Environmental Dates: Earth Day

“Trees will be the first of five major goals we are undertaking in honor of the five-year countdown to Earth Day’s 50th anniversary. These initiatives will make a significant and measurable impact on the Earth and will serve as the foundation of a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable planet for all.”

Earth Day 2016 — Trees for the Earth. Let’s get planting.

The goal for 2016 is to plant 7.8 billion trees starting now.

Why Trees?

  • Trees help combat climate change.
    They absorb excess and harmful CO2 from our atmosphere.
  • Trees help us breathe clean air.
    Trees absorb odors and pollutant gases (nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide and ozone) and filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark.
  • Trees help communities.
    Trees help communities achieve long-term economic and environmental sustainability and provide food, energy and income.

TAKE ACTION. Plant a tree. Make a donation. Spread the word.

We can do this. #trees4earth
