Earth Day was founded on April 22, 1970, and was started in the United States. Now, Earth Day is recognized by 193 countries around the world. At Earthday.org, you can find all types of education and programs that have developed over the years and are continually expanding. Earthday.org is full of different resources that can be shared on your social media or with your organization. You can also find opportunities to volunteer and contribute.
Earth Day gives us a great opportunity to address some of the harmful substances that can be found in your home and the way that those substances can affect the environment. Lead and lead paint, for example, can make its way into soils, water, and the air that we breathe, and can remain in the air as dust indefinitely. Asbestos and mold can also infect our air, soil and water during when left in buildings and demoed improperly. It is important to make sure that these harmful substances are removed from your home before in affects you or the environment. Construction companies should take extra care before the demolition process of a project so that these toxins are not pushed into the soil, air, or water source.
On top of removing these harmful toxins from the homes of our customers, we are also committed to increasing the air quality by planting trees through One Tree Planted on behalf of our customers. One Tree Planted embodies the message of Earth Day as they create a healthier climate, protect biodiversity and help reforestation efforts around the world. All by planting trees! We are proud to help contribute to this project!
For Earth Day 2021, many groups around the world have placed emphasis on the growing concern of climate change and the effects that this can have on different communities.
