Earth Day has been celebrated in the United States since 1970 and is now observed in nearly 200 countries across the world. Unprecedented environmental crises such as deforestation, desertification, famine and drought, polluted seas and rivers, and rising global temperatures demand that all of us work together to protect and sustain our common planet.
We can do this through simple acts of conservation. Planting trees and flowers, recycling our waste, caring for animals, and buying organic foods can all help contribute to a renewable lifestyle. Deciding to walk, bicycle, drive an electric or hybrid vehicle, or use public transportation will help make a difference.
Stay informed. Use renewable energy. Learn how to plant and grow your own food. Vote for elected officials who pledge to support the environment and hold them accountable. Do what you can every day. Small acts can produce big results.
Most of all, go outside today and enjoy the beauty of spring. Happy Earth Day!
