Happy Earth Day!

Posted by on Apr 21, 2016 in Blogs | 0 comments

April 22, 2016 marks the 46th anniversary of the Earth Day movement that has been inspiring passion and action toward environmental issues since 1970. The Earth Day Network’s main goals for this year’s Earth Day and the future include planting 7.8 billion trees, divesting from fossil fuels, and making cities entirely renewable. This movement strives to protect the Earth for our generation and beyond.

There are many ways to get involved, including:

  1. Donating to the cause
  2. Organizing a tree-planting team in your local neighborhood
  3. Starting a recycling drive
  4. Picking up trash at local parks or beaches
  5. Setting up a fun event (screening an environmental-themed documentary/movie, inviting experts to give a talk about ways to save Earth, etc.)

To help reach The Earth Day Network’s goal of 3 billion Acts of Green, click here to read about ways you can contribute to save the planet! You can track your online energy use, buy local produce, or start composting. There are endless opportunities!

As Gandhi said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
