Earth Day 2023
What is Earth Day?
Every year on April 22, Earth Day marks the anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement that began in 1970. Since then it has grown into a global event that includes a huge range of events coordinated by EARTHDAY.ORG. As the climate crisis becomes ever more serious, each Earth Day that comes along takes on extra significance.
It is believed that over 1 Billion people celebrate Earth Day in more than 193 countries. We strongly support this global initiative and feel that many of their values of environmental conservation resonate closely with our own.
What’s happening on this year’s Earth Day?
The theme for this year’s Earth Day is ‘Invest in Our Planet.’ Acting as a continuation of last year’s well-received campaign, the theme is focused on engaging governments, institutions, businesses, and the more than 1 billion citizens who participate annually in Earth Day to do their part – everyone accounted for, everyone accountable.
“In 2023 we must come together again in partnership for the planet. Businesses, governments, and civil society are equally responsible for taking action against the climate crisis and lighting the spark to accelerate change towards a green, prosperous, and equitable future. We must join together in our fight for the green revolution and for the health of future generations. The time is now to Invest In Our Planet,”
Kathleen Rogers, President of EARTHDAY.ORG.
