit your Earth Day photos below and let us know what you hope to cherish or change this month as we celebrate the planet, and acknowledge both the positive and negative impacts that humans have had on it.
