Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22 to remind us to take action to protect our planet. It’s part of a movement that began in 1972 to help clean up, improve and restore our factory for wildlife and people.

“Now is the time to change everything – the business climate, the political climate and the way we act against the climate”, according to earthday.org. “Now is the time for unstoppable courage to preserve and protect our health, our families and our livelihoods.”
