Show your Earth Day colors - print out the logo and place it in your window or on your car dashboard. Or maybe you'd like to color one of your own? There's a page for that, too. Give them a click and they're yours to keep.
These and other reminders and suggestions can be found in the Earth Week Special Edition of Pennsylvania Parks & Forests Foundation's weekly Take Five email. Read the special edition here, and Take Five every week at the PPFF News blog.
The first Earth Day in 1970 enlisted 20 million Americans and is credited with launching the modern environmental movement. It is now recognized as the planet’s largest civic event and it led to passage of landmark environmental laws in the United States, including the Clean Air, Clear Water, and Endangered Species acts. Many countries soon adopted similar laws, and the United Nations chose Earth Day 2016 to sign the Paris climate agreement.
Yet despite the numerous successes surrounding Earth Day, we still face many conservation challenges at home, in our nation, and globally. Earth Day 50offers suggestions on ways to mark the occasion (and make a difference).
And we're looking forward to the day when we can begin to think of rescheduling clean-ups, gatherings, and volunteer events of all kinds. If you'd like to be a part of the growing list of interested volunteers, sign up now and we'll be in touch!
