With Earth Month in full swing and Earth Day right around the corner on April 22, our team at HILO has put together a list of resources and ideas to inspire your building community.
EARTHDAY.ORG, the global organizer of Earth Day, announced that the theme for Earth Day 2023 will be Invest in Our Planet. Earth Day is focused on accelerating solutions to combat our greatest threat, climate change, and to activate everyone – governments, citizens, and businesses – to do their part. Everyone accounted for, and everyone accountable. Here are 52 actions and tips that your building community can take to make a difference, not just today but every day of the year.
“Teach-ins play a significant role in providing communities with the knowledge they need to advocate for a cleaner, more secure future.” Use this toolkit from EARTHDAY.ORG to plan an effective virtual or in-person teach-in that can bring your building community together and build capacity to make change.
The Great Global Cleanup
Global waste impacts everyone and the Great Global Cleanup is EARTHDAY.ORG’S flagship volunteer program to remove litter from our lands and waterways. Click here to learn more about how your building community can get involved and join the world’s largest cleanup this April.
Earth Month is a great opportunity to highlight local businesses in the community that are creating goods and services while thinking about their impact on the environment. Encourage tenants and their networks to shop locally and learn more about these businesses. To celebrate Earth Day, host a contest by inviting tenants to share how they are taking action for the chance to win a gift basket from a local retailer. Who doesn’t love a chance to win while making a difference?
We hope that these resources and ideas will inspire you and your tenants to participate in Earth Day 2023. We would love to hear about any Earth Day related activities and initiatives that you are planning for your community. Happy Earth Day!
