From Earth Hour, Earth Day, and Beyond

Nature provides the air we breathe, the water we drink, and countless other resources. But the future of nature is uncertain; we're losing forests, wildlife, freshwater, and more at an unprecedented rate.

The Earth Day theme this year, Planet vs. Plastics, emphasizes the importance of keeping plastics out of nature, for planetary and human health. Every day, plastic is flowing into our natural environment – harming wildlife, ecosystems, and the livelihoods of many people. As the plastics crisis spreads, we must take action.

Every hour dedicated to the planet brings hope for generations to come.
