Every April 22, it’s a day to celebrate Earth Day but also to create awareness that Our world needs transformational change. We believe that caring for the Earth is not a matter of one day but a change of habits to transform our individual lifestyle (which will influence as a consumer, a voter, and a member of a community that can unite for change).
Whether it’s a creative or functional upcycling, a walk in a park or through the woods, picking up litter, or buying more Earth-friendly products, here are many ways that you can help to care for your planet and making Earth Day Everyday.
It’s no secret the Earth is facing its fair share of issues. With global warming, pollution and biodiversity decreasing, it’s more important than ever to help show our support for our planet. With Earth Day approaching April 22nd, there are all kinds of ways we can help bring awareness to the importance of taking care of the planet, not just for Earth day – but every 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.”
The goal for 2016 is to plant 7.8 billion trees starting now.
This April 22nd marks the 45th anniversary of Earth Day, an annual event celebrated in 192 countries to support environmental protection efforts.
Join Meatless Monday and the global community to call attention to one of the simplest actions people can take to protect our environment – giving up meat once a week.
Experts estimate that livestock account for 14.5 percent of total global greenhouse gas emissions. Reducing our meat consumption even as little as one day a week can have an enormous impact on minimizing water usage, reducing greenhouse gases and cutting fuel dependence.
