What is Earth Day?

Earth Day is an annual event which aims to raise awareness for some of the serious environmental problems we’re facing, and inspire action towards protecting our planet and preserving its natural resources.

On Earth Day, people across the globe participate in activities such as tree planting, beach cleanups, and recycling initiatives to make a positive impact on the environment. It's a great opportunity for individuals and organisations to come together and make a difference in protecting our planet for future generations.

When is Earth Day?

The annual event takes place on April 22nd every year, but the entire month of April is sometimes referred to as Earth Month. Established in 1970 as a reaction to the 1969 oil spill in Santa Barbara, the event has grown into a worldwide movement, with over 1 billion people participating in Earth Day activities each year, and it is now observed in over 193 countries.

What is the theme for Earth Day 2023?

The tagline for Earth Day 2023 is ‘Invest In Our Planet’. Acting as a continuation of last year's successful theme, the concept is focused on investing in a green economy and working towards a healthier and more sustainable future.

How Can You Get Involved?

From tree planting to taking part in the The Great Global Cleanup campaign, there are so many ways each of us can get involved and make a difference – no matter how big or small. The Earth Day organisers have put together a handy action toolkit, which is a great source for inspiration.

Want To Get The Kids Involved?

Educating the next generation is fundamental if we want to create long-term change. The Willsow books are a fantastic resource that you can use to teach children about sustainability while allowing them to have fun.
