April 22nd marks the annual celebration of Earth Day. More than 1 billion people in 192 countries now participate in Earth Day events and activities each year, making Earth Day the largest civic observance in the world. Everyone is invited to participate in Earth Day events and help make our climate better.
The 2021 Theme for Earth Day this year is “Restore Our Earth”, which focuses on natural processes, emerging green technologies, and innovated thinking that can help restore the world’s ecosystems. It is up to each and every one of us to help Restore Our Earth to help support our jobs, livelihoods, heath and survival, and happiness.
