Looking Back on Earth Day 2014

Earth Day was held April 22 and over a billion people in 192 countries took action to celebrate. Rallies, demonstrations, clean ups, tree plantings, educational events, festivals and more took place in an attempt to protect the planet.

The theme of Earth Day 2014 was Green Cities. On Earth Day and throughout the year, cities are working to become more sustainable through improvements to their energy, transportation, and building infrastructure. In Australia, Adelaide introduced the world’s first completely electric solar-powered bus. To see a list of Green Cities visit the Green Cities website.

Earth Day 2014 has come and gone, but the work is not complete. Individual actions of people like you are critical in advancing the environmental movement.

Earth Day 2015 is right around the corner and we look forward to seeing all the work and initiatives that will take place in the meantime.
