Every year on April 22nd, Earth Day marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. As of the year 2020, we celebrated 50 years of Earth Day!
EARTHDAY.ORG’s mission is to diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide. It’s time for the world to hold sectors accountable for their role in our environmental crisis while also calling for bold and innovative solutions. This will require action at all levels, from businesses and investors in both cities and national governments.
That’s where we all come in as individuals! We yield power and influence as a consumer, a voter, and a member of a community that can unite for change. When our voices and actions are united with thousands of others, we create a movement that is inclusive, impactful, and impossible to ignore. This is why I encourage you this Earth Day to determine your environmental impact as a single human being and make an effort to create positive change in your life towards living a sustainable lifestyle.
Do you know how much you alone, impact our planet earth?
Take the following tests this Earth Day and determine your environmental impact:
- Calculate your carbon footprint and make changes to reduce where necessary, it’s something we can all do to help the planet.
- Plastic pollution is one of the most important environmental problems that we face today. Calculate your plastic consumption, then use the tips to help break free from single-use plastics!
- Try a foodprint calculator to find out exactly how your meals impact the planet.
- Be a part of the change. Change your diet to fight climate change! Try participating in meatless Mondays! Check out some plant-based recipes.
