April 22, 1970 marked the first formal Earth Day as a way to bring awareness to growing public concern over environmental degradation and the increasing emission of fossil fuels by countries across the developed world. The 1960s and 1970s in the United States were characterized by the emergence of social protests advocating against a breadth of issues from anti-war to anti-pollution. Since its inception, Earth Day has spread to become a global holiday and is celebrated in over 190 countries.
Each year, organizations across the world partner up to focus on Earth Day initiatives geared at promoting sustainability. From beach cleanups, to walk-and-roll events, to fundraisers of all sizes.
Here are a few ways to get involved in the Boston Area:
While Earth Day is a great opportunity to join your community and participate in a global event celebrating the importance of sustainability, climate action cannot be limited to a single day. Integrating sustainability into our daily lives from the food we eat to the companies we invest in is crucial in supporting efforts that seek to mitigate climate change.
