Earth Day

(Santa Cruz, Bolivia)

Earth Day, which takes place on April 22 of each year in almost every country of the world, is a special day set aside to learn about how we can do better at taking care of our planet and our environment. It was founded by U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson in 1970.

The Earth Day Network is now the official coordinator. In some countries, activities are planned for an entire week. In Bolivia school children are taught about environmental issues that Bolivia faces.

Learn more about how you can take action, either individually or through your group or organization, to demand our leaders take this issue more seriously. How can you take action to help protect our environment and keep our Earth healthy? Simply by taking very small actions each and every day. Start by changing just one or two habits at a time. Make a commitment and share it online simply by typing in a short sentence about what you plan to do, into the BILLION ACTS OF GREEN space at the Earth Day Website here.

Even if you don't share your pledge or take any action publicly, remember that each tiny step we take counts when you add up all the tiny steps 6 billion people COULD take.

I've pledge to continue to use to inform and create awareness. At EVERY DAY is Earth Day. Click here to see how we're working with other organizations to create awareness.
