Happy Earth Day 2017! This is the day to celebrate the beautiful planet we call home. 🌏
Earth Day 2017’s Campaign is Environmental & Climate Literacy
Education is the foundation for progress. We need to build a global citizenry fluent in the concepts of climate change and aware of its unprecedented threat to our planet. We need to empower everyone with the knowledge to inspire action in defense of environmental protection.

So what’s changed since Earth Day 1970?
Today’s Google Doodle (those cute cartoons or animations that replace the Google logo with famous / celebration days) follows the story of a fox who dreams about a polluted Earth, wakes up and urgently starts making lifestyle changes to care for the Earth. A point we all reach eventually, so why not today? 🙂
Google Doodle also has some Earth Day tips:
- Turn off lights when leaving a room
- Plant a tree
- Try carpooling, walking, biking or taking public transit for a day
- Eating local fruits, veggies or locally sourced foods can reduce emission and waste
- And more!
What did you do today to celebrate Earth Day 2017? Do share below!
