Everything You Need to Know About Earth Day 2023

Posted by Snow on

It's that time of the year again! Earth Day is just around the corner and it's time to get involved in protecting our planet. Earth Day is an annual event celebrated on April 22nd worldwide to promote environmental awareness and the protection of the planet. So, what’s the purpose of Earth Day? The goal of Earth Day is to inspire the world to take action to conserve the planet and its natural resources, address environmental issues such as climate change, and promote sustainability. 

This year's theme is "Invest in Our Planet" and the focus is to engage governments, institutions, businesses, and citizens to take collective action toward protecting the planet. 

So, let's dive into everything you need to know about Earth Day 2023!

What is Earth Day 2023 About?

This year's theme highlights the need for urgent action to address the climate crisis and create sustainable, green economies for everyone.

The goals of Earth Day 2023 are twofold: to raise awareness about the pressing environmental issues facing our planet and to inspire individuals, communities, and governments to take concrete steps to address these challenges. 

One of the key ways in which individuals can get involved in Earth Day this year is by participating in local events and initiatives. From planting trees to cleaning up local parks and beaches, there are many ways to get involved and make a positive impact on the environment. Additionally, supporting environmentally-friendly companies and products, reducing energy and water usage, and advocating for environmental policies are other ways to help invest in our planet. 

Now is the perfect time to think about how we can make a positive impact on our planet. Here is everything you need to know about how to do Earth Day this year!

Impactful Ways to Participate in Earth Day 2023

Climate Literacy

Climate literacy is essential for the future of our planet and must be taught in every school worldwide. The lack of climate literacy has hindered efforts to address the climate crisis and has resulted in a lack of engagement from citizens with their governments. This has led to a slower transition to a green economy and has limited the creation of green jobs.

To overcome this, EARTHDAY.ORG™ has launched the Climate and Environmental Literacy Campaign, with the goal of providing high-quality education to students to help them become informed and engaged environmental stewards. The campaign combines grassroots efforts and national-level commitments to ensure that students receive fully integrated and assessed climate and environmental education, along with a strong civic education component.

It is imperative for learners to understand the implications of the climate crisis and to be equipped with the skills and knowledge to take action. This can only be achieved by providing them with a comprehensive climate and environmental literacy education. Only then will they be able to engage meaningfully with their governments and contribute to a sustainable future for our planet.

Sign the letter to the UNFCCC, either as an individual or as an organization to ​​tell global leaders at the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change to commit to compulsory, assessed climate and environmental education with a strong civic engagement component at COP27 this November. Or, you can sign the letter to the GEF, which tells global leaders at the Global Environmental Facility to expand funding opportunities. 

End Plastics

Plastic is one of the most common pollutants in our environment, harming marine and human health, littering beaches and landscapes, and clogging waste streams and landfills. The impacts of plastic pollution are far-reaching and it’s time to take action.

Everyday actions can have a significant impact on reducing plastic pollution. Simple steps like using a reusable water bottle, carrying a reusable shopping bag, and choosing products packaged in paper or glass instead of plastic can help. You can also encourage your friends and family to take action by sharing information about plastic pollution and its impacts.

EARTHDAY.ORG™ launched the End Plastic Pollution campaign to raise awareness about the impacts of plastic pollution and empower individuals to make a difference. You can join the movement by signing the petition calling for a global plastics treaty and supporting the Break Free from Plastic Pollution Act.

It’s time for us to come together and take action to end plastic pollution. The future of our planet depends on it. Join the End Plastic Pollution campaign today and help create a cleaner and healthier world for future generations.

Plant Trees

Participating in Earth Day 2023 can be as simple as planting a tree. The Canopy Project, initiated by EARTHDAY.ORG™, is aimed at improving the environment by planting trees across the globe. Since 2010, the organization has planted tens of millions of trees, working with global partners to reforest areas in need. Reforestation is an effective solution to tackle the challenges posed by climate change. By donating as little as $1 to The Canopy Project, you can plant a tree and contribute to a healthier and more sustainable environment.

Not only does planting trees improve the environment, but it also strengthens communities. The Canopy Project has been working to reforest areas with communities most at risk from climate change and environmental degradation. Additionally, the organization has been involved in tree-planting efforts in the aftermath of environmental disasters.

By supporting this initiative, you can be a part of the solution to combat climate change and help create a better future for generations to come. So, this Earth Day, consider planting a tree through this Earth Day project and join the effort to make our planet a greener and healthier place.

Vote Earth

Earth Day is an opportunity to use your voting power to protect the environment. With an ongoing environmental crisis, it is more critical than ever to vote in solidarity with our shared home. Voting is an easy way to ensure that we have leaders who follow science, promote sustainability, and work to prepare communities for future challenges.

It's time to demand an end to business as usual and exercise your civic duty. This Earth Day, check your voting rights in your state and protect our only home by voting for the environment. Together, we can make a difference and ensure that our planet remains healthy and livable for future generations. To make a difference, educate yourself about the issues, pledge to vote, register to vote, and vote early. Encourage your friends and family to do the same. Vote Earth this year and every year after. 

Global Cleanup

The Great Global Cleanup is a worldwide campaign aimed at cleaning up our communities, beaches, rivers, lakes, trails, and parks. The goal of this initiative is to rid the environment of waste and plastic pollution and help create a waste-free world. By participating in this effort, you can make a difference in your community and contribute to a healthier planet.

There are many ways to get involved in the Great Global Cleanup. You can partner with the campaign, host a cleanup event in your community, become a global cleanup ambassador, or participate in World Cleanup Day. Hosting a cleanup event is a great way to bring people together to make a difference and clean up your community. By becoming a global cleanup ambassador, you can help spread awareness about the importance of waste reduction and inspire others to take action.

Join the movement to create a waste-free world by participating in the Great Global Cleanup.

Sustainable Fashion

Fast fashion is characterized by its negative impact on the environment and its exploitation of workers in garment factories. But by taking control of our own choices as consumers, we have the power to change this trajectory.

Sustainable fashion is about creating an environmentally and socially responsible clothing supply chain. This can be achieved by making conscious choices in the sourcing, production, distribution, marketing, and consumption of clothing.

To do our part, we can:

  • educate ourselves on sustainable clothing 
  • choose to buy less and opt for quality over quantity
  • select natural materials like organic cotton, linen, or hemp
  • choose 100% recycled fabrics like 100% recycled polyester or viscose
  • research ethical brands that practice transparency and sustainability
  • buy second-hand clothing
  • take part in clothes swaps
  • learn to repair our own clothing
  • promote sustainable fashion by sharing pictures of our eco-friendly garments on social media
  • Sign the “Show Your Support: The Fashion Industry Must Change” petition

By taking these steps, we can help create a brighter future for the fashion industry. This future will be ecologically and socially responsible, and better for our planet and its inhabitants.

Making a Difference through Earth Day 2023

Earth Day 2023 presents a unique opportunity for individuals, organizations, and communities to take action and make a positive impact on the environment. While there are many ways to get involved, the key is to find an earth day activity that aligns with your interests, skills, and resources. Whether you lean into climate literacy, ending plastic use, planting trees, voting Earth, global cleanup, or sustainable fashion, every action counts and contributes to creating a sustainable future for all.

Small changes can have a big impact when done collectively. So, let's “invest in our planet” by coming together and taking action on Earth Day 2023. By making a difference in our own way, we can help protect and preserve the environment for generations to come.
