Earth Day: April 22, 2018

Earth Day: April 22, 2018 Header Image
April 22, for most countries around the world, is a time to recognize Earth Day. First observed in 1970, the day was set apart as a time for communities across the globe to unite, discuss, and take action for environmental protection. More than 190 countries currently participate in Earth Day events, which are coordinated by Earth Day Network.
In the United States, Earth Day falls at the time of year when most of the country is waking up from winter and thinking ahead to summer. People are anxious to get outside again and spend time in wide, open spaces. This year, get some fresh air while doing good for the Earth and your community. Find a local Earth Day (or Earth Week) project to get involved in. Towns and cities across the country organize events like planting trees, picking up litter in public spaces, or cleaning up a river bank. Contact your town office to find out how you can get involved!
Another way you can make a difference this Earth Day is by supporting a highly-rated organization working on environmental protection issues. These highly-rated 3- and 4- star charities provide education, draft legislation, and lead efforts to ensure our earth will be a pleasant place to live for generations to come. Consider a donation to keep the earth green, the water blue, and the flowers blooming!
