Forty-eight years ago, on April 22, 1970, millions of people took to the streets to protest the negative impacts of 150 years of industrial development.

Earth Day has now become the largest civic-focused day of action in the world. This year, Earth Day is April 22, 2018 and will focus on rallying the world to end plastic pollution. The growth of plastics is growing exponentially and is so grave a situation today that it threatens the survival of our planet. Plastics are poisoning and injuring marine life, disrupting human hormones, littering our beaches and landscapes and clogging our waste streams and landfills.
