International Mother Earth Day

Posted by Peter MUIR


EarthdayOur planet is at a turning point. The massive global migration underway now from countryside to cities will demand huge investments in energy, water, materials, waste, food distribution, and transportation over the next 25 years. If the right investments are made now, this unique opportunity will be the catalyst for dramatic changes in the built environment and the fight against carbon emissions and climate change.

Held on April 22 since 1970, and what is referred to by the UN as International Mother Earth Day, this day aims at improving the way we treat our home. ┬áSo far more than one billion acts of green have been pledged on the Earth Day website – sign up yours today to help reach the target of two billion acts of green.

An idea –┬áStart Composting…
More than a billion pounds of food are thrown away every year. Help make a difference by turning your food waste into soil. Start composting today!
