About Earth Day 2021

The first Earth Day in 1970 helped bring environmental issues to the forefront of public consciousness. With each passing year, we recognize more and more how important it is to celebrate and protect our planet every day. We also recognize the need for our environmental efforts to be intersectional in order to promote climate justice for all.

This year, use the hashtag #goldforgreen on social media to share how you choose to celebrate the Earth and those working to protect it.



With virtual and in-person events/opportunities happening all throughout the month of April, we hope you find a way to feel connected to community, nature, and self from wherever on Earth you may be.
