Here at Hollr, we’re all about caring for and protecting the environment. As a result, we wanted to give you all some insight into Earth Day and what you can do to support it.
Earth Day is an event that takes place annually on the 22nd of April. The goal of the day is to support environmental protection worldwide. The first Earth Day commenced back in 1970 and since then, the Earthday.org charity has mobilized 1 billion individuals into taking action for the future of the planet and has now amassed over 75k+ partners working worldwide to drive positive environmental action.
Earthday.org’s mission is ultimately to ‘diversify, educate and activate the environmental movement worldwide.’ In order to create transformational positive change and hold the world accountable for the current environmental crisis we are facing. In light of this, Earth Day has become a perfect opportunity for environmental activism to take centre stage and get people listening and invested in helping make a difference.
While many people believe that we should be primarily holding large organisations accountable for the great effect they have on the environment, even as individuals, we still have the power to create meaningful change.
Earthday.org always push to let people know that ‘as an individual, you yield real power and influence as a consumer, a voter, and a member of a community that can unite for change.’ Earth Day is the perfect opportunity to show a real interest in helping create a more sustainable, brighter and greener future for everyone across the world.
So, with all this in mind, what can you actually do to support Earth Day 2021?
1. Make your next meal plant based, engaging with a climate conscious choice in food can be fun and even just one day a week meat free can help make a difference when animal agriculture is a leading cause of climate change.
3. Make an Earth Day Window Sign to let your neighbours know you're involved and to help support the Earth Day message.
4. Volunteer with Earthday.Org to get involved with future events and activism.
