What is it?

Earth Day is an international annual event held every April 22nd to encourage people across the world to be more environmentally friendly.  Earth Day started in 1970 and is now celebrated by more than one billion people.

What can we do?

  • Reduce, Reuse, Recycle! 
  • Spread the word - tell your friends about Earth Day on social media using the #earthday hashtag
  • Donate to an environmental charity such as Greenpeace,  Greenpeace are working to defend our oceans and forests and reduce the effects of climate change
  • Attend an Earth Day fundraising event such as Empower: Earth Day London or organise your own


  1. Earth Day should be everyday. If we all showed a bit more respect to our Earth and fellow human beings we may all have a chance for a happy and greener planet.
