Earth Day 2022 – Invest In Our Planet

Lower levels of manufacturing and fewer cars on the road allowed the earth to literally take a breather. NASA satellite and ground-based observations reported significant reductions in global air pollution over this time period.
Just two years of reduced human activity show how much our actions affect the Earth. So on Earth Day 2022 it’s fitting the theme is “Invest In Our Planet.” As we move back into our daily routines, it makes sense to reflect on this past year and continue to promote environmental protection.

These are all significant developments that will help Invest In Our Planet.
But waiting for institutions to act can take time. As individuals, we each play a critical role in the effort to Invest In Our Planet. There are plenty of actions we can take today that, collectively, add up to major impacts:
