We never envisioned spending the 50th Earth Day this way. Primarily indoors.
Yet here we are, collectively playing our part to help solve a global problem like COVID-19. The environmental challenges of our present day are also formidable.
Humanity can solve these challenges. Look no further than the movement sparked by that initial Earth Day in 1970. People came together and urged their leaders to advance cleaner air and water. We all have a part to play in the next 50 years.
In this moment, when many of us are feeling a little separated from nature, we'd like to remind you:
Nature is a part of you. It always has been. It's more important now than ever that we value it and act for its protection.
Make a Stand for Nature
Join us in honoring Earth Day by shining a light on the important role nature can play in the national and global recovery from COVID-19. Let's urge U.S. Congress to invest in the economy in ways that provide jobs while keeping our air, water and natural world safe.
The three people ahead come from different walks of life but are linked through their connection to the natural world. When life is spinning, nature gives them solace, gratitude and new insight.
We hope you'll find a little of yourself in these stories.
