Friday will be the 41st Earth Day celebration! This year’s Earth Day theme is A Billion Acts of Green. Earth Day Network has a goal to reach a billion pledges of green acts before the global Earth Summit in Rio in 2012!! As of today, they have over 80 million pledges! According to the site, “ A Billion Acts of Green is the largest environmental service campaign in the world that inspires and rewards simple individual acts and larger organizational initiatives that further the goal of measurably reducing carbon emissions and supporting sustainability.”
You can pledge your act of green in the following categories:
- Green Schools and Education
- Sustainable Development
- Conservation and Biodiversity
- Recycling & Waste Reduction
No matter what you pledge to do, however big or small, it counts that you are doing your part.
